Rotary seeks four for exchange tour to Egypt

Rowan County’s Rotary Club members are seeking four people to take part in a group study exchange trip to Egypt from April 2 to May 5, 2009.
The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is sponsoring the program, which involves teams of young professionals from two countries exchanging visits. Team members experience the way of life, customs and vocational practices of another country while sharing information about their homeland.
The purpose of the program is to promote international understanding and goodwill. While in Egypt, team members will stay in Rotarians’ homes and have the opportunity to meet their professional counterparts. They also give presentations to Rotary clubs and other groups.
The Rotary Foundation pays for roundtrip airfare, and Rotary club members in Egypt provide meals, lodging and group travel. Team members pay for personal and incidental expenses.
People between 25 and 40 interested in applying should be employed full time in a business or profession. Applicants must live in or be employed in Rotary District 7680. The district encompasses 11 counties around Rowan. Applicants may not be related to any living Rotarian.
For an application, contact a Rotarian or John Martin at 704-872-1020 or e-mail mart2338@bellsouth.net.
Applications are due by Nov. 15.
Rotary is an organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service and help to build goodwill and peace through 31,000 Rotary clubs in more than 165 countries.
