We said goodbye to Marie Witzel, our IYE student, last Thursday. 
Marie talked about how much she enjoyed her time with our club, getting to travel to many places around New Zealand, and particularly thanked her host families for their support and hospitality. 
She highlighted the friends she had made, as well as the Rotary weekends away to places such as Taupō, Rotorua, and Waitomo.  A highlight was her South Island trip and she enjoyed many other experiences such as surfing, fishing, visiting our beaches, and the school ball.
Many thanks to Marie's host families - the Devoys, Leathams, and McCulloughs - and to LesleyAnn Thomas for her significant contribution in supporting Marie to ensure she had a great experience while she was with us.
We wish Marie all the very best and look forward to keeping in touch.
