Alex shared his experiences from the prior week.  He also shared that he had an MRI on his injured knee and the diagnosis is a torn ACL which requires surgery.  His plan is to go home in January and have the surgery in Taiwan.  In the meantime he will remain with his current host family.   We are seeking activities for Alex during the time he is here.   Ideas are:
Invites to dinner (likes spicy) movie, playing video games, sporting events and day trips would be very welcomed.  If any one is traveling over winter break, Alex would be thrilled to be included even at his own expense.
Ed Anderson introduced Heather Sotelo, Executive Director of the GSDC.  Heather told us the GSDC evolved from the Sterling Industrial Commission that is still in existence.  one of the reasons for its formation is as a 501c3 which has no requirements to comply with the Open Meetings Act which helps to ensure privacy of discussions.  She also shared they are moving a warehouse on the former NWSW property to the meadowlands to be used as warehouse space for local business. Heather also updated up on other projects taking place in Sterling.  Very informative  - thank you Heather.
