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.

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country.

Partners build community center and health clinic in impoverished Mexico neighborhood
Four years ago, Rotary member Moonyeen King decided to take action to help residents of the impoverished neighborhood of Tepehua, located in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, who faced daily struggles with crime, malnutrition, and limited access to health care. King, together with Susan Netherton and Gin Pelzl, fellow members of the Rotary Club of Ajijic, turned an abandoned building into the Tepehua Community Center. For its first year, the center provided a soup kitchen every Friday to feed over 200 women and children. That enabled King and her fellow Rotary members to gain the trust of the...
