Tuesday July 26 there is no regular luncheon meeting due to our annual picnic
The picnic is from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00.pm. at Harms Woods Grove #5 which is at the intersection of Harms and Old Orchard Rd. If you're driving west on Old Orchard Rd., when you get to Harms Rd. go straight into the parking lot (Grove #5), and look for the picnic area.
Join us for an afternoon of good food and great company. Food and soft drinks will be provided. May bring your own alcohol.
- To share with you the supportive, nurturing energy of the oldest rock and mineral sites through products, patterns, and prints designed by ancient Earth. Items we use everyday can enfold this energy into our lives.
- To join with you to protect and preserve Earth’s resources and ancient sites by creating new ways to live and work on our planet. Nature can teach us a great deal about how to build a company, a city, a country and make it life-sustaining.

RYLA taught me how we can work together to accomplish something amazing. I discovered things about myself and others in ways I never could have imagined.
The team building exercises were not only fun, but brought my group of strangers together. I learned so much about different types of leaders within a group and different ways to approach challenges while making sure everyone is involved and happy. Team building activities taught me to ask questions and think outside of the box.
Being in a group with strangers pushed me to interact with more participants and get to know almost everyone. The weekend I was there was one of the biggest groups they have had at the camp, over 300 teens, but I still got to know almost everyone. Many of my new RYLA friends have stayed connected with me through social media. My overall experience gave me the courage to be myself and taught me that with the right people and thoughts, I can achieve everything I set my mind to.
Another take away from RYLA is that leaders come in all shapes and sizes and sometimes the best way to lead is just to listen to someone else.
One thing I took out of the program was learning to be not only a leader, but a positive force in others' lives. I learned how just speaking to someone one time can make them feel good, and how being a role model for others can lead a whole group into positivity".
"Overall RYLA was a great experience for me!" Beth concluded.
