               RYLA stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Academy – and we were pleased to have as our program the two who had been sponsored by our club to attend this past June.
               Skylar Peterson said her brothers had attended and they came back with such exciting reports that she was happy to learn that she was going to be able to attend.
               They did true colors testing, which helped them to determine their personality strengths.  She said she was green and gold which meant that she was smart and organized (she said, not always!).
               She was pleased with the challenge of learning to work with others; each group had to do a service project.  Their’s was to work with tutoring with the inner city students. They had two days to prepare and then give a presentation.
               She is presently involved with the Student Council and the Science Club at Kirksville High.
               Jack Tigner is a junior at Kirksville, plays trombone in the band.  
               He enjoyed the work of the film crew – individuals could go into the confessional booth and share whatever they wanted (usually something funny); the film crew would edit at the end of the day and make a presentation.  He really liked the fact that there were students from all over the state.
               His group’s service club was called TADAA – Teens Against Drug and Alcohol Abuse – one of the items they suggested was to plan a space for a YMCA like location that featured teens.
               He said the participants were exposed to Rotary during the larger sessions and it was the largest group that RYLA had hosted.
Karla Dwyer said it’s time for Hawkeye football, and she also put in for Troy’s family that suffered a house fire. Linette Page noted our guests; and our Rotary exchange student visiting us, and for Linda and helping with the workshop on Wednesday. Bob Schneider put in for Tom VanVleck whose wife passed away this week.  Sue Schneider noted Troy and others who were going through some challenges.  Janet Gremaud put in for Linda and her group; for safe travel for Jim Bergman and his group that were picking up books today in Bethany.  Linda Bowers put in for Linette and Janet helping with the workshop, and for Larry who doesn’t pick on her like Ernie!  Alie Fast said she was with her brother and his family from Florida last week, and this week her sister is coming in from California.  Pat Kurtzeman put in for Charlie, and for Tom’s wife who passed away as well.  Heather Condon gave her dollar for Dr. Tigner, who had been one of her teachers – she couldn’t remember what class, he reminded her it was for memory! And she also noted Troy’s family.  Amy Eagan put in for the athletic activities at Truman, for the volleyball team, men and women’s soccer team, etc.  Brita Hand said she wanted people to have safe travel this weekend. Marilyn Romine put in for Truman and Hawkeye football; and her mom is looking forward to seeing the Cubs in the World Series.  Ed Ross said he almost had a guest – didn’t show up!  Jim Wagner is excited they have family coming in this weekend.  Jon Peck put in for Kirksville sports, for Mark K and others.  Rick Steele was pleased with a very good program today.  Larry Burton put in for Troy and his family, for Be a buddy, and of course, the Cardinals.  Dale Watson said Ron and Debbie had visited this past week.  Steve Hansen put in for Mark – he’s in Vegas this week – must be doing better.  Wally Trosen said he was going to the Packers/Chiefs game this evening; and the other evening he and Ricci had gone out to eat with Steve and DeRaye for their 47th anniversary.  Terry Combs also put in for Troy – and Kudos to everyone for their support, rallying around one of our club members.  Bob Fredricks predicted a Packers win over the Chiefs this evening.  Zach Springer noted Troy’s house fire – it was a teachable moment for the children – always remember, don’t go back in if you have made it out safely – so what did Troy and Zach do?  They went back in the house to rescue the dog.  Also Zach is having a barbecue at his house at 5 pm on Saturday – come if you’d like – bring a dish to share!  Christine Steele had to leave early but she wanted to remember Tom Van Vleck’s wife.

Each year our club selects two individuals to receive the TOP TECH awards from our club – individuals who are students in the Vo-Tech who exemplify the good things that are seen in excellent students.
               This year Brie Anne Kite who is a senior in the Teaching Careers program received the award and the $500 scholarship from our club.
               Also receiving an award and scholarship was Dakota Parish in the Building Trades program.
               Brie, who was at the meeting with her mother, Angie, told us that she will start her education at MACC and then ultimately probably transfer to Buena Vista in Ottumwa to pursue her goal to become a teacher.
               Debbie Snyder who is Judy Duden’s daughter, told how her mother worked with Head Start, helped to start the infant-toddler center as the director.
               Because of the program, individuals who study in this area can achieve being a National Child Director Associate which opens job opportunities in many places.
               All of this was expanded to the Teaching Careers program, which offers college level classes in the area of teacher preparation.
               Debbie told us how Brie had been assigned to assist in Mrs. Quigley’s Kingergarten class. Mrs. Quigley was named “Teacher of the Year” and is retiring this year because of health problems.  Mrs. Quigley said that Brie carried her classroom in her absence, even when there was a substitute teacher there.
               She pointed out that the University of Missouri accepts only 18 students in such a program – but also noted that students finishing the program in the Tech Center would be qualified to enter that program.
Wally Trosen reminded us that Michelle Horvath is starring in “Plaza Suite” next week; and for the Spring concert on Monday evening.  Charles Baldwin told us that we need to keep our perspective right – and it’s not just a matter of keeping perfect attendance – he comes to our club because he wants to!  Dave Hurt said he was ready for the weather to dry up. Jane Hurt had nothing in particular to say – but she put her money in!  Elsie Gabe noted the Fireside Chat – enjoyed it; and for Michelle’s humor. Heather Condon put in for Sue and her work with Days4Girls. Larry Burton put in for the Cardinals and a great club. Michelle Horvath said she got to attend two great events this week – the ROTC commissioning, and the Monday evening concert. Rick Steele noted today’s program.  Martin Stitzer said he’s looking for us to dodge more thunderstorms.  Jon Peck said his daughter is leaving for several months on a missions trip to Guatemala, and for the Blues! Zach Springer said they met with Ranee Brayton, our newest prospective member. Mark Krueger said a happy belated Mother’s Day to everyone – he met Martin in the store buying flowers.  Bob Schneider said he and his wife are going to spend a week in a tree house in southern Missouri on the White River.  Alie Fast said that she had a great birthday; she enjoyed the cheese cake that Betsy had made; and the other day she was talking with a lady from Webster Groves, found out she had been Alie’s teacher in 3rd grade.  Shirley Baldwin said her auction is on May 21st, looking forward to it being over.  Linda Bowers was pleased to announce that her son was graduating from MU School of Nursing.  Linette Page found the 2nd snake in her house; and for the award winners. Matt Wilson put in for a good dry day.  Cindy Thompson said her garden is booming with all the rain.  Pat Kurtzeman showed us the beautiful quilt that is the quilting club’s raffle item – several commented they knew exactly where it would go in their home.  Sandra Williams was pleased to be at the ground breaking of the new Hampton Inn.  Jim Bergman gets to go to Kansas City this weekend, will take in a Royals game and will also get to golf in Kansas.  Sue Schneider announced that at their next meeting of Days 4 Girls they will finish assembling their first 100 kits! Congratulations.  Ed Ross said he enjoyed being a greeter this morning with Sue – forced him to get here early.  Christine Steele said she had trouble pulling up some Rotary information on the computer but got help.  Terry Combs put in for the Blues win last evening, and for the scholarship winners.  Scott Meredith noted a great day.  Bob Fredricks put in for the Cardinals win, for the Blues win and for the Monday evening concert.  Jim Wagner told Mark that he should plant the flowers in the ground, not just throw them there.  Steve Peterson was pleased to tell us that his wife is graduating with her nursing degree.  Wayne Blackman was excited about the Blues win.

Elsie was recognized with a Level 3 honor because of the individuals she has sponsored to be a part of our club!  Thanks!
          Karla Dwyer reminded us that she and Pat Murdock were the co-chairs of the Reverse Raffle and the club is going to have to pitch in and help – as it always has.
          She said that she had been discussing with Pat the pros and cons of previous raffles. Among the pros were: it’s a positive money maker, great fellowship working together, increase in ticket sale. We started out with 100 tickets the first year; last year we sold 145 and then raffled off 5 more at the event.  The food was good from Coltons (they have agreed to cater again this year).
          Among the cons were the facility – we have outgrown the Shrine Club – too crowded, noise level high, sound system was bad.
          We are moving to the Moose Lodge this year – a larger venue, they are being accommodating and working with us; the bar tenders will be better. Karla said we needed a stage bookkeeper and Dave volunteered to do it again this year.  
          Marilyn and Terri talked about the fact that the silent and live auction items account for about half of our profit.  Marilyn said they really need everything in place by the first meeting in April, so a list can be put together for the guests.  She has a number of baskets (see above) that can be used to put together packages – you can get a basket from her, or supply her with the items and she’ll put it together. SATURDAY, APRIL 16TH – THE DATE!
          Terry Combs told us that in the 3 years that we have done this we have netted around $37,000! It has continued to grow each year.
          Terri Jones put together a basked (tray, Lottery tickets, candle, etc. Jim Wagner auctioned it off for us – Thanks Terry Combs for purchasing it for $45!
          (see attached for list of items that have sold the best at previous auctions!)
