Incoming 2016-17 Rotary District 5320 Governor, Ray Sanford, appointed Mitch as the incoming District 5320 Interact Chair. The position oversees Interact efforts of 45 local Rotary Clubs and more than 60 potential middle school and high school Interact Clubs in Orange County, California.
For those of you not familiar with Interact, it is a club youth ages 12-18 who are interested in connecting with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.
On a side note, most of our friends know that Lisa and I enjoy being active Rotarians with the Monarch Beach Sunrise Rotary Club. A few years ago our daughter, AJ, was honored to serve as our Rotary District’s Interact Governor and also as the President of her high school Interact Club. This year our son, Garrett, is active is the club.
During AJ’s senior year, she and her fellow Interact members did some amazing things to help our local, national, and international communities. Here’s a short video the Dana Hills High School Interact Club put together that I want to share with you!
