Alice, our exchange student from Belgium, has already begun to leave her footprints in the vast, snow-covered terrains of Canada. Last Monday, she buckled her snowshoes, adjusted her skis, and set out to conquer the frosty challenges of our beloved winter. Her companions, Lauren, Ashley, and Alexis, guided her through the powdery paths.

The Rotary Club of Halifax Harbour's exchange program is designed to be more than just a cultural immersion—it's a gateway to life-changing experiences. As Alice carves memories into the white canvas of our Canadian winters, we extend a heartfelt invitation to all club members: Help us map out a series of adventures that will enrich Alice's stay.

We seek your suggestions—whether it's sailing the south shore, hiking the Cabot Trail, or kayaking alongside the seals of the Halifax Harbour. If you have an idea that can transform into an adventure, we're all ears.

To put forward your ideas, simply reach out to the Youth Program committee members, including Alex Russell. When suggesting, consider inclusivity and safety, ensuring adventures are accessible and enjoyable for all.

In closing, let us remember that these experiences are more than just exhilarating escapades—they're opportunities for growth, understanding, and forging international friendships. Through your support, Alice's story will be one of adventure, community, and the warm embrace of the Rotary spirit.
