On Wednesday June 27th, the Holmen Area Rotary Club were privy to Holmen High School Student Anja Houghtaling's  draft of her origin's presentation. No, you are not having de ja vue. Anja is Zoe Houghtaling's sister. Anja will be traveling to Thailand to live with a host family for a year and Zoe heads to Brazil. Anja's stay will be in the mountainous Chiang Mai province in the northwest corner of the country. Both leave in August.  Mom Tracy said this about her sudden empty nest " First, I will have a major breakdown, then try and find out who I am again."  Anja's presentation includes information about herself, her family, activities and interests along with interesting local information. These presentations can be given in the host country to the local rotary club, school etc. when the student arrives. Anja has been boning up on the Thai language and customs so that she can converse with the locals. We wish Anja a safe and wonderful adventure!
