At our regular Rotary meeting on Wednesday, September 28, our exchange student, Zoe Johannsen was our program.  She was extremely poised and spoke English very well.  She clearly charmed our club members.
After telling us about her home country, Austria, she also told us about her family, her friends, her school and her experiences to date in Anchorage.
Zoe invited a rebound exchange student, Andrew Kagerer, who just returned from a year in Indonesia and is the son of AER member Barbara Kagerer, to attend our meeting and provide moral support.
Not only did Zoe provide the program for our meeting, she also brought an Austian meringue dessert made from her grandmother's recipe to the meeting to auction.  Craig Bledsoe was one of the lucky high bidders who provided funds for Zoe's West Coast tour.
