*In some projects we did not include the number of people served because the results would be skewed, e.g. city clean-ups and parades.  If these are included, the numbers are well over 50,000.  In other projects there were no people to count, e.g. the one project that provided services to puppies.

Tuesday, April 4, 2017, Tangipahoa Parish Fire District #1 was excited to pick up their latest addition from Gator Trax Boats in Springfield. Pictured (front) from left: Parish President Robby Miller, TPFD#1 Fire Chief Bruce Cutrer, Rotary District 6840 Governor Randy Feldman and Amite Rotarian Regina Wedig stand in front of TPFD#1’s new rescue boat. They were joined by several members of TPFD#1, the co-owners of Gator Trax Boats and several Rotarians. Parish Rotary Clubs contributed $17,500 toward the purchase. Tangilena Media/ Sara  Patrick.
 
It's time...A key piece of our District's Strategic Plan is to have more clubs engaged with Rotary Youth Exchange...if your club is interested in hosting a student next year, NOW IS THE TIME to make that commitment. Contact rye6840@gmail.com and we will provide you with the information you need. Things to think about: you need a school willing to host the student for a full academic year; you need at least 2 host families in your community to share the hosting responsibilities; you need 2 Rotarians to serve on the Youth Exchange Committee within your Club.
 
The RYE Committee is ready to come to your club and to provide all of the training and answer all questions. Students will arrive in August, 2017 and depart in July, 2018. The purpose of RYE is to Advance International Peace, Goodwill, and Understanding one community at a time. We do this by sharing our hearts and homes with teenagers from around the world.
