Dave Soler along with Lyman from the Farmington Rotary Club introduced Matt, a student from the Rotary Youth Exchange
Notes from meeting:
Matt explained how he got involved, the process to become a youth exchange student, and shared his wonderful experiences.
Perhaps The Bristol Rotary Club would like to sponsor a student in the future.  Cost to our club: $1500, the student is given $100 per month+ invited to district conference
