Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA)

Interact students who attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy reported on their experience.  It helped them get out of their comfort zone, encouraged them to broaden their horizons, and gave them new perspectives.  It also stressed the importance of remaining positive at all times.  They all said that is was an amazing experience; “everyone is so friendly and nice, and in four days you become a family with those in your group.”

Check Presentation

Angel Tree Camp - Calicinto USA

The Angel Tree Camp supports children who have a Mom or Dad in prison.  Rotary's $1,000 donation allows the camp to help four kids attend a five-day camp.  At the camp they participate in activities such as, horseback riding, archery, crafts, and swimming.   They also do ranch choirs.

Prisoners’ children are just like any other kid; they just want to have fun.   They come to camp with a lot of anxiety, it is a hard life for them.  They love camp, and always want to stay much longer.  Angel Tree Camp hopes the kids receive positive mentoring from this experience that they can then bring back to their family, school, and community.

Paul Harris Fellow

Tim Seifert was contemplating the name of a person to whom he could present a Paul Harris Fellow award.  He realized he was sitting across from this person.  He had mentored this person, and was pleased to present the award to Roberto Rodriguez, for the things he does for this community and our children.


Roberto Rodriguez bragged $20 and thanked everyone who came to the Boys and Girls Club Gala.  They raised over $233,000.

Jimmy Ventriglia, bragged $50 on being in Mexico last week … trying to improve relationships??  He had a birthday while there and enjoyed the week with wife, Roxanna. 

Gary Nemetz, welcomed fellow bike rider Peter Sterling back for a $30 brag.  He also bragged $50 on Joe Beaudet for his construction help.

Peter Sterling bragged $25, stating that it is nice to be on this side of the grass.

Mark Jackson bragged $50 on the club for setting a new record on Move-in - 65 minutes.  Thank you everyone who helped, about 20 people were  there, which is also a record.

Abel Maldonado

Sean Hawkins

Jim Small

Michelle Newman
