This is the Rotary Club from Majadahonda, Madrid.
They were having a dinner for their Youth Exchange Students and to welcome the Rotary District Governor.
If you know someone in high school that wants to study abroad, tell them to check into the Rotary Exchange Program.
It's a great way to do it and you don't need to be previously involed with Rotary to apply (here's the exchange students).
During my speech, I thanked them all for giving me this
opportunity and got them ready for a little American Jazz.
Then I got to work. I played some Sinatra and mixed in some Spanish tunes
as well. They want me back when my Flamenco Repetoire is ready.
Afterwards we took some group photos with all the exchange students.
This is Paco Chapa, 2003- 2004 Rotary Governor for half of Spain (District 2200).
This is the Majadahonda Club President Carmen Baquero, we were happy to exchange our club flags.
This is Tobias Hoffmeister, a fellow Ambassadorial Scholar sent from a Rotary District in Germany.
We've been doing Rotaract together and have become good friends.
Me and Tobias with Tommaso Virdia, former Rotary District Governor.
He's really helped us a lot and given scholars many opportunities to get involved with Rotary.
Rotaract is still meeting and planning service activities, the club is coming together very nicely.
Look for more to come from the Madrid-Serrano Rotaract Club in the New Year.
(including a new website!)
