The Wallingford Memorial Rotary Club is very proud of its Mill River Union High School Interact Club. Last evening, dozens of new members were inducted into the MRUHS Interact Club at their annual induction potluck dinner and ceremony held at the Little Red Schoolhouse. The Interact Club was also presented with its Silver Citation Award! Congratulations to the newly elected Board and the new members! Welcome! We are very proud of all you do to serve our community!
Many thanks to the many hands that helped to make our “Teach Napal Project fundraising dinner last Saturday at the Wallingford Rotary a big success!
As usual, our small but mighty club roared into action to serve more than 60 German Pork dinners and homemade apple desserts to our friends and neighbors on Saturday, January 26th at the Little Red Schoolhouse.
Our MRUHS Interact Club members were at the ready – helping our diners with beverages, clearing and re-setting tables and probably most importantly and very much appreciated by our guests, helping guests get in and out safely — offering a steady hand to help navigate the somewhat slippery sidewalks outside!
With the help of the Rotarians, Interact members and Rotary friends, and thanks to our great community without whom these dinners would not be such a success, we will be able to donate $500 to the Teach Napal Project, to assist with Napalese teacher education programs, furthering the Rotary motto of “service above self”.
Here are some lovely pictures of the evening, with photo credit to our special visiting guest and helper, Guenevere Crum.

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.

After a very successful Lobster festival on Sunday, the Wallingford Rotary kicked off its one evening meeting per month schedule last night. We enjoyed delicious food provided by the Wallingford Country Store, wonderful fellowship and had the chance to hear all about some of the plans that our new Mill River Union High School Interact Club has planned for the beginning of the school year.
If you are interested in hearing more about Wallingford Rotary, or the Mill River Union HS Interact Club, or just want to know how you can volunteer in our community, please join us on Monday evening, September 26th from 5:30-6:30 p.m. for our next evening meeting. We hope to see you there!
Here are some photos from last evening’s meeting.
