Presentations:
 
Our exchange student, Ivanna Platt, described her first ever trip to Honolulu, Hawaii, thanks to Rotary. Sche described this trip as the best week of her life, filled with surfing, hiking, snorkling and new friendships. She met others from France and Spain and thought Hawaii was "like heaven".
 

Program:

 
Speaking of saves, Doug Cole saved everyone's bacon as a replacement program for the scheduled one. He had only a couple of hours to prepare, and gave us insights into the Adventures of refurbishing a "free" Cessna. This was a very interesting program of his experiences refurbishing a 1976 Cessna 172 that he "purchased" for $2 from his friend Roger Rue.
 
Through his stories and photos, Doug shared the great effort and committment it took he and his partner (a registered airplane mechanic) to fully restore the Cessna. 
 
Doug shared his motivation for owning and refurbishing small planes as the desire to bring the joy of flying (through hands-on experience, not virtual) to young adults and children. He has been able to do just that through his volunteer work with Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
 
His photos included the joy of flying for the first time for some of the young men that Doug mentors.
