RYLA in District 5060

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership development program run by Rotary. While participants can be any age, most events focus on secondary school students, university students, or young professionals. RYLA events are typically 3–10 days long and include presentations, activities, and workshops that cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Leadership fundamentals and ethics
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving and conflict management
  • Community and global citizenship


Follow RYLA on  to learn about inspirational events happening around the globe.

RYLA participants are nominated/funded by their local Rotary clubs. To learn more about a RYLA event in our District, see the RYLA-5060 web site.

Some time ago, the Club decided that we would try to hold our membership in the realm of 100. It could be said that we have 100 of the most influential and connected people in our community. Then again...
Generally we have been successful at the 100 level and our membership numbers have not varied greatly. There is a small number though that do churn and it allows us to take on new members a couple times a year.
The notion of a 100 member club was once again considered at the board level and we have confirmed at that level to stay the course. It is a manageable number of people and 100 is the limit for most venues to hold a meeting in this city.
Our goal going forward is to concentrate on attracting quality members to our group. If you are considering a new member proposal, you may want to have an open conversation with the person you will be proposing.
  • The proposed member should know that the time and effort commitment is not insignificant.
  • The proposed member should know that the financial commitment expected from members is not insignificant.
The Membership Director will discuss these two items with the proposed member to get a feel for their commitment. Your particular experience, though, can speak volumes to the proposed member. Our club is only as strong as the members we want to join us.
If you have any concerns or questions, feel free to speak with Kym Behrns or myself.

While Mackie waits for the Finnish days to get longer, she continues to blog about her adventures.
I know she would love to hear from anyone from the club!

This is the team that makes sure the room is set up with all the important stuff to run our meetings. Once the meeting is over, they are the ones that put the stuff away again. Watch out, they are also looking for the most innovative way to fine you also, so be on your guard.

These folks also look after guests and do the Happy Bucks.


Did you know that your Newsletter email is tailored to you, showing at the bottom, your commitments to Events and Committees?

Do you have the Clubrunner App on your phone, that allows you to access the Club members contact lists and call/email with just one touch?


On our Webpage we have a NEW link to email the Club Secretary your Make-up information. Look on the left side under Club Links... report your visits to other clubs, attendance at work projects and events.. and keep both YOUR attendance up, and the Club's attendance record up as well!


We use our website to communicate new Events and Announcements to the membership.

You can reduce how many you receive by replying to the Events, or using your Password, you can login and select Attend/Decline. Either way will keep you from getting any more "Invitations" to that Event. The system knows who has responded and only Invites those who we have no response from.

If you need a new password, just ask! (reply)

The Events tool allows us to ensure we have enough volunteers or attendees when we commit to help somewhere, or plan a get together.
