RYLA Attendee Expresses Gratitude

From Eddie Batts, our RYLA committee chair:
Dear Parkville Rotary Club,
The Missouri RYLA Academy has been a life-changing experience for me! I’ve learned so much and completed more than I thought I would this week. Thank you so much for making this possible. 
One of my personal favorites was our team building exercises that I did with my group. We failed a great majority of them, but we did so laughing and smiling at each other the entire time. I had so much fun with my group! Despite the fact that we kept on getting everything wrong, no one got mad and we all just kept on having an amazing time. 
It would be a great to have an opportunity to thank your club personally. Please let me know when it would possible go visit one of your club meetings. 
Thank you again!
