Ambridge Rotary held their monthly meeting Wednesday at the high school in order to meet each student.
The students shared stories on what they enjoyed about being in the Interact club and their post high school plans.
Interact is Rotary International’s service club for youth ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but the clubs are self-governing and self-supporting.
Brooke Chickness said she enjoyed working on all of the community service projects including Mr. Ambridge, a fundraiser for the Interact club.
Proceeds raised go toward building a bicycle for a disabled child.
Chickness said she is just realizing how her club is more than just high school, and that she is now connected to other clubs in a larger community.
Rotary members encourage the youth to stay active.
Rotarian Carol Milozewski suggested that they join a Rotaract club in college and if one is not available to join, simply start one.
Each student also had an opportunity to apply for the Rotary scholarship.
Interact will be hosting Springfest, a special needs carnival, on May 29 to continue their tradition of community service.
