Iowans Welcome The Friendship Force of Northern Illinois

Great Visit! New Friends!! Terrific Exchange!!!


By Bob Weissman

This exchange was my first as an exchange director. I think everything went very well. It appeared that everyone had a great time.

I had a super time. One of the reasons is that I was lucky to stay with two different hosts. When I arrived at the Seidl’s residence, I was given the opportunity to be with them all day Friday, Friday night, all day Saturday and Saturday night. I was told that there was another member of the club who had thought he would have an Ambassador.

However, that did not work out as planned. The Seidls ask me if I would like to spend Sunday and Sunday night with John Geigerich. John has a friend named Trish--also a member of the club--who accompanied us all day Sunday.

Not only were both my hosts super people, but I was privileged to visit Dubuque. This was a wonderful addition to my experience on the Mystery Exchange. The Dubuque Arboretum was special in that it has wonderful gardens and also had a band which played for at least 1,000 folks sitting on the lawn.

Being hosted by two different members has got to be the best!
