Congratulations to Emily Boettger, Lauren Graf, and Julia Fravel for having completed the student exchange trip to Bytów, Poland, during July. Our young students felt right at home because their hosts were so welcoming and caring. And what fun they had with their new friends visiting the local sights, walking everywhere, staying out late, and eating their fill of pierogis, gołabki, kiełbasy – even the vegetables tasted good!
This is the Museum student exchange program at its best: opening the door to the history and culture of Poland in the company of good friends. The students expressed their appreciation for the efforts of all those who made the trip possible, Fr. Breza for establishing the program, Ms. Joanna Malek for organizing everything in Bytów, and Mayor Sylka for hosting the program.
