Quote of the Week
"Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them." ~ Jack Canfield

RYLA Thank Yous!
In July we were treated to Emily Gollup's inspiring personal recounting of how life altering and special her week at RYLA was this summer. This week we received very heart warming letters from Chase Frey and Faith Robichaud thanking our Club for making RYLA possible for them. "What seemed like a year at camp, can never be measured...It has been an experience that will make colossal waves on my life...Words can not describe how greatful I am for this opportunity." "I can not emphasize enough how amazing of a thing you all have done form me and each other student...It is a life changing gift that I wouldn't give away for anything." All three students remind us of why we run our Fair booth and host our Adventures & Wine Auction!
