In May 2011 eleven members of Oxford North, with partners, went on an exchange visit to to the Rotary Club of Simmern Hunsruck in Germany. For three days we stayed in members homes and were treated to excellent food, wine and entertainment. On Saturday we had an all day excursion to Frankfurt. On the return journey we stopped for the official dinner with speeches by both Presidents. A very enjoyable and worthwhile time was had by all.
After the official visit the members of Oxford North extended the holiday with a three day stay in Bad Mergentheim-Markelssheim.
I am indebted for a large number of images to Clubmeister Dr Thorsten Junkerman and to my brother-in-law David.
