The Club held a social function last week to farewell Rotary Peace Fellow Kate Kimmer.  Kate, from the USA, is studying in Japan, and has been in Canberra for 5 months working with the Salvation Army and state and federal agencies to help address people trafficking in Australia.  Her work is focusing on some of the policy aspects, particularly around the sex industry.  Kate has been a regular at club meetings and has impressed all with her enthusiasm for Rotary (having also been a Youth Exchange Program participant) but also for supporting club activities.  After a 10 day trip back home to spend time with her family, Kate will return to Japan to complete her studies.  The club wishes Kate all the best for her studies looks forward to hearing of her future endeavours.  Thanks to John and Judy McKenna for their hosting of Kate over the period.
