 Kentland Rotary Meeting August 22, 2011



The Club members were treated to an international experience on August 22 when Rotary Secretary Greg Hall shared his photos and experiences on a recent trip to France.  Greg and his wife Joyce visited historical sites at Epinal, Nancy, and Paris.  Greg and Joyce traveled to Paris via a high speed train and took a double deck bus tour of Paris, with stops to visit to Notre Dame, and the Eifel Tower.  Mr. Hall shared the beauty of the Eifel Tower and its twinkling light display at night.  Joyce took the opportunity to visit Nancy which is located about 240 miles East of Paris.  She enjoyed an exciting train ride and toured the historic sites of the area.


Greg attended the Rotary Club meeting of the Epinal Rotary Club  and was given a club banner to bring to the Kentland Club.  He will be sending a Kentland Rotary banner to the club in exchange.  Epinal has a population of 35,000 and is located on the Moselle River about 250 miles Southeast of Paris.
