A fun time was had by all at the annual Rotary Youth Exchange Valentine's Day Auction! Paul Harris Fellowships were also given out.
First, Don Snyder recognized two members who have contributed to Rotary by giving out Paul Harris Fellowships. The first was to long-standing member Sue Byron (1 Ruby) and the other to new member Nurlan Turdaliev. 
Next up: The Youth Exchange Auction. Put on by the Youth Exchange Committee, this event is one that our Club looks forward to every year, and this year was no exception. With Peter Hrastovec and Greg DeHetre as auctioneers, everyone had a great time biding on all different sorts of items; from a beautiful earring and necklace set created by Ring Weaver Studios to an oak wall clock, a lovely afghan crocheted by Janet Kelly to a waffle maker, a Montreal Canadians Hockey Sweater to sippy cups from Past President Lou Valente's President's Night - and everything in between - there was surely something for everyone's taste. And with all proceeds benefitting our Exchange Students and Host Families, why shop anywhere else?
The Youth Exchange Committee thanks everyone who came out to support this amazing initiative. It was a huge success.
