Speaking at the Binghamton Rotary

I was recently invited to speak to the Binghamton Rotary Breakfast Meeting, Wednesday April 16th. Rotary holds a special place in my heart. My older sister was a Rotary exchange student to the Netherlands. When I was 16, I traveled to the Netherlands to visit her and her host family. We also had a Dutch exchange student come to live with us in our home in Ithaca, NY. Because of Rotary, my family was able to learn so much about the customs, culture, food and history of the Netherlands. I am happy and grateful to speak to Rotary, since I feel I have gained so much cultural enrichment because of their organization.
