María Astillero, our resident Rotary International exchange student, formally presented our group with the official club banner from her home club located in Puerto de Alicante, Spain during our regular meeting on September 10th. The banner was gratefully received by Shannon Duncan, DRC President. María is attending Decorah High School during the current academic year under the guardianship of gracious host families Andy and Cristy Nimrod, Brian and Melissa Furman, and Kelly Reagan and Kelly Sorenson. She is active in school activities and has been a welcome presence at local Rotary gatherings.
We thank María for being such a wonderful ambassador for Rotary and for the many contributions and friendships she has gifted us with at this early stage of her tenure in Decorah!
