Walter introduced our RYLA students, Valerie, Tess, and Hope, plus Dylan, our Interact Club President.  

Dylan noted that the Interact Club sponsored one of the RYLA participants and he laid out their plans for 2012-13- lots of projects.

Valerie, Hope, and Tess thanked us for the experience.  They did not really know what to expect and found people to be really open and welcoming.  They spoke of their projects and how they learned some leadership skills.  They described fun, discussions, respect for all, confidence building, and how they all grew in many ways.
