Polar Plunge on Leap Day!

"How can I help eradicate polio from the world?"

Funny you should ask.  In less than two weeks, Rotarians and friends from all over District 7930 will leap into the frosty waters off Gloucester-- all in the name of eradicating polio!

D7930 Youth Exchange Students
This year's Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) students were introduced at the Rotary District 7930 World Peace & Understanding dinner last week and participated in the PeaceJam activities of the evening.
World Peace and Understanding Dinner Inspires Acts of Peace
Last week's D7930 World Peace & Understanding Dinner was host to inspiring table discussions between RYLArians, Interactors, Youth Exchange students and Rotarians as they defined local community peace projects. These projects will be implemented between now and June 1st, 2020 as part of the District's commitment to create 10,000 acts of peace. These acts will also count towards PeaceJam's Billion Acts of Peace!
Woburn Students Return RYLA as Leaders
Woburn students Adam Ghili and Lauren Tramonte spoke at a recent Rotary Club of Woburn meeting and told of their experiences at last year's RYLA weekend. Both were empowered by the challenges of those few days at RYLA and came through as more confident individuals and leaders. Both will be returning in May to be leaders to the new RYLA students and families. Congratulations to both!
