VISIT TO NEBRASKA AND WYOMING
For 2 weeks in late September and early October this year my wife Liz and I enjoyed a Rotary Friendship Exchange between our District 1010 North of Scotland and District 5440 Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming.
This was the return visit following a visit to Scotland earlier this year in June. We had a wonderful time with five different Rotarian Hosts and the experience reminded us of ITHF but between Districts rather than on a one to one basis. During the two week tour we took the opportunity to extol the virtues and similarities with ITHF about which very few of our hosts had heard (indeed Rotary’s best kept secret) with some degree of success with at least three of them signing up to ITHF.
Following the tour Liz and I flew to Fresno with the intention of ‘doing’ Yosemite but the vagaries of the US Government meant that we could only “drive through without stopping and looking.” We continued on to Lake Tahoe and then to our first ITHF contact in Folsom Lake.
