Rotary Youth Service: Franka Simkova, exchange student
Exchange student Franka Simkova from Slovakia. Kate Brown, Newport Rotary member and owner of La Maison Restaurant, baked five cakes for a fundraiser to help fund Franka Simkova's, our exchange student's, year end trip. Tables bid to have first choice of Triple Chocolate, Lemon Curd Coconut, Applesauce, Carrot or Sunshine (mandarin orange). Yum! We raised $1190.00 to help fund Franka Simkova's trip. Franka gets to eat her cake and have a great trip, too. Rotary rocks!
