Below is an email from our RYLA attendee (Sam Clark).  Another brilliant accolade for this event and a good reason why we should keep sending attendees each year.
Sam has offered to come and talk to the club about the event so can the appropriate board member who organises guest speaker slots please arrange this.
Gary has responded positively to Sam on the club's behalf.
Good Morning Gary
I would like to thank you and The Rotary Club of Papanui for sponsoring my attendance at RYLA 2021. RYLA was genuinely the greatest experience of my life.
From hearing motivational speakers to climbing the high ropes course at The Groynes, there was not a dull moment over the entire 5 day program. I met numerous incredible young leaders who, over the course of RYLA, grew to feel like one big 44 member family. The only downside of the course was that it had to come to an end. 
I would love to come in and talk to The Rotary Club of Papanui about my experience, if you have any space available in your schedule.
Once again, I cannot say thank you enough.
Yours sincerely
Sam Clark
