MAKING PLANS FOR EUROPE | Union City Rotary Club free European trip

MAKING PLANS FOR EUROPE — Discussing the details for the 2011 Union City Rotary Club free European trip for eight-10 members of the Class of 2012 from the three area high schools are (from left) David and Mary Hellen Johnson and Dr. Leland Davis. Mrs. Johnson, a teacher at Union City Middle School, and her husband have been selected as chaperones for the trip. Dr. Davis, a member of the Rotary Club, is co-chairman, with Rotarian Clay Woods, of the trip committee. Juniors at Union City High School, South Fulton High School and Obion County Central High School who are interested in applying to be considered for the trip must attend one of two orientation sessions, along with a parent or legal guardian, at Union City Civic Auditorium. The identical sessions will be Oct. 21 and Oct. 25 at 6:30 p.m. “We will be offering the sessions on two nights to try to give all interested juniors and their parents a chance to attend one of the meetings. This is the only place students can get an application for the tour and they will only receive one if they are present, along with a parent, to hear the information and get an accurate picture of the opportunities and responsibilities the students will have,” says Davis. The all-expense-paid trip is planned for June 28-July 10 and will include stops in London; Paris; Lucerne, Switzerland; Venice; and Rome. Students who submit applications after attending the session will also be expected to take part in an interview with members of Rotary Club’s trip committee selection team. Once that group announces the eight-10 students who will be making the trip, they will begin working with the Johnsons to prepare for the adventure with research and class sessions.
