The brand new Interact Club of the Sacred Heart High School is now Official !
After months of behind-the-scenes work, getting the young people lined up, informing them about Rotary, Interact and the great potential of Interact, PDG Greg Arcaro and former Club Secretary Peggy Murphy, supported by Sacred Heart High School Faculty Anne Murphy, the Club was officially chartered.  Following receipt of all the required paperwork, District Governor Krishnan Chittur approved the application and forwarded it to Rotary International.  Rotary International President Barry Rassin signed the Charter on 7 December.
Interact is Rotary International's service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting. Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be single gender or mixed, large or small. Interact clubs bring together young people to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self. There are 20,372 Interact Clubs in the world today with 468,556 members, in 159 countries.  
Interact clubs organize at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Rotary club sponsors mentor and guide Interactors as they carry out projects and develop leadership skills.
