Rotary Club of Kirksville-Thousand Hills
29 August 2019

RYLA attendees from all three Kirksville clubs spoke to our club about their experience.  RYLA is the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards academy where hundreds of students from around the state attend a 4 day academy to learn more about Rotary, and service above self.  Students learned about themselves through personality test which indicated what their default personality tends to be in most situations.  The four main personalities are depicted by the colors blue, green, orange, yellow.  People that are blue tend to be compassionate, cooperative, and empathetic. Those that are green tend to be more analytical, intuitive and visionary.  Those that have orange as their primary personality color are prone to being energetic, spontaneous, and outgoing.  And yellow personality preferences have a preference for precision, organization, and punctuality.  The RYLA attendees also learned about the four way test, Rotary and its mission, and the types of things that Rotary members and clubs do in the community, nation, and world. The students were broken into groups and each groups had to develop and plan the logistical pieces of a service project that could be implemented in their communities, then brief their project to the other attendees and staff members at the end of the week.  The four attendees that the Kirksville clubs sent were very appreciative for the opportunity to attend and each of them stated that they had a great time, and learned a lot.

We are getting Rotary work T-Shirts made.  The shirts will be navy blue and have a large Rotary Wheel on the back.  They will be non-club specific, and the hope is we will all wear them as we go forth in the coming months with the work that needs to be conducted at the trailhead/natural playground, in conjunction with the collaborative, grant-funded project.  Cost is $10 for S-XL, $12 for a 2XL, and $13 for a 3XL. Let Jon P. know if you want a shirt and did not get the chance to sign up for one.
Courtney Bonnell is our clubs representative for the upcoming ROTARY and MIZZOU ALUMNI BLOO DRIVE.  See flyer below and if you have any questions ask Courtney.
Blessing Bowl: Jim Bergman - $5. In his 20s, Jim worked as a special care provider for a local family in the evenings. He taught himself to play guitar on one he bought for $125 from the family of the person he cared for. Years later Rhonda Vincent told him the guitar was worth thousands of dollars!
