Our Stellar Rotarian, John Brown, has given real impetus to the Interact program in our Club.
The Club Supports six existing Interact Clubs. The Interact clubs are Brookwood Upper School, Scholars Academy, Thomas County Central High School, CHART Home School, Thomasville City Schools Rose City Strings Orchestra and Bishop Hall Charter School. These clubs now comprise 205 students and 6 faculty advisors. They accomplished a record number of community and International Club projects. The students have had 193 volunteers to date that have worked on thirteen projects which have had a very positive impact on our community for 1795 volunteer hours and have raised $240 for an African Missionaries project with Global Outreach international. The report on the individual club's projects and activities is attached below. In addition to the student volunteers listed below, three Rotarians served as mentors for Interact Club students.
On October 24, 2017, World Polio Day, the Thomasville Rotary Club held a cookout for our Interact Students. Videos explaining Polio, a Guest Speaker and a gave of trivia at the end kept the Interact Students interested in learning more about the Rotary Clubs of the world and it's fight to end Polio. These students were also invited to help with the painting of the map of the United States this upcoming weekend at Harper School.
