This week we will learn about Jem Friends from their director, Liberty Barrett.  Last week we decorated their three residence homes for the holidays. This is a program which supports young people who have aged out of foster care.
Our Foreign Exchange Student Ian Wallace is checking in from France:
Dear Mr. Holscher, 
One of my host club's members suggested this to me so I thought I might as well do it. I'm going to give a little report and hopefully you can show the rest of my sponsor club. I think that the decision to go on exchange has been a good one. Before I left I was optimistic and happy to have the opportunity to see another part of the world. Well, I have definitely seen a lot. The first month was the worst. I was consistently sad each day and felt utterly alone since I couldn't speak the language and hardly understood. I also had trouble grasping how exactly I was supposed to magically learn how to understand and speak. The only way I understood was through translating all the words I knew in my head whenever I heard them. The 5th day I called my parents and asked to come home. Luckily I am so blessed to have parents that know what is good for me. I can not thank them enough for telling me they wouldn't let me come home. From the first month on I have steadily been understanding more and speaking more and I can't be happier. The second month was also fraught with hardship because I still had trouble understanding. Sure I could understand basic things like "let's go", "we are going to eat now", and stuff like that, but I couldn't have a conversation which is really hard when everyone wants to know about you. I would always get asked questions and not know how to answer. I really wanted to, but trying to explain difficult concepts in a language you hardly know is not easy to say the least. Never the less I made it work.
As you know, Mary Reiman completed her goal of riding a million miles for Polio Plus!! If you had made a pledge to support her ride, please go online to your Rotary direct account and enter it online. Then let Mary know that you did so she can cross you off her list.  Click on "more" for instructions.
