Calistoga Rotary Club exchange student Olivia Morgan spent the 2009 school year in Finland. Ten years later, she and her mom, Lisa, took a 10-year anniversary trip to visit Olivia’s host family in Finland in 2019.
Lisa reports that Olivia now lives in Oakland, and she has taken up baking as a trade. She bakes artisan bread in big wood-fired ovens at an establishment in Oakland called Firebrand.
Rotarians remember the wonderful letters to the club that Olivia wrote while in Finland. She is a gifted writer, and it’s still a passion, her mother reported.
As part of the Rotary’s robust student exchange program, Lisa Morgan also served as a gracious Calistoga Rotary host mom for three incoming Rotary Exchange students including Ariane Dufrane from Belgium, in 2009; Sophie Szathmary from Hungary in 2010; and Margot Eyraud from France in 2012.
