Rotary District 6460
In the Heartland of America


Spring is coming soon, and so is the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) weekend at Beautiful Lake Williamson in Carlinville, IL on April 8 - April 10, 2016. The weekend begins at 5:00 PM on April 8th and ends promptly at 11:00 AM on April 10th. RYLA is Rotary's training program for young leaders, emphasizing leadership, citizenship and personal growth. These skills are reinforced with games, competitions and team-building activities to make this an enjoyable as well as enriching weekend for the participants.

The Bradley Rotaract Club and District 6460 Rotarian volunteers will provide everything to make this a successful weekend, with one exception. They need your club to sponsor outstanding high school sophomores from your area high school(s) to attend this event. The goal is to have two or more sophomores from each high school in District 6460 attend the RYLA weekend. Your club members can nominate students that they know, or you can contact your high school's guidance counselors to recommend students for the event. Future Interact club leaders will benefit greatly from this program.

An application form, club instruction sheet, and promotional piece are enclosed. You can also access these forms and more information about RYLA on the District website under "RYLA Website" on the left side of the home page (all forms listed below). Early registration applications must be received by Friday, March 18th with early registration fee of $225. Late Registration fee is $250.

We are excited about our new home at Beautiful Lake Williamson in Carlinville. The outdoor and indoor activities are endless!
