Some folks wonder why we live in Imperial County with its unpleasantness in the summer, economy and other negatives we hear about all too often. I now why I live here.
The local Rotary clubs annually sponsor selected high school junior students to participate in the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Conference at Idyllwild. This year the conference was March 23-25. Volunteers from each Rotary Club organize and select the students to participate. This is a commitment they make to their clubs. We expect this of Rotarians.
One of the most difficult problems we face with this project is transporting these students to and from the camp. Those of us involved with this part of the program have struggled to find a solution over the years. We have not had a good solution to the problem until this year. Larry Allen of Del Norte Chevrolet heard of our dilemma and donated the use of three vans to get the kids to camp and back.
