Greetings ... District 3850

To District Governor Oscar C. Nava, Jr. and the Rotarians in District 3850 of the Philippines, Lee and I send our wishes.

All of us in District 7710 had a great time entertaining your Group Study Exchange Team from mid-October through mid-November 1997. Their presentation during our District conference in New Bern, North Carolina was outstanding. Your team, led by Rotarian Jimmy San Augustin and composed of Gardenia De Erit, Zaida Fresnido, Sarita Hernandez, and "Nolly" Sodusta were highly qualified and very accepting to us Americans. We know you are proud of them.

We have selected an outstanding team to visit you in February 1998. Rotarian Leonore D. Tuck, the team leader, was born in the Philippines. She is excited about revisiting her homeland. You will enjoy meeting the team members: James Baudreau, Maria Rosales-Earnshaw, Jacqueline Kilgus, and Phil Marsosudiro. They are anxious to visit your beautiful islands and become acquainted with your divers and interesting people.

North Carolina Map

This area of North Carolina experiences broad variations in weather during our four seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter-but no extremes. Our stable climate enables a variety of crops to be grown and livestock raised in our rural areas.

Although the area within our district is significantly commercial, our smaller communities have been able to prosper as well. several international firms have relocated from other states to the rural areas of our district (and state).
