Today, Archana brought her son Aakash, a student at Ward Melville HS, as a guest because he wanted to report to our members on his recent RYLA experience. Aakash had a wonderful time at RYLA. He especially appreciated that all participants were kind, welcoming, non-judgemental, and tended to share common interests. He found that everyone on the adult and youth committee was helpful and would do anything to make first-timers comfortable. He enjoyed the activities that helped RYLArians get to know each other quickly and well, the speakers, who taught the youth how to overcome adversity and become better people, and the opportunity to learn leadership skills that will serve him from now on. He would like to build on his RYLA experience and hopes to become a facilitator next year.

During the Club Assembly, Deb discussed the Every Rotarian Every Year program and our part in it. More about that soon. Susan led a discussion re. the 2014 Raffle prizes beyond the 1st three monetary ones, and the members present agreed on what they should be. Tickets will be printed in the near future. We also agreed that we would like to offer additional prizes at the Past Presidents' Dinner on 9/18, and talked about the possibility of requesting donations from local businesses, friends, relatives, etc., for this purpose. Meanwhile, Susan continues to look into restaurants in the Village and surrounding area as possible venues for the above-mentioned Dinner/Raffle Drawing. We next discussed the club's weaknesses, ie., meager attendance and event participation, where it seems like only a small core group can be counted on to take part on a regular basis. Then we offered ideas on how to remedy the situation. This will be an ongoing conversation. We also spoke about the club's strengths, ie., the many scheduled activities, projects, and events that succeed, and the amicable relations/atmosphere at our meetings. Obviously, we'll want to build on our strengths. We will look into holding more social gatherings- perhaps having a family BBQ, gettogethers at the local vineyards, a club alumni event, etc. Deb passed out club business cards that we can use as invitations to friends/acquaintances to attend one of our luncheons. To be continued...
