Mount Horeb Rotary Meeting

Attending:  McNall, Bollig, Steinhauer, Kopras, Burns, Burns, Zalucha, Salerno, Pakkala, Helwig
Special Guest Carolina on Zoom from Chile, the Ogglesby's and Irv Steinhauer
Carolina made a slide show presentation about her experiences in Wisconsin.  The program was recorded by Shawn Bollig for anyone who might like to see it.
She began the show with pictures from her flight and her arrival in Wisconsin.  Fun times the first few days included visiting the Capitol, the Rotary Raffle, visiting parks, the Shoebox and Noah's Ark.  Her first day at school was very important and she attended orientation seminars and enjoyed a visit to Chicago.
Carolina had seen many American movies before she came here and she often referenced that she felt just like she was in a real movie.  Things were just as exciting as she had seen on the screen.  
She commented on the huge Thanksgiving noting that they don't have that in Chile.  The Holidays were very special and she especially loved the "Ugly Christmas Sweater" that she got from Heidi.
She showed photos of all of her Rotary Exchange Student friends at a winter orientation.  It was the last time that she would see them because of the quarantine.Another thing that she enjoyed was Easter at Heidi's where they decorated and hunted eggs... another new tradition for her.
for her final home, She returned to the Ogglesby's with social distancing.
At this point in Carolina's slide show, her parents knocked on her door and stepped in to say hi to us.  They said that they would like for us to come visit and that they were grateful that she had learned English so well.
She ended her slide show with pictures of her favorite Chilean foods that she couldn't wait to taste when she got home.
It was a pleasure for all of us to reconnect with our favorite Chilean student, Carolina.
