Students participating in the Rhinelander and Eagle River Rotary Club Youth Exchange gathered at the Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport Tuesday to greet two incoming foreign exchange students - one from Poland and one from Chile. They are, from left, Derrick Dreifuerst (to Japan), Felipe Meza (from Chile), Isabelle Johnson (to Chile), Brevin Persike (to Brazil), Bree Gartner (to Poland), Lexi Nelson (to Italy) and Agata Banach (from Poland). Meza will be staying in Rhinelander and Banach will be staying in Eagle River. As an added twist, Johnson will be staying with Meza's family in Chile. The two have been pen pals for many months before finally meeting at the airport.
