Training and registration deadlines

Here’s a message from Fred Wright of the Rotary Club of Wellesley regarding the 2017 Rotary Youth Leadership Conference, which will take place this June 23 through 25 at Fitchburg University in Fitchburg:
“Wellesley Rotary is sponsoring two students to attend this year's RYLA Conference. This is a weekend event with students from other District 7910 clubs, and is designed to develop leadership potential and to give students a fun and rewarding experience.
“Students must be current high school sophomores in order to attend. To download the event flyer in PDF format, click here. To learn more about RYLA, click here.
