EUROPE WITH PATY ANDREDE
Last December my husband, our daughter, and I decided to travel through Europe on vacation. I wrote to some ITHF European members and it worked out fine with one of them, Tony, from London and we had a wonderful time staying with him. Our trip began December 2 nd when we flew from Rio to New York. From there we went to Italy, Switzerland, France and we got to London on December 16th. Tony was waiting for us at St. Pancras International Train Station. We got to know part of his family while staying with him until December 20 th and we loved it all. On the 17th his Rotary Club had the Christmas Party and we were invited to celebrate with them. It was an unforgettable event where we were able to meet other Rotarians and celebrate Christmas and the Rotary spirit. That event was very special too because my husband, Alex, was awarded with a Paul Harris Fellow Title that evening.
