District Conference 2002 Daytona Beach, Florida - May 17-18, 2002
The annual District 6970 Conference was held in Daytona Beach in mid-May, and it provided an opportunity for our exchange students to get together, enjoy the beach (and the international lifeguard competition taking place there), meet some of the Rotarians, and show everyone the personal face of the Rotary Youth Exchange program.
In attendance were inbound students David Bollinger, Luis Ochoa, Rocio Pinto, Evelina Saviciute, and Xandi Zach, along with 2002-03 outbounds Tierney Elison and Shaina Moore. David, Xandi, and Rocio each spoke at the Conference plenary session on Saturday morning, and David then sat down at the piano to provide entertainment during the morning break. With very little practice, the group nonetheless made a good attempt at singing "Love In Any Language", with David providing the accompaniment.
Special thanks to Daytona Beach Rotarian David Sacks and his neighbors and fellow Rotarians Lewis Heaster and Dan Lang for providing overnight accommodations in their homes, and especially to David and his family for the pool party and FOOD on Friday night.
