Sends GSE Team To

Home for Mother's Day!
After 4 weeks of running around the Finnish countryside,  the team has made it home to Pennsylvania in time for Mother's Day.  The final week in Joensuu was wonderful and we will have many memories and stories to share over the next few months. 
The trip home took many hours, but went on schedule and all our bags arrived with us in Philadelphia.  We were greeted at the airport by GSE district co-chairs,  Walt Lutz and Tom Kowalchick, who drove us back to our pick-up point in the district.  We shared many stories about our adventure on drive home.
