New Year of RYLA for 2020

With a new year comes a new opportunity for this years' freshmen students to consider one of our hallmark teen leadership programs, RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award)
 
District 5390, which encompasses all clubs in Montana, hosts its annual RYLA camp June 28 - July 2 at Luccock Park in the Paradise Valley near Pine Creek  Local Rotary clubs can recommend and select dozens of students statewide to participate in workshops, interactive programming, training and hands-on activities to help them become better communicators and leaders, as the first stage in their development as future Interactors, Rotaractors and eventual Rotarians.
 
Applications are being accepted now through the spring, so if any club members know of a deserving freshmen in any of our local high schools, or are home schooled, reach out to Laura Kuntz (Youth Services chair).  Recruiting and selecting RYLA candidates is yet another example of a joint-venture being implemented between members of both our Bozeman Noon and Bozeman Sunrise Rotary members.

Meet our Honorary Members

For ACTIVE members new to Sunrise Rotary, we wanted to educate you on what distinguishes an active member like yourself from a members whose status is called HONORARY. 
 
What is an honorary member, who are they, and how did they get to be Honorary in our club?
 
From Rotary International's membership definition 
"Honorary membership is used to recognize people who have distinguished themselves by meritorious service and embody Rotary ideals, or those considered friends of Rotary for their support of Rotary's causes. They are exempt from paying RI dues, have no vote in Rotary matters, are not eligible to hold any club office, and are not included in a club's membership numbers."  Any club member can propose an Honorary member, but granting this request is a board decision/vote.
 
An ACTIVE member pays dues, is expected to participate in club functions and attend weekly breakfast meetings, and does have a vote in club business.
 
Our club currently has 7 honorary members, all of whom were, at one time, active members serving the club in service. Here they are and their backgrounds.
