Looking for Host Families for the 2019-2020 School Year

 

The Greenville Rotary is looking for families who would be interested in hosting an exchange student during the 2019-2020 school year.  Greenville has a wonderful history of hosting an exchange student every year and an integral part of this is finding families to open their homes to youth from around the world.  

 

The fascination and rewards of temporarily hosting a teen from another country is a unique opportunity provided by Rotary Clubs worldwide.  Students come to our community and enroll in GCS for a full year. During that time, they stay with three different families to give them a sense of the diversity of family life in the U.S. The average stay with each family is 3-4 months.

Some families may have children close to the age of the exchange student, some may have older or younger children, others may be childless or empty nesters. Some families may be more interested in sports, others in culture. The only requirements are a separate bed for the student, open minds and big hearts.

Students are treated as members of the family, not as guests. If your children are assigned chores, your Rotary student can also have family chores. It’s the student’s job to adapt to the family, not vice versa.  By hosting a Youth Exchange student in your home, you’ll make a young person’s dream come true, and you and your family will share an unforgettable and fulfilling experience.

If you are interested in becoming a host family please contact Greenville Rotary Youth Exchange Officer, Todd Hilgendorff.  518-966-5070 ext. 519. hilgendorfft@greenvillecsd.org

Greenville Rotary's tree lighting event for 2018 was a true success. Thanks to all our tree sponsors, Rotarians, Interact students, Santa and Mrs. Claus, the Grinch, the Town of Greenville, and everyone who brought their children to visit with Santa, get a gift, win prizes, and enjoy hot cocoa and cookies!
Greenville Rotary was thrilled to welcome four new members to our club last month. Pictured at their installation are: (l. to r.) Robert Snyder, Jr, sponsoring Rotarian, Tom Vance, Hop Barn Brewing; Caressa Kelly and Madyson Vance, The Tasting Room; Irene Vance, Clear Paths Massage and Reflexology, and sponsoring Rotarian Jessica Snyder.
Trunk or Treat 2018 was a success! Hundreds of children joined the Greenville Rotary Club and the GCS Interact Club for safe trick-or-treating. Thanks to all of those who brought their decorated vehicles and to all the parents who brought their kids. See you next year!

Tuesday,October 16 was DictionaryDay at the Scott M. Ellis Elementary School.  Each third-grade student was given a brand-new dictionary, courtesy of the Greenville Rotary Club.  A dictionary scavenger hunt and other games followed.  The dictionaries are used by students and teachers throughout the year.   Ellis Principal Peter Mahan assures our club that the printed books arestill valuable, even in this era of digital dependence.  Pictured are Rotarians Barbara Licata and Patty Ublacker distributing the dictionaries to students.
