2023 DGE Sarasota HomeStay Program

Hosted by The Club of Sarasota Bay since 1974, the Rotary HomeStay Sarasota DGE Program is a hospitality program of fellowship and enjoyment for District Governors-Elects (DGE) and their Spouse/Partners timed with the International Assembly (IA.)

Limited to 15 – 20 DGEs and their partners, the Sarasota Bay Club, along with other area clubs, host DGEs from around the globe in their homes. To maintain diversity, only two  DGEs per country are  accepted, and the DGE and/or partner must speak English.

With the IA held in Orlando, the beautiful Central Florida Gulf Coast is an easy, less-than-three-hour drive. DGEs are treated to an array of events that showcase the natural, cultural, and other inspiring attributes of the stunning Gulf Coast; Siesta Key Beach was ranked the #1 beach in the U.S. by TripAdvisor!

This album series captures the nature walk at Oscar Scherer State Park, the Rotary Club Sarasota Bay meeting, a microforest planting, and the farewell dinner.
