Group Study Exchange
A Rotary Foundation Program
Since 1965, the Group Study Exchange (GSE) program has provided inspiring vocational, educational, and cultural experiences for more than 70,000 men and women. This unique program targets young business and professional men and women between the ages of 25 & 40 in their initial years of professional life.
The Rotary Foundation provides travel grants for teams of participants to exchange visits between paired areas in different countries. For four to six weeks, team members study the host country’s institutions and ways of life, observe their own vocations as practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships, and exchange ideas.
Through the Avenue of Community Service, our club supports the efforts of the non-profit organization Colfax Community Network. Colfax Community Network advocates for and works on behalf of children and families residing in low-income, transient housing (primarily residential motels) along Colfax Avenue by providing information, services and programs to strengthen and improve family and community life. On the 4th Thursday of the month, CCN hosts a Family Night to help families living in Colfax motels feel connected to a caring community. Frequently, speakers are invited to talk about new programs and resources. Always, there are door prizes, games, good food and friendship. Through out the year AFRC supports the CCN's efforts by stocking the food pantry, providing personal hygiene products and sponsoring a Family Night.
Swearing in - Thank you for a great year Cindy and Good luck Margaret Ann!
We had the best time at the Fresh Fish Company on Havana changing the guard at the end of our 9th Rotary year and celebrating the accomplishments of our club with our Rotary family and special guests,
