"The RYLA experience really brought me out of my comfort zone," recalls Dondlinger, 25, of Waldoboro, in a news release. "I put a lot of energy into getting the most out of the weekend by continuing to mingle, participating in all activities, and volunteering to be the first to try something new in front of a group. This truly was an amazing experience for me, I would recommend it to anyone."
