The visitors were Caroline Dario, an architect; Fabio Benito Pozza, a marketing manager; Nalini Indira da Costa, English Institute Director and a Rotary member in Brazil; Marcelo Ferraz Arruda, Video Rentals business owner and Fernanda Valone Gorini, a dentist.

The group shared lunch with Rotary members at the Westchester Township Library Service Center and visited a number of Chesterton businesses, toured the downtowns of Chesterton and Porter, visited the Indiana Dunes State Park beach and walked the grounds of the Chellberg Farm of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

Business tour hosts were Steve Walker, dentist; Warren Canright, the Chesterton Tribune; Duneland Schools Superintendent Dr. Dirk Baer, Chesterton High School; Bob Gerometta, Gerometta and Kinel Architects and Sheldon Cohn, Griffin Marketing.

A dinner after the tours was hosted by Jim and Mary K. Jeselnick, with Pete and Kathy Brannen cooking.

Morning drivers for the group were Suzy Perkins and Barbara Mort. Afternoon drivers were Joyce Fleming and Ralph Caron.

The tour was organized through the Rotary International Group Study Exchange to promote international understanding.
