What a great way to spend early Sunday morning at New Jersey City University welcoming high school juniors from all over northern New Jersey to this week's RYLA camp. Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership training program for young people, run by local clubs - in this case the program is sponsored by the Rotary clubs in district 7490. Our Paramus Rotary Club sponsored 4 Paramus High School students. As co-chair of our RYLA committee it was a pleasure to be among those who interviewed so many great candidates. Only wish there was more room in camp so that we could have selected more. Attendees come back to us each year saying how their RYLA experience was "life changing". Let the fun begin!
There to welcome everyone and direct them to registration.
