It is with regret that we announce the passing of Bob Riessen on Dec. 13, 2019. Bob was a long-time member of this organization, and served as its Treasurer since 1997. Bob and his family were always ready to help, to host visitors, and to help promote the exchange. In the mid-90’s, Bob arranged to have Malcolm Miller, the Chartres Cathedral expert to visit our local schools. He started with this organization shortly thereafter. Families have fond memories in particular of the soccer trips he organized for Hanover students in 5th grade (CM2) and the many times he hosted Joigny chaperones in Hanover.
We extend our deepest sympathies to his family.
