At our club meeting on Thursday 25th June, we chartered our first Interact Club which has been formed at Carnforth High School.
Our members hosted a buffet dinner for 10 of the 12 members of the Interact club together with their families; Head Teacher Mrs Vicky Michael; Club Liaision Teacher Laura Taaffe; Chairman of School Board of Governors;, District 1190 Interact Officer Shaun McNeil, members of Carnforth Inner Wheel and Assistant Governor Richard Attenborough. The Mayor of Carnforth, Malcolm Watkins who is also a Past President of Carnforth Rotary Club was in attendance representing the Town Council.
First President of the Interact Club is Rebecca Neill who was presented with the Charter. She will shortly hand over to Vice President Amber Peck at the end of the school term. The club has already been busy fundraising and have collected half the money needed to purchase a defibrillator for the school.
Thanks must go to Youth Service Chairman Anthony Chick, who assisted by Rotarians Peter and Linda Lambson made the formation of the Interact club possible.
