There were 18 foreign students, 14-to-17 years old, sponsored by the Cayce West Columbia Lions Club in West Columbia last week.
The students came from from Brazil, Germany, Belgium, Poland, England, Italy, Denmark, Mongolia,Tunisia, Israel, Canada, Norway, and Finland.
The group tours South Carolina for two weeks and they stay with Lions Club host families. The Lion’s Club feeds the students lunch at Riverbanks Zoo every year on the last day before they depart.
Chick-fil-A is a favorite the the students. The students tell Lions Club members about their home counties and they share their impressions of the United States.
