Album Name: Friends Forever Return to Albums
Album Date: Oct 27, 2011
Description: Friends Forever is a joint project of Rotary and the YMCA that each year brings 10 teens from Northern Ireland -- both Protestants and Catholics -- together for several weeks in our area and teaches them that they have more in common than they think. Our Rotary Club has both sponsored and hosted the Irish teens for many years.
