Returning Home

Friday February 26th

            Today is bittersweet!  Bitter being that 15 of our SDARL group is calling an end to our Portugal, Spain trip.  And the others are staying for the extended trip of two days.

            It was truly an honor to travel with such a great group.  From the language barriers with the locals to the wide range of food and the abundance of wine, nothing held us back.  We all have taken away that both cultures are very polite and that they were interested in our passion…agriculture.  

            So now the sweet part of the trip, going home.  I know that for all of us getting to see our loved ones at home will be as rewarding as the trip itself.  I also look at how sweet that this experience could be if we implement some of the ideas that we saw and learned.  Again, I believe that nothing can hold Class 8 SDARL back. 

We will see you all hopefully April 2 and 3 for the banquet, auction and graduation party.
