You are invited to become part of the Rotary District 6040 Friendship Exchange (RFE) with Rotarians in the Dominican Republic. This RFE will depart on February 1, 2013 and return on February 15, 2013. Couples are welcome so long as one is a Rotarian. Individual Rotarians are also welcome.

The Dominican Republic has beautiful beaches on the south shore and lush jungle and coffee plantations in the high mountains where also rare gems are mined. Average temperatures will be 68 low to 82 high. Why not escape Missouri's cold, snow and ice for two weeks in February? 

In the Dominican Republic you will stay free in the homes of Dominican Rotarians who also provide your meals, but, you pay for your own airline tickets (RT on Delta $650). Group tours of points of interest are arranged by local Rotarians. It is the VERY BEST way to travel and see a country and make lifelong friends.
The trip takes 6 ½ hours and arrives in Santo Domingo at 2:35 in the afternoon. With only two time zone changes the trip is less exhausting than travel to Europe or Asia.

Under Rotary's Future Vision direction, Rotary clubs and districts will be focused on sustainable humanitarian and literacy projects. We will meet with over 25 clubs at a one day conference where Dominican projects are on display. This RFE will serve a dual purpose of forming new friendships and possible humanitarian service.
