What happened at the meeting of Monday, September 16, 2019
Our Exchange Student (Rasita) spoke about her prior couple of weeks. She is in her third week of school and finds our English is a bit different than what she learned. Imagine that, she will come here to teach us to speak our language correctly.
She told about her attendance at a Packer Pre-Season game with her host family and about a high school football game with friends she has made at school. Both were exciting for her despite the fact both games were lost by the home team.
Please remember to consider including her in any of your activities, to give her a flavor of life in the U.S. To make arrangements, please contact her host parents, Kevin or Angela LaCombe to make arrangements. Day trips and trips of several hours are acceptable. The LaCombe’s can be reached at

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!
If you recognize the flag below, right, it is the flag of Thailand. This is the home country of our exchange student for the 2019-2020 school year. Rasita, our exchange student, arrived last week and came to introduce herself at our meeting. She gave a brief presentation on her homeland and took questions from the club members. Bangkok has 8 million citizens while lil’ ol’ Green Bay has just over 100 thousand. Culture shock? Maybe. But let’s make sure she discovers what makes Green Bay special.
Rasita,or Smile, as she likes to be called, will be spending time with her first host family, the LaCombe’s before attending Preble High School. She is 16 and will be taking her SAT’s this year for use next year back in Thailand. Any education we can assist her with would be appreciated. She also indicates she plays the ukulele. Perhaps at a future meeting she will play for us.
If you wish to include Smile with you on a visit, travel, anything, please contact Mindie O’Neill. Mindie’s contact information is in DACdb.
