Kinsley Kansas claims to be 1561 miles from New York and San Francisco
Two representatives of our district RITE (Rotary Intercountry Teacher Exchange and YEES (Youth Exchange Spanish English) visited this week. Representing RITE was Marissa Quiroz and YEES Edgar Quintero. Both are from David, Chiriqui, Republic of Panama.

Marissa was a 24 year old English Teacher who came to our district to study the methodology of teaching a foreign language. She was impressed with the Kansas teachers who had traveled to David last summer and she came to learn more. She spent three weeks in the Wichita area attending classes in the Wichita schools and Wichita State. She also was filled with the American cultural experience.

Edgar Quintero is a 17-year-old student who won a scholarship by the David Rotary Club to come to Kansas and improve his English skills and also get the cultural experience. Both Marissa and Edgar were a delight to know. Marissa was hosted by Rotarian Anita Graves and Linda and I hosted Edgar.

We were blessed or haunted by snow storms the whole week they were here. Our presentations at Larned High School and Fort Hays State University were canceled. Even the terrific museums in Pawnee County were closed. However, we were able to attend

Kinsley Rotary is my former Rotary Club and it was great to be back. It was pointed out to me that Kinsley Rotary had a one hundred percent attendance that night and that was a first in a long time. I thought Marissa and Edgar did a great job and they were well received.
