Representatives from the CHS Interact Club presented Halloween goody bags to the White Oak Senior Living Center of Waxhaw on October 30. Club members as well as the Waxhaw Weddington Rotary Club donated items such as notepads, pens, puzzle books, hand sanitizer and tissues to go in the bags. They were accepted by Ms. Heather Mull, the center’s Director of Life Enrichment.
This was the club’s first service project held during the school year, but they sponsored a food drive in July at Sweet Repeats who is is affiliated with Waxhaw’s Ray of Hope Church.
The Interact Club is sponsored by the Rotary Club. Its mission is to bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of “Service Above Self.”
The co-presidents of this year’s club are Nikita and Valeri Umesh, the Vice President is Aidan Nasta, the Secretary is Meghana Sathi, the Treasurer is Rheaa Anand, and the Event Planner is Anya Tyree. The club adviser is Ms. Paula Tautfest.
The club is currently partnering with the Waxhaw-Weddington Rotary Club in promoting their annual wreath sale underway now. Wreaths are offered in sizes different sizes: 12", 22", 30" and 60”! For every wreath sold at CHS, our Interact Club receives a profit for their service projects. Click here for an order form.
Order forms may be returned to CHS and directed to adviser Ms. Tautfest. Checks may be made out to Waxhaw-Weddington Rotary. The last day to order will be November 18 and wreath pick-up will be on Saturday, November 28.
The club is looking forward to an amazing year!
