The speaker at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 11th February was Past President Richard Bird, one of our own members.
Last year Richard, along with other Rotarians from Cumbria, took part in a Rotary Friendship Exchange to America and he gave an illustrated presentation describing their time there.
He was hosted by three American Rotarians from in and around the city of Rochester in New York State over a 12 day trip. They had many trips around the area as well as attending some of the host Rotary Clubs. Later this year it is planned to reciprocate with that a return visit to Cumbria of the Americans.
