Thank you to Bowhead Transport, Seattle,

On behalf of Haven House board of directors, staff and clients we thank Bowhead Transport in Seattle for their generous food donation while in port in Homer. Your generosity has filled our freezers and for this we thank you. We are so very lucky to have people in and out of our community to support us and help us carry out our mission. We can’t thank you enough.

Family grateful for Rotary Youth Exchange support

Our family would like to thank the Homer Kachemak Bay Rotary Club and Rotary District 5010 for their roles in sending our daughter Cassidy Wylde to Slovakia through the Rotary Long-Term Youth Exchange Program. A special thank you to the Rotarians and former Rotary Youth Exchange students who donated to Cassidy’s exchange simply because Rotary is such a great organization and they knew her experience would be amazing. This show of support definitely bolstered her confidence in preparation for such a long time away from her home and family.

We are especially grateful to friends, family and neighbors who donated to Cassidy’s exchange, both monetarily, and through their good will, kindness and support while she readied for departure and while she is away. Many thanks to you all; we love this community.

Cassidy is truly enjoying her exchange in Slovakia learning both Slovak and Hungarian languages, attending Slovak school and traveling to many countries in Europe. The Rotary in Slovakia and people in general there have been so welcoming and wonderful to her. We are so grateful for the good care and unique experiences these total strangers are providing to our daughter. She has only good things to report home including how hectic city life is in Europe compared to our way of Alaskan living. This is so exciting for her and a once in a lifetime experience that would not have happened without Rotary International.

Thank You!

Kim and David Wylde and family
