At our first regular meeting for 2020, we had two speakers who had just returned from the District 9455 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) which ran from the 12th – 18th January.
Yads Ellegala was a leader for the second year running, and being his usual bubbly self, Yads spoke with passion about how much RYLA has changed him each year he has gone, first as a participant and then as a leader.
Talissa Pratt who was our participant at RYLA 2020. Having initially been uncertain about what she was in for, as expected she LOVED her week at RYLA and found it to be an invaluable experience.
Also at the meeting was Shayani Galhenage, who we sponsored to attend the Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN).
