Girls Who Code at Seven Hills
Nancy Kemp was recognized last week by the girls in our Girls Who Code program for being one of them in her efforts to create a bat who actually flies on their web programs. The girls love our healthy snacks. The program is still early in the year. Please signup to serve as host and/or bring healthy snacks a week or more for Girls Who Code participants. If you haven’t done it before, Nancy has great instructions on what to serve. It is another incredible opportunity to become involved and participate with the youth in our community.
Rotary Youth Exchange Student Host Families needed
The Rotary Club of Grass Valley is seeking host families for their foreign exchange student this school year. Our student this year is a delightful young lady from Switzerland.
Host families are being sought for 3-4 months each, so that our student can experience life in the US with different families as part of this cultural exchange. It's a wonderful opportunity for your family to be a part this life changing experience.
Interested families are asked to contact Marcia Salter at 530-913-5908 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Rotary Youth Exchange Program is one of the largest student exchange groups, with connections in more than 100 countries and thousands of clubs reaching every continent.
