Fred Compton, the speaker from this week, shared with us stories of a Rotary Club meetings, including one for lunch at the Golden Lamb in 1939. In his studies, he found a Rotary check-in sheet from 1939- where club members enjoyed Chicken Noodle soup for .60 cents!
Interestingly enough, on todays Rotary lunch menu was- Chicken Noodle Soup!
Attached for your viewing pleasure is a photo copy of the 1939 Rotary Check-in sheet.

Lebanon High School students Kelsey and Charlie visited the Rotary Club of Lebanon, Ohio to share their stories from RYLA 2021. The Rotary Club of Lebanon, Ohio sponsors students each year to attend RYLA, the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.
RYLA is an intensive training program for youth ages 14-18. Talented young people attend a seminar, camp, and workshops.
The RYLA program enables young people to debate issues of professional responsibility and human relations, improve leadership and communication skills, learn about businesses and institutions, and meet Rotarians while having fun and making friends.
For young adults, RYLA provides the opportunity to refine skills and explore pertinent topics with their peers and elders. For Rotarians, RYLA offers the chance to help develop leaders, share valuable expertise, and bridge the gap between generations.
