Service club in high school looking for members

The Burlington High School Interact Club is recruiting new members for the coming year. The group is one of 10,700 Interact clubs with nearly 200,000 members sponsored worldwide by local Rotary clubs. Open to young people 12 to 18, the clubs undertake a variety of service projects. The High School Interact Club, which is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Burlington, began with 20 members nine years ago and last year had more than 100. Its activities include participating in a Buddy Walk to raise awareness about Down syndrome; collecting socks and making holiday cards for veterans; designing and creating a haunted house for the town’s Halloween Spooktacular; and assisting with the Rotary Club of Burlington’s annual Valentine Day’s dinner for local seniors. At Easter, the students purchase supplies and make Easter baskets for children at the Burlington Community Food Pantry. The group also holds fund-raising events, has pizza and ice cream parties, and hosts guest speakers.
