After I received my green Rotary blazer at the 2nd briefing weekend, it was then presented to me once again by my local Rotary club. The club president gave the presentation, and I was then asked to say a few words. I thanked the club immensely for sponsoring me, and spoke to them about my first host family, as well as my new school in Germany and how I expect to grow over the course of my year abroad. I even wore the Australian Akubra my club purchased for me to wear overseas throughout the presentation. My club president was also kind enough to give me another pin to add to my collection. It features 100 years of Rotary, from 1905-2005.
