President's Message


Dear  Club Members and Friends,
 It was great to have Samantha Buick (and her mother, Helen) with us last week, and to hear from Samantha about her Exchange year in Sweden. The audio-visual equipment let her down (nice to know that this doesn’t only happen to oldies), but it didn’t matter. Her lively presentation held our attention without that assistance. She included numerous highlights of her year, but was honest enough to include some low points as well, which we appreciated. She obviously made the most of her opportunity, and plans to go back in one way or another, perhaps to study. Samantha also answered our questions very well. In all, she reminded us afresh of the value of sending and receiving exchange students like her.
 It was also great to see Nadia again – welcome back, Nadia! And for those whom I told about a minor setback for Julie: when she saw the GP he was sure it wasn’t a heart problem, but a side effect of her thyroid medication, which can be dealt with.
Kind regards
Brian Powell
