New club at dss all about service

Ladner Rotary Club helps launch Interact for high school students

In a ceremony at Delta Secondary last Wednesday, a new Rotary Interact club received its charter.

The president of the Rotary Club of Ladner, Ray Moschuk, presented the grade 9 to 12 students at DSS with the charter signed by the president of Rotary International, Sakuji Tanaka from Japan. Club president Carmen Kiltz accepted the charter.

Interact is Rotary International's service club for people ages 12 to 18.

Interact clubs are sponsored by Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.

The new Interact club of Delta Secondary plans a variety of fundraising projects and will soon select local and international projects to support.

Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through their efforts, club members develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs. Club members focus on the importance of developing leadership skills and personal integrity.

As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.
