Yesterday evening, club members from the Rotary Clubs of Rohnert Park-Cotati and Rancho Cotati said farewell to our Swedish Exchange Student
Ebba returns to Sweden on July 12, having spend a rich and rewarding exchange year as a temporary Rohnert Park-Cotati resident.  She participated in all of the district events including a whitewater rafting trip on the Trinity River, zip lining through the redwoods in Occidental, and trips to San Francisco and Sacramento.  She was also able to take advantage of a multi-district youth exchange trip to Hawaii, as well as the "Western Safari" which took them through 3 states to see Disneyland, Universal Studios, San Diego, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Yosemite.
