Interact Speakers

For our weekly meeting Tuesday Dec. 12th 2017 we were privileged to have Tom Quintois and his three new members from the Lansdale Catholic Interact club describe their first projects.  Jack Crotty, Taylor Connelly, and Kira Sullivan’s projects were wonderfully described in last week’s newsletter by our own Super Doc. 
As a relatively new member to Rotary I was interested to know more about these clubs that provide young community leaders an introduction to Rotary and our ideals.  Interact is for people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self (511,796 members in 22,252 clubs). After Interact, Rotaract is for those ages 18-30 to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service (242,949 members in 10,563 clubs).   There is also the Rotary Community Corps (RCCS) that plan and carry out projects in their communities and support local Rotary club projects but are not members of a Rotary club (210,500  members in 9,900 corps). 
These clubs are a wonderful opportunity for our young community leaders to hone their skills, network, meet new friends, and hopefully live a fulfilled life within the Rotary community.
