On February 12th, our club hosted it's annual Rotary Adventure Program student speaking challenge. Connor Williamson came first in the challenge and chose to go to the Ottawa Adventures in Citizenship Program taking place in May. Our second place winner was Rhys Sandner, however, he was unable to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program in Tacoma due to his conflicting trip to Nepal with Stellys' School. Kaylee Butler was then the successful candidate for our RYLA program taking place in March. Rhys and our 4th student speaker, Sarah Grunert both received a $100 cheque to assist with their future studies. Congratulations to all students as they did a fantastic job! Well done!
