The 43rd Annual IRC Rotary Homestay just wrapped up! Seven incoming District Governor Elects (DGE’s) visited Vero Beach and Sebastian and stayed with Rotrarians, visited area restaurants, took an airboat ride, went to  museums and attractions.

The Sunrise Rotary Club threw a Florida BBQ at Bethel Creek house. The Sebastian Club had a workshop with the Sebastian HS Interact Club. The Rotary Oceanside Club threw a cocktail party at Walking Tree Brewery, and the Vero Beach Club hosted a luncheon at the VB Yacht Club where past DG Marcy Ullmon from Miami gave the keynote speech.

These visitors from Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands, The UK, South Africa and Brazil came on Saturday and left on Thursday on their way to San Diego for the International Assembly to learn how to be good Governors in their home districts.

Rotary International has 529 districts in 34 zones where there are 32,000 clubs of which we are only 5 in the county.

Rotary is an International organization and getting to know just alittle of what their clubs do and they as business people do and they learn about us and our club projects..It truly is a wonderful program.
