Camp RYLA ice cream extravaganza
Submitted By Frank De Smidt
This years' camp RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) was held Mid-June at Camp Campbell in the Santa Cruz Mountains with a BBQ dinner served on Thursday, June 21, featuring Tri-Tip beef, grilled chicken, chili, salad, corn cobs, and garlic bread, plus ice cream. About a dozen Milpitas Rotarians and friends were on hand to serve 50 gallons of ice cream in 10 different flavors with all the toppings to around 225 area high school juniors and seniors, some of whom are Rotary Interact officers and members plus Rotary officials, volunteers, and RYLA staff.
