On July 17, Kegan’s mother writes on Facebook, “Wow. My boy just arrived in Rome after travelling from yesterday. He hasn’t even been to his Italian home yet, and this is what he gets to see. Lucky boy.

The Rotary Club of Sussex is so pleased that they can offer these exciting and life-changing experiences to youth thanks to the support of the Sussex and surrounding areas in our fundraising efforts.
