Morgan went on to tell us about some of the projects the WHS Interact Club has been up to this year. During the summer, they went to Walker Field to help hand out meals for the summer meal program. Members worked at a local soup kitchen including serving and cleaning up.  They rang bells at Shaw’s during the Christmas season for the Salvation Army. As we saw in a December Scribbler, they decorated a tree for the Festival of Trees with a Literacy theme.

At Congin School, they assisted with the Glow Dance, a fun event with lots of colors under blacklight. They created bags of creative materials given to each home room so students could create and write cards to Parkland students. They baked pies at Thanksgiving for the Westbrook Food Pantry and three members attended Rotary UN Day in New Year. Several members of Interact have participated in Big Brothers/Big Sisters throughout their high school years.
At the conclusion of the Interact presentation, Hal Thomas thanked Bruce for his support of RYLA over the years.  Bruce called RYLA a “life changing experience for our students”.  Westbrook Gorham Rotary is looking forward to supporting a record 10 students to RYLA this summer.
