For over 75 years, students and host families have broadened their horizons through Rotary Youth Exchange. More than 80 countries and over 8,000 students each year participate in the program, which is administered at the regional level by Rotary districts and at the local level by Rotary clubs. This week, Peterborough Rotary’s inbound student, Johannes (John) Brandstaetter will make his formal presentation to our club.

John has attended several of our meetings, and if you have not had a chance to get to know him, Monday will be an excellent opportunity to do so. John’s presentation will be preceded by an overview and update on our exchange program by Bob MacDonald.

Please come, and let’s ensure John has a great memory of our club to share when he returns home.


Great news!
We have $20,225 in pledges for Wilder Rotary Park—just over our original goal. Although many contributed or helped in the fundraising, President-Elect Pam Brenner's leadership was instrumental in achieving our goal. Pam saw an opportunity, seized it, and led her team—notably, Dave Drasba, Bob Hanson, and John Kaufhold—to a clear success.

Thank you, Pam, and thank you, Dave, Bob, John, and everyone else who participated!

The countdown to our annual pancake breakfast continues.
Just two more weeks!

If you haven’t had a chance to sign up on the event duty roster, be sure to touch base with Laura or Ted, and let them know you want to help.

Our regularly scheduled board meeting will be this Thusday, March 21, from noon to 1:30 PM at the Peterborough Recreation Department.
