Guo Li and Li Xiaoqing, guest instructors who are working out of the University of Huizhou in China, spoke at the Sept. 27 Rotary Club meeting.
They are in Jamestown for the fall semester at Jamestown College. They have 17 students on campus learning Chinese and learning about China. They also have an evening class about China for the community. Both of these young women are teaching English as a second language.
The University of Huizhou is in the southern most part of China, about two hours away from Hong Kong. There are 16,000 students attending this university. It is a coastal city with a beach and a mountain on the north side.
Dr. Gary Watts introduced these women and explained their program. They are working with Dr. Kate Stevenson as part of the expanded studies with Jamestown College. Both have enjoyed their time in North Dakota so far. Their hope during the Thanksgiving holiday is to see other parts of the United States.
The Sept. 27 meeting was presided over by Doug Frohlich. Duane Dunn gave the invocation, Eric Monson and Bev Kennison provided music and Teresa Brecto collected "Happy Dollars" for Rotary projects. Gail Martin reminded members to turn in their Rotary rose tickets and they can still sell tickets up through Oct. 15 when they are picked up.
The guest was Al Wolf, Rotarian from Bismarck.
The program for today's Rotary meeting will be handled by Mike Smith and Blaine Bergstedt. Tom Eckstein will give the invocation. Tim Ottmar will lead the singing and Marty Richman is sergeant-at-arms.
