The 2017 Student delegation concludes.
At zero dark thirty Thursday morning March 30, with sad and teary eyes we said a fond farewell to our dearest new friends from Rubtsovsk, Russia. The two and half weeks went by so fast and yet such strong personal bonds and memories have been formed. So now we reflect back on the special time we had together and dream of meeting again sometime in the future.
The delegates’ time here was filled with amazing events ranging from trips to the pacific coast, the redwoods, Crater Lake and Mills Falls, three days at both Hidden Valley and Grants Pass high schools, TV studio tour, city council, fire and police station, hike up Table Rock, Wildlife Images, parties, shopping, and special private time with host families. Below are some of our favorite pictures and highlights of their visit.
