It's time to get your team together for our next KC GAMES FOR GOOD! The games are even "funner," and we're anticipating a great turnout. Consider sponsoring a team to play, even if you're not a gamer. Mark your calendars for October 7, 2017, from Noon to 5 PM. Volunteers will be needed the night before, and Saturday morning, for event set up.
 
On July 28, Blaise Dauzvardis and Brooke Berkbuegler told of their adventures at MO RYLA 2017 - Session 1.
 
 
Here are some of the things RYLArians shared following their time at MO RYLA this year:
 
  • I learned a lot about current and future opportunities that are available…to help further my love and passion for volunteering.
  • I’m very excited to use my new knowledge to change the world for the better.
  • The experience that I have had at the 2017 RYLA Academy has been the greatest experience of my life.
  • One thing about RYLA that was impactful for me was how a group of strangers came together and created a (project) to change the world.
  • I never realized just how big I can dream and still make it come true.
  • RYLA…has broke my shy shell…and taught me how much communication, teamwork, and never giving up actually mean. (Many commented on how much RYLA helped overcome shyness.)
  • You have truly inspired me to work even harder to improve people’s lives, much like you (Rotarians) already have.
  • Going into RYLA, I wasn’t even sure what a Rotary club was.  Within the first hour, I knew I was exactly where I needed to be….Rotary is 100% an organization I stand for now.
As Suzanne, one of our organizers, shared with us, "In reading over the letters this year’s crop of RYLArians wrote to their clubs, I found some absolutely wonderful comments that shouted to be shared.  The following excerpts speak to the strength of our program, as well as to the idealism of youth. It takes so many of us to make this experience possible, but it definitely is worth every minute we spend."  Indeed!
