Our Guest Speaker today was relatively new member John Campbell, and what a great presentation he gave about his very long term connection with the Rotary Youth Exchange Program, being  invited to be a Youth Exchange student in 1992 by Mermaid Beach Rotary Club, going to Denmark for a year of excitement and amazing adventures,  not just in Denmark but all of Europe. When he returned home he then gave back to Rotary by first joining Surfers Paradise West Rotary Club, then eventually being involved in running the Youth Exchange Program for the District and also RYPEN, RYTS and RYLA, other very worthwhile youth programs of Rotary. He has now joined our Club last year and amazingly his daughter Emily is now a Youth Exchange Student, and sponsored by our Club, she left last week fo a year long adventure in Italy!
