District Newsletter June 2017

The District Interact Committee led the year with a successful  leadership “Summit” activity that included breakout sessions for  Interactors, Faculty Advisors and Rotary Club Interact Advisors. The  event was sponsored by the DeSoto Rotary Club and held at DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas. This activity was unique in that it was led  by one Interact District Governor, RYLArian, RYE , Rotaractor, Facualty Advisor and a District Interact Committee Rotarian. This activity also  included for a second year “The House of InterAction”, which showcases  district service projects in which the youth can participate. This was a  huge success with more than 15 district Rotary Clubs and various Youth  Services.

We  have seven high school Interactors representing  Rotary District 5810. Students who participated  in this project also received community service  hours. Two District Interact Governors attended the  District Conference Cruise.

DG William “Bill" Dendy allowed me, as District Interact Chair, to  develop new youth programs while thinking “outside the box”. I  believe this freedom inspired our district youth to become more  involved with their local Rotary Clubs.

All students who  participated in this activity earned community service hours  towards their high school graduation.
