Interact is a Rotary-sponsored club that gives young people an opportunity to participate in fun and meaningful service projects while developing leadership skills and meeting new friends.
The fundamental purpose of Rotary Interact is to help others. This is a logical extension given that Rotary’s motto is “service above self”. Through service activities, Interactors demonstrate helpfulness and respect for others, learn the importance of developing leadership skills and personal integrity, and advance international understanding and goodwill. Members of the club help to develop and carry out a wide variety of service projects. Raising money for worthwhile causes, working within the school, and working directly with people in the community are just a few ways Rotary Interact members are involved. Members of the club also assist the Rotary Club of Greater Bend and the District 5110 with various local community projects and events.
There are no special requirements for membership other than a willingness to help others and a desire to make our community a better place in which to live. There a small $5 dues (which goes to help cover club expenses and projects) and everyone is welcome.
