Did You Know? (Interact Club Pizza Taste-Off)

That the Gloucester High School Interact Club will be holding it’s fourth annual Pizza Taste-Off, on Wednesday, April 6th? The event will be held at the Cruiseport, Gloucester, from 5:30-7:30 PM.

Tickets are only $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children, five and under. Tickets are limited to 300 and will be available at the door. All proceeds from the Pizza Taste-Off will be donated to Relay for Life.

 

Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.  Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be single gender or mixed, large or small. They can draw from the student body of a single school or from two or more schools in the same community.

Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of

  • Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
  • Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
  • Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
  • Advancing international understanding and goodwill

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. Benefits of membership in an Interact club include the opportunity to network with other members both locally and internationally. Members also have opportunities to develop leadership skills, understand the importance of responsibility and promote international awareness. Other benefits include learning the importance of serving others, showing respect and developing personal integrity.

Gloucester High School’s Interact Club is a community service based organization under Rotary International. Through service, students help to better their community, as well as develop skills to be active members of the community.  I just learned that David Slade of Cricket Press is the Gloucester Rotary Interact Advisor for Gloucester High School’s Interact Club, and he wanted everyone to know about the Pizza Taste-Off, so come out, have some pizza, and support Gloucester High School Interact Club’s community service project to help Relay for Life.
