The North Coast Rotary Club has hosted a youth exchange from Japan for the 2015-2016 school year.  Nobu is returning to his home in Japan.  On his last day he said, “I’m not sure if I’m leaving home or returning home!”  Rotarians and friends met at Buffalo Wild Wings in Avon Lake to say “bon voyage”.
