Guest Speaker Wednesday 8-27-14  -  Alesia Shute

 

 

Alesia Shute was born in Philadelphia  She thought about being a nurse, with her natural compassion for people, but her untimely illness at the age of 7 and subsequent six major surgeries, multiple minor surgeries, and long hospital stays made her rethink that career.

 

In between all of her surgeries, Alesia met her husband, Cliff, whom she has been married to for 25 years.

 

Alesia is the proud recipient of the “Good Neighbor Award” for her work on fundraising for a local playground, and she and her husband are active donors to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Pediatric AIDS research is their favorite cause

 

They have used their businesses to hold carnivals and auctions to help families with sick children to pay the bills. Alesia was the president of the Timmy’s Regatta Foundation for 10 years, and she and Cliff still donate to Ronald McDonald House in Camden, New Jersey, as well as to local charities that encourage neighborhood children to participate in sports. Overall, Alesia and Cliff have donated close to one million dollars.

 

We meet Wednesday mornings at 7:15 at the Medport Diner in Medford.  A buffet breakfast is available beginning at 7:00 am, guests and potential member are always welcome!

What is RYLA?

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary's leadership training program for young people. In District 7500 (Monmouth, Burlington & Ocean Counties, NJ) RYLA participants are always selected from high school students, usually from Sophomores and Juniors, but sometimes exceptional Freshmen are chosen, and on very rare occasions, high school Seniors have been sent.

RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth, and aims to

  • Demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth

  • Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders

  • Encourage leadership of youth by youth

  • Recognize publicly young people who are rendering service to their communities

District 7500 has been conducting RYLA programs since 1995 and has gained a reputation among Rotarians and educators around the country as one of the best RYLA programs in existance. 

There are two main reasons why our program is so exceptional:

First, we truly believe that this is a Youth Leadership program and trust that concept so much that most of our program is delivered and facilitated by our own RYLA graduates. Each year the very best and most enthusiastic RYLA participants try out for a spot on our staff team. Only the very best are selected and they tend to return year after year, getting better and better with each year's experience.

We firmly belive that nothing in the world is perfect; which is great! Because that means everything in the world can be improved. And every little aspect of everything. We spend many, many hours each year examining our program in minute detail, to find as many ways to improve it as we can. Every year we implement dozens - if not hundreds - of improvements to make our program better in myriad ways.

Meet Rotary’s new president
This excerpt from the July issue of The Rotarian magazine profiles the 2015-16 RI president. Before he gives a speech, K.R. Ravindran doesn’t like flowery, adulatory introductions. They make him uncomfortable. The 2015-16 Rotary president would rather keep a low profile and share the credit. If it were up to him, you probably wouldn’t even be reading this article. Negotiating Days of Tranquility during the Sri Lankan civil war so that health workers could administer drops of polio vaccine? Although it was on his desk that the agreement landed, he says, a lot of people worked to make that...

Early cancer detection is saving lives in Sri Lanka
More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.  In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound...
