Greetings of Peace and Love to All!
 
Here is a picture as part of an Article in the Mid Hudson Times last wk taken at our Wrap Up Peace Bell Foundation/Rotary  Lunch Meeting in Fishkill, NY....
 
It pictures Doug receiving his UN Peace Award with 2 past DG and several people who have worked and helped with planting Peace Poles/Gardens these past 2 years and in 2016 they look to plant of 6-8 Poles in the Spring and several more in the Fall.  We hope we can take this message and need to discuss peace with the rest of the district, especially the Interact youth who will soon be in leadership positions.

Our Youth Exchange Team has some exciting news. Dozens of districts, including ours, are rolling out the YEX Scholarship Program. This major rebranding project means that your club, at minimal cost, will be in a position to award a life changing scholarship -- with a value estimated at well over $20,000 -- to one of your high school students to study overseas in 2016-2017. The YEX Scholarship, which covers room, board, tuition and a monthly stipend for one academic year, is actually paid for by our overseas partners (Rotary districts, Rotary clubs, Rotarians, schools and private donors). Having a student selected for the YEX Scholarship is a big deal for your local school officials, and it's a good way for your club to stand out in your community.

Each Outbound YEX Scholar requires a reciprocal Inbound student as part of the exchange. To make it easier to host, each Outbound Scholar is to recruit three host families for the Inbound student. The Outbound student's family pays a flat fee to cover airfare, insurance, visa, orientation and training, and the club contributes toward the Rotary blazer, pins, business cards, banners and administrative costs, as well as the monthly allowance and YEX weekends for the Inbound student. Your club benefits from a perceived value that is approximately ten times the actual club investment.

Above is a flyer to promote the YEX Scholarship at your local school, library and other public venues. It provides room to list your club liaison for inquiries. Further information and a club presentation can be requested from YEX Chair David Greenwood at greenwoodYEX@yahoo.com, 845.677.5767.
