ROTARY FRIENDSHIP EXCHANGE
Rotary Friendship Exchange is a program of Rotary International whereby Rotarians and their partners carry out reciprocal visits and are hosted by Rotarians in another district. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience another culture and to make friendships that may endure. There is no cost to Rotary International
We have arranged for an exchange with District 2400, which occupies a large portion of South-West Sweden. There are 59 clubs, over 3000 members whose average age is 61 years and about 20% of members are women. There are over one million people in the District which covers 3 counties. Main cities are Halmstad and Kristianstad.
The exchange will be in 2014. We intend hosting the Swedish team of 4-6 couples for about 2 weeks in February-March, with our outgoing team travelling to Sweden in August.
The committee is seeking offers to host our guests. Dates have not been finalized, but we will require host families in Christchurch, Blenheim, Nelson, the West Coast and Ashburton for 2 or 3 nights in each venue. We are also seeking expressions of interest from those wishing to be hosted in Sweden for about 2 weeks as part of their overseas program later in the year.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SIX PATHS TO HAPPINESS …………this week’s quote: ( The Second Path )
Feel Empathy - there is a survival value in being connected with fellow humans. Transcend your "differences", you need to FEEL connected – team up with others rather than " going it alone" ( ie: most likely one way is to attend your Rotary meet-ups, discard negativity !
