D1020 GSE team make headlines in Ohio

The D1020 GSE team visiting Ohio, were featured in local paper The Chronicle during ther stop in Elyria, Ohio. Led by PDG Andy Ireland and hosted by local Rotarians the team of young professionals are visiting their counterparts in the States to learn how their own professions, and people's lives, differ from those at home.

Elyria Rotarian George Costaras said the visit encourages peace and cultural exchange.

“To me this is internationalism. A big concept in Rotary is making friendship and peace one person at a time. Its big part of what Rotary is about,” he said. “This is our opportunity for our club, a small club, that doesn’t always know what to get involved in. As you can see from today, it just re-energizes us.”
