Our butterfly and hummingbird gardens are close by while our Camrose Rotary Peace Path featuring trees planted to recognize Rotary Youth Exchange students going abroad (outbound) or being hosted by families here (inbound). The students spend close to a year in an immersive cultural experience usually hosted by three to four different families while attending school and being part of the local community.
Scores of young and old turned out to the Camrose Rotary Pavilion on the 15th from 1 to 4 pm to enjoy free food, games, fellowship and FUN. The weather was sunny and warm to add to the enjoyment.
