RYLA 2010-2011: Message from New Generations Committee Chair PDG Peter Wong

PDG Peter Wong at RYLA 2010-2011

Dear Fellow Rotarians and RYLArians,

I am extremely happy to see you here at the RYLA Camp 2010-2011. I am sure that after going through the selection process and the orientation program, you should have a fair understanding of what “Rotary Youth Leadership Awards” is all about.

This award program is very close to my heart for very good reasons. Most importantly because I believe you are the “future of the world” and you are the makers and shakers of our future communities. Secondly according to my observation in the interactive sharing sessions in the past, I trust you all have great visions and do possess the quality and commitment to be great leaders. Please remember the future of our communities is in your hands.

Rotary International and District 3450 place tremendous emphasis on our “New Generations” and RYLA is one of our most outstanding programs in that pursuit. Rotary believes in world peace and sustainable growth in communities to ensure every global citizen has a better place to live in and to enjoy life to its fullest.

Please endure all challenges provided in the program to help build your confidence, enjoy the aspirations of the speaker sessions and make the most from the camp life with your fellow participants, trainers and supervisors. I sincerely hope that everyone will be able to find what he/she wants and achieves what he/she wants to achieve by the close of the camp.

It is our wish that after graduation, all of you will be able to fulfill this year’s theme to “build the future and bridge the culture” of the communities of the world.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year of the Rabbit.

Yours in Rotary,
PDG Peter Wong
New Generations Committee Chair 2010-2011
