50 Years of Rotary Exchange Experience
On January 15, our fellow RCFC member, Randy Kurtz, shared his experiences from some 50 years of interactions with Rotary Exchange Students.  To start, Randy compared the experience of himself and his family with that of his father-in-law who spent 83 of his 85 years in the bedroom community of Bernardsville, NJ.  In contrast, Randy and all three of his children have spent significant periods living in various countries around the world, some on exchange programs, others for various other reasons.
