Rotary youth exchange participants with Petra Harrelson, co-chair of the youth exchange program. In 1975 the Rotary Club of Tryon, under the leadership of James R. Black, began a youth exchange program with the Rotary Club of Pirmasens, Germany. Each year the two Rotary Club students spend time together with their host families in both Polk County and in Pirmasens, Germany. This year’s participants are Will Trakas and Ben Stockdale of Polk County High School, along with Niklas Burkhart and David Jenet of Pirmasens. The exchange is one of several youth programs sponsored by the local Rotary Club. (photo submitted by Bill Hillhouse)
