Rotary connections last a lifetime

Dear Editor:

In your Saturday issue of The Aspen Times, a picture of Rotary scholars to be hosted in western Colorado reminded me of the benefits Rotary International provides for our youth.

Both Gary and K.T. were selected to be Rotary Exchange students, Gary going to Austria and K.T. to Italy. We also hosted French and Italian Rotary exchange students in our homes.

Lifelong benefits come from Rotary connections. K.T. is in weekly contact with her Rotary host family in Italy, and Gary attended the wedding of our French Rotary exchange student in Carcassonne this past weekend.

Please support the Rotary’s Ducky Derby for the continuing opportunities for our youth to help further world peace and friendship.

Tom Sharkey
