CAMBRIDGE — Student members of the Cambridge South Dorchester (CSDHS) Interact Club, along with their advisor, spent time in October cleaning trash from the school property. Giving of their time, the group split up covering as much ground as possible. The Interact Club has taken the cleanup as a project for two to three years not only to beautify but for environmental reasons, said Phil Reed, Cambridge Rotary member and advisor.
Interact Clubs are the high school component of Rotary targeting community service locally as well as worldwide. The CSDHS Interact Club is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cambridge. During the school year, the club works on a number of projects for the school but, also helps their sponsoring club with joint ventures. Interact is open to all students at the school — with their community service projects helping to satisfy service learning hours. As a member of the club, students are able to follow an interest many have, giving back.
Students participating in the cleanup were Sarah Condon, President; John Condon; Aamna Alvi, Vice-President; Bryce Jones; Amanda Bair, Secretary; Joey Newman; Jordan Todd and Ashlie Price, Treasurer. The group was joined by one of the club advisors Phil Reed.
