Tuesday Oct 19 - RYLA Participants Speak

The club was treated to a special meeting today as we heard from two of our RYLA participants, as well as from one of our Scholarship recipients.
Valerie Tingey and Colin Shakespear shared some of their experiences and feelings about RYLA and the training they received there. Both were glad they had attended, in spite of having to miss the annual Peach Days Celebration in Brigham City. There was much to be learned and each felt they came away better off for having attended.
Both are also involved in leadership positions in the Box Elder Interact Club.
We were also introduced to Mercedes O'Grady who was one of the scholarship recipients this last year.
Those who missed the meeting today missed a great opportuniry to hear from our youth that are very involved in the Rotary movement.

Tuesday Oct 12 - Rotary Constitution Park Cleanup

It was a beautiful day as we met as a club for our semi-annual park cleanup day. All Rotarianss in attendance were treated to a delicious box lunch and then made a "clean sweep" of the park, picking up litter and working to keep the park clean and looking good.
Rotary Constitution Park continues to be a very visible sign of the dedication of the Brigham City Rotary Club and we can each share in thee sense of pride that being involved here brings!

Tuesday Oct 5th - Dictionary Prep

Tuesday's meeting was dedicated to preparing the dictionaries for delivery to all third graders in the County. We had a good turnout and took care of placing Rotary Emblems and the Four Way Test in each of the dictionaries in short order.
A portion of the dictionaries were held aside and made abvailable to the Box Elder Interact Club to participate in preparation, also. They were excited to be a part of this great project.
Deliveries have begun and will continue over the next few weeks as we have the opportunity to give each thrid grader their own copy of a dictionary.
Thanks to everyone for their participation and support for this very valuable project.
Rotarians can and do make a difference!!
