The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club was honored to host the Rotary District 6970 Youth Exchange Weekend on May 18-20, 2012.  The event gathered exchange students from countries around the world who were sponsored by clubs throughout the District.  During their visit to Amelia Island, they stayed with members of both the Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island Sunrise Rotary Clubs who acted as host families.  The kids enjoyed the beach, trips to downtown Fernandina Beach, two cookouts, an Amelia River cruise, Ft. Clinch and rounds of miniature golf at the Putt Putt Golf Course. The 17 young men and women, representing such countries as Spain, India, France, Belgium and Ecuador, will soon be returning to their homes abroad.
