The Interact Club of Pawling (Aired on October 5, 2012)
Interact clubs are service organizations for teenagers (and sometimes younger students) sponsored by local Rotary clubs. The Interact Club of Pawling is sponsored by Pawling Rotary Club and the Pawling Recreation Department. Teens in the club enjoy volunteering to work on community and humanitarian projects, from fundraising to implementation. So say the two Pawling Interact Club members who were interviewed with their Advisor, Robyn Woolley, Assistant Recreation Director for the Town of Pawling and Advisor to the Pawling Interact Club. Unlike most Interact clubs, which are affiliated with a specific school, this Interact club is community-based and open to all teens (grades 5-12) in the Pawling area. The club meets after school. Its activities include a strong summer day camp program for ages 3-14 and representation of the club at Rotary International Day at the U.N.
