Deadline to apply: 10/15/2016.Apply via District 5580 web site’s home page link: “Friendship Exchange”.

Participants will pay for:
Air fare/travel insurance
Meals eating out (although hosts may offer to pay-don’t expect it)
Admission to events (although hosts may offer to pay-don’t expect it)
Souvenirs
Pre or post-exchange visit personal travel (if people wish to extend their stay in the area, etc.).
 
Expenses that are covered by the the Rotary District/Rotarians:
