Last Week's Meeting

Buongiorno was the word of the day as Rotarians met Manuela D’Alessio, the club’s latest Rotary exchange student.
Her nickname is Manu (say Mah-NOO). Her family lives in Pompeii, which is famous for its ancient ruins. She is attending Cardinal Mooney High School as a junior. She plays basketball, and her father is a basketball coach. Her mother runs a clothing store, and her older brother attends college. At schools in Italy, it’s the teachers who change classrooms instead of the students, she observed, adding that she hoped not to be late in changing classes here. She is still discerning what to study in college.

Manuela received some welcoming gifts from the club, and cake was served to attendees on this special day.

Manu is staying with Deanna and Gregg Rossi and family until January and then will join Dave Stillwagon and family to finish the school year.  Rotarians are encouraged to invite Manuela to join them in activities to add to her experiences in the United States.
