Our illustrious exchange student from Turkey, Melike, gave her presentation to the club. She is heading back to Turkey on July 5th at 6:00 am (hint Get out there and see her off!). Now I am a mere newcomer to this club being a 17 year member, but I can't recall a more inspiring and motivating speech! She was amazing! We will be planting her tree soon and hopefully the tree will lure her back soon. What an fantastic young woman!
To quote her "She arrived in Penticton a year ago as a kid and she leaves a woman of the world!" Melike, Welike you...very much! Come back and see us soon!
