2015-16 District Governor Marilyn Kaplan, accompanied by her husband, Rotarian Steve Kaplan, made her first official club visit at Cyril Rotary Club on Tuesday, July 14. Cyril is a small but mighty club. One innovative idea from the club is Movies in the Park, held earlier this summer--a fun event meant to offer an opportunity for community members to enjoy a movie without a long drive. President Doug Graham and his members are already thinking up the next out-of-the-box thing they can do--stay tuned!
 

 
The Rotaract club of East Central University (ECU) in Ada, Oklahoma was preparing to attend the district conference when they were notified that a major earthquake had struck Nepal where some of their members are from.  They reported the disaster at the conference and $2,500 was raised at the conference for disaster relief.  Since that time, the ECU Rotaract club has partnered with the Rotaract Club of Kathmandu, Nepal (D3292).  The students raised over $15,000 during the week before finals. A report was recently published recognizing the ECU Rotaract Club for their help in relief efforts.

The Rotary Youth Exchange Program does not happen without your club's support.  Recruiting OUTBOUND ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE STUDENTS should be a continuous process for district Rotary clubs.  Suggested recruitment sources are school langauge teachers, Interact, RYLA, church groups, news promotions and your own club or family contacts.

Rotary clubs are asked to recruit students from their communities well in advance of their exchange year. In order to obtain exchanges for long term outbound students ages 15 1/2 to 18 1/2 , the district interviews occur each November for the next school year.  Long Term Applications for the 2016-17 school year are due to the district no later than Oct 30th.

There are also some short term exchanges that occur during the summer.  One month of family to family visiting between and exchange student and a foreign host family with a student.  These exchanges are from ages 14-19.

Details about the Youth Exchange program are found in the left column of this page.  Under SITE PAGES, click on the ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE link.

If you would like to have a club program on Youth Exchange, or need posters to put up at schools, or need more information about the program itself. Please contact Jaci Williams at jacy.5770@gmail.com or Russ Davoren rdavo@cox.net
