International Weekend

Each year since 1965 our club has hosted the Georgia Rotary Students during Spring Break from the colleges.  We house them, feed them, entertain them, and give them educational tours of the area.  We give them a chance to meet us as well as a chance to get acquainted with each other.  They attend our Rotary meeting, a dance we host for them, swim, and have a wonderful time, as do we.
The late Christine and Larabee Hand started the weekend in 1965.  At that time the international students had no place to go, nor transportation during Spring Break so our members would leave on Thursday in different directions to pick-up students, returning them Sunday.  Such was the dedication of past members.

This event is held annually, usually around the end of March.
