LOVE TO TRAVEL??   ENJOY ROTARY FRIENDSHIPS??  Then consider a Rotary Friendship Exchange!!
Rotary Friendship Exchange (RFE) is an international program for Rotarians, including  spouses and partners, which provides a unique opportunity to forge lasting international friendships and experience another culture first hand in the homes of Rotarians in another country!    The goal of the exchange is to advance international understanding and peace through visits to Rotary districts around the world.  Exchanges are reciprocal and usually last 2 weeks.
Our district 10 member Rotary Friendship Exchange team has just returned from a wonderful 3 week trip to Thailand.  We were able to experience the beautiful Thai culture hosted by Rotarians from   Bangkok, Phitsanulok, Nan, and the northern mountains of Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, visiting elegant temples, riding elephants, rafting down a river, projects with the youth, tea plantation, history museums and so much more.     Not only did our team visit project sites and present programs to 11 Rotary Clubs but also visited with Clubs and hospital personnel about serving as the international partner for 4 future humanitarian grants.  So many lovely memories made while forming lasting friendships and sharing Rotary ideas for “doing good in the world”.
The Thailand RFE team will be visiting in our District from September 9 – 24, 2019.  We plan a huge Texas welcome!!
Our next D5730 RFE team will be during the 2019-20 year!!  Dates to be announced!
