Rotary District 5450 Governor + RYLA Presentation
Join us for our weekly lunch meeting Tuesdays in Breckenridge. Fatty's Pizzeria (106 South Ridge Street) 11:45am lunch, 12-1pm MT meeting.
We will start our meeting this week with a short presentation from some young participants from the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA).  They will speak to us about their experience this year.

The entire focus of RYLA is to provide foundational leadership skills for teenagers. It has been said that leadership cannot be taught, but it must be learned. At RYLA there are opportunities to learn leadership skills through experiential activities, incredible speakers, small group discussions, large group presentations, and in building life-long friendships.
