Paul Orschau's Family in Australia
 
Former Rotary Exchange Student Paul Orschau of Germany, appreciated Australia so much that he has spent the past 3 months in Australia performing a software programming internship at Custom Steel Frames. Paul headed back to Dubbo, Australia, in April to once again catch up with his Rotary Family and former school friends. Paul has again stayed with former Host Parents and friends. He also travelled to catch up with school friends that have since moved away from Dubbo.
 
Paul's family arrived in Dubbo and surprised the club by arriving at the conclusion of the weekly meeting with his family who had recently arrived into Australia (Paul's family pictured above with new President Nicole Shanks). Paul's family will spend a few days holidaying in Dubbo, and meeting the family's that Paul bonded with during his Rotary Exchange Student year. Paul's family will then spend a month enjoying the Australian tourist destinations with planned visits to Alice Springs, Uluru, and Queensland destinations such as Cairns and Airlie Beach.
As President Michael closed out his year as President of the Rotary Club of Dubbo West, he took a few moments at the clubs changeover dinner held on the 28th June 2017 to reflect on the year.
 
"It has been a privilege to be the club's president for the year 2016-17" he said. "It is the members that make the club and I believe we have the best members. When the year started, I had many different goals, not all was achieved, but a foundation was made to be built on in future years".
