Pincher Creek Rotary Club had a variety of special guests at their regular Thursday luncheon meeting on Thursday, September 25. Three visitors from the Rotary Friendship Exchange from the Philippines came to Pincher Creek and area to share more about the Philippines, and to find out about Canada. Some of the places that they have, or plan to visit include Toronto, Calgary, Pincher Creek, Drumheller, Lethbridge and Vancouver.   Much of their trip is planned for vacationing, networking and learning, and the exchange of ideas.
