Opportunities for assisting with RYLA camp abound. You probably saw Joan Barker’s email earlier this week. She still needs volunteers to help with delivery/pickup of T-shirts. Contact her if you are able to help out.


We sang along with Lacy J Dalton this morning to a song she wrote about the Four Way Test, ‘We Are Rotary’. Lacy is an honorary member of the Reno, NV, Rotary club and produced a CD with this song, ‘This Close’, a song about Polio Plus, and ten other songs. The CD is being sold as a fundraiser for the Reno, NV, club to benefit Polio Plus. If you’d like to purchase a copy, go to
