The Rotary is pleased to be assisting four talented young ladies head abroad this coming school year! From left to right above, Mattie will be heading to the Czech Republic, Avery will study in Thailand, Maisy will spend the year in Japan, and Annalise will be in Sweden. Our out-boule Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) students gave a presentation to the Crested Butte Rotarians this morning describing their host countries and sharing what they’re most excited and concerned about. All four will take most, if not all, of their classes in their host country’s native language, and they’re learning the languages quickly. The Rotary’s annual Duckie Race provides the funding to help sponsor RYE students, and we are thankful to all of the volunteers and participants who help make this happen! Tickets for the 2018 Duckie Race will be available soon!
Good luck, Mattie, Avery, Maisy and Annalise! We look forward to hearing about your adventures throughout the coming year.
