Highlights & Stories
RYLA began in 1994 and engages approximately 200 high school sophomores sponsored by 50 Rotary Clubs to come together for a weekend of challenging and enriching activities to cultivate fellowship and learn skills.  
This past weekend June 21-23, DG Elliot Rittenberg & Past DG Victor Tom attended and several Brookline Rotarians volunteered and taught at RYLA. A special thank you to Brookline Rotarian Jim Feldkamp who was instrumental in facilitating Brookline's sponsoring 4 students this year. 
Brookline Rotary's Joyce Graff becomes District 7910 Governor & Ken Goldstein becomes Club President for 2024 - 2025!
Post-It notes from attendees identifying the Magic of Rotary for them were later collected to be shared with Joyce.
Sharon Brockman shared this graphic of this year's success.  Several Rotarians volunteer with Brookline Thrives -- particular thanks to Phil Sandler who coordinates our once-a-month evening service and also acknowledgments to Jake and Laura Walters who have been steadfast shift leaders.  Laura further donated her Walk for Hunger funds to Brookline Thrives this Spring. Brookline Rotary is also pleased that Kim Kushner initiator of Brookline Thrives is now also a Rotary member. More than anything, we celebrate the dedicated work of all the Brookline Thrives volunteers and of Sharon's ongoing leadership!
District 7910 will be hosting a Friendship Exchange team from India. The District in India will host Rotarians back at a date in the future to be determined. The District is in the Golden Triangle area of India.
