Interact Club New and Improved

 

 

Posted on June 9, 2015 by

 

 
 

The Interact Club is restarting for the 2015-2016 school year after a year of inactivity. English teacher Marc Walter is going to be the new adviser of Interact Club. He invites existing members and new members for the upcoming school year. Meetings have already begun (started on 21 May 2015), but students are still able to join. New officers and new objectives are soon to be put in place.

The Interact club earned its name by putting together the two words International and Action: hence, “Inter-Act.” Members of this club are known as “interactors” and must be between the ages of 14-18. Depending on the community’s needs, this club engages in many different community service activities. The goal of Interact is to develop leaders who believe in service above self.

The Interact club is an international club, which has over 250,000 members and is active in over 120 countries worldwide. There are over 11,000 clubs all across the earth. The club was started in Florida in 1962, which makes Interact fifty-three years old as of this year. It was started to empower youth to make positive changes not only in their community but in other communities both nationally and internationally.

“This is a highly organized club which is supported by Rotary International. Having the support of such a distinguished and respected parent organization gives the Interact Club such unique opportunities for its members. These opportunities include college scholarships, exchange student programs, summer camps, and the ability to create a powerful network of friends,” Walter said.

Walter has decided to wipe the slate clean and start over from whatever the old Interact Club advisor, Mr. Sterner, left behind in the club. No fundraisers will be planned or conducted until the club returns in the fall for the 2015-2016 school year. However, the club will have new officers in place for the beginning of the school year who are eager to get active as soon as possible.

“I’m excited to see what the students decide to get involved with and watch them grow as leaders and citizens that are a force for positive change,” Walter said.

New members can expect to fellowship with other students from Fleetwood and students from neighboring schools, such as Oley, who have the same interest in helping out the community. They can expect to feel empowered to make a difference in their community, and they can expect to create a network of friends that will support them for the rest of their lives.

“Students should join Interact for all the reasons stated above,” Walter said.

Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
Health: Survival of the Fitbittest
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian In the seven days from 7 through 13 March, I took precisely 84,250 steps. This amounted to 39.85 miles. I also climbed 288 floors and burned 22,055 calories. I’m fairly certain that you, gentle readers, could not care less about those statistics. Unless, of course, you’re one of the millions of gentle readers who have joined America’s fitness self-surveillance movement by strapping a tracking device to your wrist. In which case, you are probably pretty darned impressed by my stats. I should therefore add a few crucial caveats. Caveat No. 1: That week...
John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
Cynthia Salim: Former Rotary Scholar makes clothing with a conscience
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian The way Cynthia Salim sees it, the fashion industry doesn't have much to offer a young, socially conscious woman like her when it comes to work clothes. "The fashion industry often does 'sexy' or 'fun' or 'hip,' and things that encourage frequent purchases," the 29-year-old says. "It's very rare that the design community will design something that will make a young woman look credible and influential as well as timeless." Add "and is ethically made" to that list, and it becomes a tall order that Salim became increasingly frustrated trying to fill when...
Member Interview: Susan Davis uses social entrepreneurship to fight poverty
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Susan Davis has devoted the past three decades to using social entrepreneurship and microfinance to address extreme poverty, particularly in Bangladesh. A Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarship in the early 1980s allowed her to study international relations at the University of Oxford. A decade ago, she co-founded BRAC USA (previously the Bangladesh Rehabilitation Assistance Committee) to help the world’s poor through self-empowerment. She is co-author, with journalist David Bornstein, of the book Social Entrepreneurship: What Everyone Needs to...
