Congratulations to all the RYLA Awardees!
CAMP RYLA 2010 is indeed different from the usual training seminars that were executed in the past. The CAMP RYLA 2010 that was held last March 5,6,7, -the participants were exposed to various community service projects in which they were tasked to accomplish starting from the planning stage up to execution stage. The "selected" 11 Awardees all with different individual profiles and backgrounds were tasked to bond together within a day, plan and execute community projects several hundreds of miles from Manila and to accomplish it in the same manner like any organized and existing Rotary Club would.
After 3 days of grueling and hectic schedule, its about time to acknowledge their effort as future leaders. I believe that after the Camping and Awarding ceremonies last March 13, 2010, all of them knew by heart the true essence of this year's RYLA Theme which is "THE FUTURE OF MOTHER NATURE LIES IN THE HANDS OF THE YOUTH".
Like any Rotary project, the undertaking would not have been a success, without the support of the following; my deepest gratitude first and foremost; to GOV. CONNIE BELTRAN for her trust, confidence and all out support to CAMP RYLA 2010; to our District Trainer, PDG ED TUMANGAN for providing the modules that were utilized during the leadership seminar; to SDG ERNEST YUYEK AND SDG RONNIE CO for the support, to the team building facilators, Rtn. Vivian Cabanero and the speakers, who have shared their time and knowledge in enriching the minds of the awardees and motivating them further to make a pro-active step towards enviromental care and protection; to the participating ROTARY CLUB PRESIDENTS who graciouly sponsored their respective awardees; to my dear Rotary Club, The Rotary club of Ramon Magsaysay headed by Visionary President Bhoi Carandang for all the support that you and our club members have given to the project and the last but the least, to all our awardees for their sacrifices and hard work to be the best that they can be in the name of public service and care for the mother earth.
