Rotary Club of Hilton Head’s guest speaker this past Thursday at Early Act at HHPrep was the mother of two of their Early Act members,  Vana Matte.  She spoke to the children about her years as a schoolgirl in India and being involved with Rotary.  Her Rotary helped feed the hungry, build shelters for the homeless, build cyclone safety shelters.  The children listened intently and enjoyed hearing about Rotary in another country.

Vana Matte and her family have been on HHI for just over a year.  She is joining me at our Feb 12 meeting to see if she might want to join the Club!!

Rotary Clubs Host First Beaufort County Interact Symposium

 Serving Community  Comments Off on Rotary Clubs Host First Beaufort County Interact Symposium
Oct 172013
 

On September 28th the Bluffton, Okatie and Hilton Head Island Rotary Clubs hosted the first Beaufort County Interact Symposium for all Interact students within Beaufort County at the Bluffton Boys & Girls Club. Interact Clubs from Hilton Head High School, Hilton Head Prep, Bluffton High School, Beaufort Academy, Beaufort High School and Battery Creek are all represented.

Everyone arrived early on Saturday and participated in fun group activities designed for the students in all the four participating schools to get to know one another. This was followed by a service event; various projects needed by The Boys and Girls Club were tackled enthusiastically by the students. They cleaned and built and scrubbed and designed and created until all the work was done, they then came together for lunch and closing activities.

Over 65 students participated in the Interact Symposium, which included team building, planning, service projects and just plain enjoying a fun-filled day. There were over 20 Rotarians involved.  We hope to have several students from this group go to the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Program in June.

Event organizer and past president for the Hilton Head Rotary Club Mike Jukofsky said, “The conference was a great way for all the Interact kids from across Beaufort County to meet and learn about other clubs…what they are doing, membership concerns, projects, meeting activities…a time for sharing and learning. It was a great success and we hope to have started an annual event for the Interact students in Beaufort County”.

Well over 100 children participated in our second annual Safety Town event.  Each child visited 5 different venues to learn lessons about safety habits and actions:  Road safety as they drove KettKars around Safety Town (thanks to Tom Trout for his working traffic signal); the hospital where teddy bears were treated with TLC; Stranger Danger and calling 911 (with a live operator), Friendly Firemen and the Hazard House; and the Sandbox craft stop with snacks.

Many thanks to Vic Neeley and Plantation Café for providing food for the 43 Rotarians, Interact members from HHIHS and HH Prep, and others who volunteered.  Parents were effusive in their praise of the whole program and its organization. Thanks to all who served tirelessly on the committee to make it all happen.  To see the WSAV news clip, visit http://alturl.com/otrkd.
