Youth Exchange Roundtable
Posted by Scott Brown
The Youth Exchange Committee wishes to invite you to this Monday’s “Roundtable” welcoming back Bess Schieber, our long-term exchange student to Poland in 2009-2010. The “Roundtable” is a regular part of the exchange program which allows our students the opportunity to share their experiences with Rotarians. Bess will present pictures and stories of her exciting time in Poland and eastern Europe. In particular, Bess will be able to provide a unique view on the events of April 10, 2010, when a plane crash in Russia killed nearly 100 Polish government officials, including the president. Grief, fear and paranoia overwhelmed a country that had only thrown off Soviet domination in the 90s. We will also hear from Bess’s father, our very own Mark Schieber, on how the experience has broadened Bess’s regular circle of friends and viewpoint to be global. The Roundtable, including lunch, will start at 11:30 a.m. in the Harding Room on the 1st floor. After our program at approximately 12:30 p.m., we will join the full club meeting. Email the office at email@example.com to reserve your spot at the Roundtable luncheon.
