GMG In Germany

Joey,

For your gallery of places your sticker has been — we’d be happy for you to post this photo of Theo and me showing off the GMG sticker in front of our small vacation house over the past holidays in Oppenheim am Rhein in the Rheinland-Pflaz state of Germany!

Cheers,

Chickity Check It- Cory Wrinn In Germany On Rockport Rotary Exchange Program

Hi Joey,

I thought some of your readers might be interested in following the travels and adventures of my son, Corey Wrinn, a junior at Rockport High School, who is an exchange student in Potsdam, Germany. (Some might know him from RHS JV basketball and baseball.)  He has been in Potsdam attending Leibniz-Gymnasium school (http://www.leibniz-gymnasium.de/de/home/index.html) since August and will return back to Cape Ann in June 2012. He’s put together a blog to chronicle his experience. His exchange program is run by the Rotary International Club, which has provided tremendous support for him and the other exchange students in that region.  They also organize side trips, which has given Corey the opportunity to explore some of the neighboring countries.

As you can imagine, taking science, math and Spanish classes in German can be quite challenging, but he has picked up the language very well and is able to speak and understand much better these days. I’ve attached his photo. The link to his blog is: http://meineabenteuerindeutschland.blogspot.com.
