Do you know of any outstanding high school students who could benefit from developing their leadership skills? If so, encourage them to apply for sponsorship by your Rotary Club for one of the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) retreats in Spring 2016 (March 10-13 and April 7-10). Student feedback on this experience is always outstanding. Take a look at this video to get a feel for RYLA. A program brochure and application packet can be downloaded with the links on the story page (click on headline above).
District 6440 Rotarians are working with other Rotarians around the U.S. and the world, health care agencies and the Guatemalan government to raise money for, and install, 29 digital x-ray machines in underserved areas of Guatemala -- where they can be used to improve the health of populations in need.
So far, we have installed 3 units, and funding has been secured and installation planning is underway for 5 additional units. Each unit costs approximately $75,000.
The Committee also nominated Bruce Baumberger as our Vice Governor for the Rotary year of 2016-2017.
Rotary Clubs please consider hosting an inbound student for the 2016-17 exchange year, it will be a very rewarding experience for your Club. The deadline for submitting the inbound commitment form is October 16, 2015.
