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.

Rotary AIDS day event turns spotlight on world’s deadliest infectious disease
The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst ever, has claimed several thousand lives and generated worldwide concern. But its impact pales in comparison to that of AIDS, which, despite advances in treatment, still kills more than a million people a year, the majority of them in Africa. "Even with the Ebola outbreak at its worst expected levels, it's never going to reach what we've seen with the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Dr. Timothy B. Erickson, director of the Center for Global Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, speaking at Rotary's World AIDS Day event in Evanston on 1...
Statement by Rotary International on the deadly school attack in Pakistan
Rotary International condemns the horrific attack that killed more than 130 schoolchildren and wounded over 100 of their classmates in Peshawar, Pakistan. We believe that children everywhere have the basic right to receive an education in an environment unthreatened by violence or fear. Rotary extends our heartfelt sympathy to all of the families in Pakistan, including those of seven Rotary members, who have lost children as a result of this unfathomable tragedy. We stand with them in mourning their loss. Gary C.K. Huang, PresidentRotary International
Indoor air pollution linked to millions of deaths
After decades dreaming about the Himalayas, Rotary member George Basch went on his first trek through the mountains in 2001, when he was 64. A member of the Rotary Club of Taos-Melagro in New Mexico, USA, Basch found that the experience was even more than he had hoped. "My expectations were high, and dramatically exceeded," he remembers. But a less-than-pleasant aspect of the experience was the indoor smoke pollution he encountered in the guest houses and private homes he visited. Many families in the Himalayas use rudimentary cookstoves or, in some cases, an open fire pit inside the home to...
Rotary staff members bond over Miles to End Polio bike ride
For six staff members from Rotary headquarters in Evanston, the fight to eradicate polio has become personal. Together, they biked the physically grueling 104-mile (167-kilometer) Tour de Tucson in Arizona, USA, collectively raising more than $20,000 for polio eradication while putting their bodies and minds through a feat of endurance. For the tightknit group, the experience was about more than just raising money and crossing the finish line. It was about learning about each other and what Rotary members are doing to rid the world of this crippling disease. They advocated together, trained...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
