Rotary International Exchange Students Visit Monmouth

We hosted a lovely young lady from Brazil this past weekend. Patricia Ottaiano was one of around 20 inbound exchange students who visited Monmouth to get a taste of midwestern family life. We had a lovely dinner with our student and then went to see "She Stoops to Conquer" by Oliver Goldsmith at Monmouth College. The show was delightful and made all the better because the director, Doug Rankin, dedicated the performance to me. I directed the piece in 1974 when Doug was in high school and he attributed that production to fostering some of his first interests in theatre. Ms. Ottaiano spent the night in our home and then rejoined her Rotary group at the YMCA for a day of touring that culminated in a hayride and a sleepover at the Y on Saturday night.
