The selected group of students from area Davenport High Schools joined The Davenport Rotary Club over the past couple of weeks to be introduced to Rotary and how Rotary is involved in the community as a service organization.
We said Good Bye & Good Luck to this wonderful and talented group of Young Rotarians on November 21st at the Noon Meeting.
Thank you Junior Rotarians for joining us and we hope you enjoyed getting an introduction to Rotary and the service Rotary provides in communities all over the world.

These two talented young women shared how the week at RYLA camp changed, enhanced, and educated their lives.
Patt Englander, Davenport Rotarian, had the amazing opportunity to be a RYLA counselor. She also shared what the experience meant to her and encouraged others to get involved.
