Duncan McLeod gave an interesting update on the Rocky Mountain International Student Program, which brings in over one hundred students to the East Kootenays from around the world each year.  The students attend local  schools in Revelstoke, Golden, Invermere, Kimberley, Cranbrook and Fernie.  Duncan explain how the Rocky Reward program has been developed to get these International students involved in their communities.   The students earn points for participating in school clubs and sports, volunteering at school and in their communities by participating in various events, and by getting good work habit grades on their school report cards.  Students who earn enough points are rewarded with a free trip to Vancouver at the end of the school year.  Some of the interesting programs discussed included: "Grab a Granny and Go", volunteering as a "Snow Angel" and with a little thought the types of programs are limitless.  This is a good opportunity for Rotary to pick up some volunteers when needed for some of our local projects.  Thanks, Duncan !
