Lucas is leaving Sunday, so give him a call or take home to coffee before he leaves (he's staying with Erin). He has been an outstanding ambassador for France, and a great addition to our club this year. Now we prepare for Elza Domene, our new youth exchange student from Brazil. Thanks to Bryan, Earl, and Joel for hosting this coming year.
