Ludlow Rotary has participated in the International Youth Exchange Program for 20 years and the club is seeking a host family for this year's student, Mathias Philipsen from Denmark, for the winter season.
Mathias is a nice young man, who is a junior at Black River High School and was a member of the championship BRHS Boys Soccer team this fall.
The Club is seeking a family in the Ludlow, Mount Holly, Proctorsville or Plymouth area. A guest room for Mathias is needed and a caring, supportive family.
Ludlow Rotary pays a small stipend to the student and host family each month and covers the full cost of hot lunch and breakfasts at BRHS.
If you are interested, contact Sharon Bixby, the Clubs' Youth Exchange officer, during the day at 228-8823 or 228-4530 in the evenings.
Ludlow Rotary also has a district-wide ski weekend for approximately 40 exchange students from around the world the first weekend in March. The club is in need of host families that weekend, Thursday evening to Sunday noon. Anyone interested in that weekend please call the numbers above.
