RYLA 5495 – Teaching Our Young Leaders
                  SERVICE ABOVE SELF
It is that time of year again and the District 5495 RYLA Programs are moving forward, with RYLA Pinerock scheduled Jan 17-20, and RYLA Ponderosa scheduled to be April 2-5.    One of the key components of RYLA 5495 is providing high school students the opportunity to LEARN the concept of 
SERVICE ABOVE SELF by participating in a hands-on service project.   This will be the 7thyear that RYLA 5495 will be partnering with the Manzanita Outreach Program in Cottonwood to pack meals.  Last year the RYLA program packed 75,000 meals, and the year before just a tad under that, etc.  These are all meals that all remain and are distributed to communities in Arizona. For many of the students who attend RYLA, this is the first opportunity they have had to experience the beauty of SERVICE ABOVE SELF. We are teaching our young leaders to give back!!  In order to make this program grow over the past 7 years, RYLA has relied on the generous tax donationsof so many District members.  We appreciate your consideration in helping provide this ongoing opportunity to the 200 + students who attend your RYLA 5495 District Programs.  Below is the link set 
up directly to the Manzanita Outreach Program on behalf of RYLA Pinerock and RYLA Ponderosa for your consideration. 
Thank you.
