District 5400's Rotary Youth Exchange Students who are in the District from other countries this year went to the McCall Winter Carnival. They meet the kids that will be leaving our District to go to other countries next school year.
They stay at Pilgrim Cove for the weekend and while there, they give presentations on their home countries to attendees as well as speak of their experience during their exchange here.
They go skiing at Brundage and swimming at Zimms Hot Springs on Friday. On Saturday, they ride on a float in the Mardigras parade with signs they have made with the countries from which they came and to where they went when they arrived. The outgoing students made signs from where they live to where they are going next school year.
You can see our Marty Gallo (2nd sign from the left) with is sign "Argentina to Caldwell." Currently he lives with President Jeff Hunsicker and attends Caldwell High School. And next to him is Naida Camancho, of Caldwell who will be going to Denmark next school year.
