Our Rotary Club of Concord-Diablo was privileged to have Joe Shiozaki from Wakayama, Japan visit us for a week this summer. Joe was sponsored by the West Rotary Club in Wakayama, Japan.
Here are some great memories that we captured with Joe!
It literally took two villages from two different countries to make this a successful exchange. Thank you to the Koellermeier’s for opening up their home to Joe. Thank you to all the friends, family and fellow Rotarians for coming together and making this program a success. We are looking for to sending the Rotary Club of Concord – Diablo exchange student to Wakayama, Japan in 2019!
