BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Governor Livingston Interact Club had an eventful week. The Club organized a Boo Gram (candy-filled bags) sale for people to purchase and send the Boo Grams to their friends on Halloween. The club’s officers decided to use this opportunity to promote the international focus of the club. Sean McMahon, junior and executive officer, said “the fundraiser was the perfect way to combine something that was fun for the whole school that also benefited a great organization like UNICEF”. The club raised $250.00 to donate to UNICEF.
On Saturday, November 2, the Interact Club helped to serve pancakes and sausages at the annual Rotary Club community pancake breakfast. Students worked in two shifts to take orders, serve pancakes, clear tables, and pack-up takeout orders. Hungry Interact members did take some time out to relax and enjoy some pancakes of their own. Isabella Stravoiu, sophomore, said, “ It was fun to come together with friends and help out today”. Alyssa Pradhan, sophomore, added, “It was great to work with the Rotary Club for a good cause and the pancakes were good and fluffy!”
The Interact Club at Governor Livingston is affiliated with the Rotary Club of Berkeley Heights. Interact currently has over 100 members who participate in a number of local, national and international community service activities and fundraising events throughout the year.
