GROUP CULTURAL EXCHANGE:  Ready For a WORLD OF CHANGE?
Application DEADLINE: December 4, 2017
 
 
ISRAEL District 2490
       Inbound: April 12 - 22 (revised)
       Outbound: April 25 - May 7 (revised)
Germany District 1860 - Postponed
    
Rotary International has created a new Group Cultural Exchange (GCE). This is a hybrid between the traditional Group Study Exchange and Rotary Friendship Exchange, and is open to Rotarians and Non-Rotarians!
 
DG Kyle Haugen has arranged a Group Cultural Exchange next spring with District 2490 in Israel.  This will be approximately a two-week trip.  We expect the Israeli team here April 12-22 . The outbound team to Israel will travel April 25- May 7. The purpose of the trips is to foster international goodwill, peace and understanding. Team members will help identify service projects that can be executed by clubs working together from each District.
 
The team will live in home stays in their destination districts.  However, this is a pay as you go trip. Participants are expected to fund their own transportation and may be required to purchase some meals and foot other expenses.
 
Teams are open to Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike who are at least 25 years old.  Team members may go as couples.  Criteria details are listed in the links found here.
 
Applications are available from the District office or can be downloaded from the links here.   The deadline for receipt of the applications is December 4, 2017.  All applicants will be interviewed for the teams on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at the Boy Scout Service Center, 393 Marshall Ave, St Paul, MN.
 
Contact Kathy Hughitt kathy.hughitt@rotary5960.org or phone (651) 636-9054 for more information.
From District Governor Kyle Haugen:  If you read the newsletter that came out earlier this week you got a preview, but I’d like to announce our Tap Room Tour!  This idea came out of the event we had at Summit Brewery in July…it was a great event, so why not take the show on the road!  The Tap Room Tour will be a way for Rotarians from around the District to come together to get to know each other, learn more about Rotary in an informal setting and enjoy some good beer! 
 
  • Thursday, December 7- Mankato Brewery in Mankato (REGISTER)
 
It’s free to register, and appetizers are included.  Your only cost is for your beer!  For more information, CLICK HERE

From District Governor Kyle Haugen:
You may be familiar with Group Study and Rotary Friendship Exchanges…they’re great programs that help create goodwill and cultural understanding throughout the world.  I’d like to officially introduce our Rotary’s new Group Cultural Exchange program!  These exchanges take elements from the Study and Friendship exchanges and combine them in to one!  We’re excited to have TWO opportunities for Rotarians and Non-Rotarians in our District to participate in these exchanges:
 
  • District 2490- Israel: April 24-May 8, 2018
  • District 1860- Germany: Late May-Early June, 2018
We’re looking for teams of eight for each trip, made up of a combination of Rotarians and non-Rotarians, ages 25 and over.  For more information and to find registration materials, CLICK HERE!  Don’t wait…our registration window is a short one: it closes December 4th!
