John Carragee (1953-2011)

Dear friends, John Carragee was a founder of the Language Exchange Club. He passed away on the 24th of October 2011. Those of you who knew him will remember his drive and the energy he gave us to run the club. John also developed the club in a dozen of other cities in Ukraine, Poland, Spain and other European countries. Thanks to him we are creating a growing community which is changing the lives of hundreds. Thank you John!
