JOIN THE CLUB FOR 12-18 YEAR OLDS WHO WISH TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
An Interact Club is for young people 12-18 years old. It’s members take action locally and internationally to help those in need. In the process of team working they discover the power of service above self, develop their leadership qualities and above all, have fun!
On Thursday 12th January the Club was proud to charter its very first Interact Club. The event took place at President Kennedy School and was attended by President Kevin and other club members. There were approximately 40 Interact members present as well as members of the teaching staff. A teacher, Brian Finlayson, gave a word of welcome and then President Kevin spoke. He spoke about Rotary's work at both local and international levels. He then read out a letter of welcome from RIBI President Eve Conway. He then presented the charter certificate to Brian who accepted on behalf of the Interacters.
The president then presented the interacters with their lapel badges and welcomed them to the world wide family of Rotary. The formalities concluded, the President then invited questions. There were several, the most memorable being after the Polio Plus campaign had been explained, 'What is Polio?'
Everyone present then tucked into the buffet that the club had provided. It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm not only of the children, but their teachers as well. It might have taken us 97 years, but it was a very successful launch.
