The Wallingford Rotary was a proud group of Rotarians tonight as we hosted the inaugural induction ceremony for the Mill River Union High School Interact Club. This evening the “little red schoolhouse” was full to the brim with Interact students, parents, grandparents and Rotarians.
Our newly formed Interact Club inducted 49 members this evening led by its president, John Graves under the guidance of their teacher advisors, Debra Gardner-Baasch and Cindy Roberts.
When I became president of the club, it was my hope for my presidency to solidify the relationship that our rotary club had with Mill River students who were always ready and willing to lend a hand to our “small but mighty” club when we needed extra hands and help to make our community functions successful. You have seen them at the Lobsterfest, Wallingford’s Bicycle Safety Day and at Stone Meadow, just to name a few events. This evening, I am very proud that we can call them our own Interact Club.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening of food and fellowship. We even had a gigantic “happy birthday” to our Hungarian exchange student and Interact member, Eszti.
Congratulations to the officers, members and faculty directors of the Mill River Interact Club ~ we know you will do great things and spread much fellowship and good will throughout our community and the world.
