YOUTH EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITIES

Our exchange student Hugo is on spring break from March 20-25, 2018.  He currently is living with Kathy Gatterdam who's readjusting to life with a teenager after sending her daughters to college.  If you would like to take him out to do something fun it would be appreciated. 
 
From Feb 26 to Mar 2 we will host a Youth Exchange Vocational student from Peru who is interested in Architecture/Construction.  Would you be willing to meet with the student?  Have them shadow you?  Teach them about your business?  Please contact Kathy Gatterdam if you are willing.  
NEW BOARD MEMBER ELECT
When Bill Corbett was elected by the Club Board in December to become the Vice President elect, it provided an opportunity to appoint someone to the remaining two years of his board seat.  At the January meeting of the Club Board, Amanda Bowen was unanimously selected to fill the appointment.  Her two year term on the board will begin July 1, 2018.  Amanda is an account executive at iHeart Columbus.  You may hear her voicing a number of commercials carried by the iHeart Columbus stations.  
VOCATIONAL LUNCHES 2018
On April 16, members have the opportunity to visit fellow Rotarians and others business for our annual Vocational Lunch.  There is not a meeting at the BoatHouse.  It is your opportunity to learn about our members companies and vocations.

WHO DO WE SERVE

Recently a prize donation application was being developed for our upcoming Derby Day Soiree on May 5, 2018.  As a few on the committee were discussing whom we serve, a list was generated for the application.  Now, I am sure that we have left a few people out, so I am asking that you send me, Scott Brown, an estimate of the number of people your committee will serve this year if not represented here.  
 
We help;
5200 3rd graders receive dictionaries,
10,000 high schoolers through the Student Service Above Self Program,  
several hundred at the Rafiki Orphanage and Academy in Nairobi, Kenya,
another several hundred with water wells in Oromia, Ethiopia,
30 Military Veteran students at OSU,  
dozens of children at the Homeless Families Foundation Olympics,
countless children were affected by the Franklinton Youth Park clean up,
70 students receive scholarships each year,
30 high school students participate in the Enterprise Academy,
15 children with the Childhood Cancer Family Connection Christmas presents, 
and the entire student population at Colerain Elementary during our 97th Christmas Party.

I apologize if I've missed you.  Help me keep adding to this list or refining it with better numbers.
