Submitted by the Bedford Rotary Club
In October the Bedford Rotary Club launched the Interact Club, a community service organization for young people to serve the community, schools, and each other.
Members are encouraged by mentors to carry out projects, learn about the community, and develop life and leadership skills.
The Interact Club of Bedford TV is designed to incorporate the professionalism of a fully functioning TV studio to enable students as young as third grade to highlight the positive values of our town. It is designed for students from the Lane and John Glenn Middle schools and the mentors can include students from Bedford High School.
There are many benefits of joining this club, such as writing skills improvement as well as life and leadership skills development. Involvement in the club will be time well spent as students will have opportunities to interact with each other and become involved with projects that normally they wouldn’t be involved with. Students will also gain community service credit required for BHS graduation.
Meetings are held at the Bedford Historical Society’s third-floor facility in Old Town Hall on South Road and tentatively will take place on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month after school. Each meeting is an opportunity to promote international understanding and peace and will benefit each member.
The first meeting will be held from 2 to 2:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 20 at the Old Town Hall, 16 South Road.
