Foran High Interact Club to Host ‘Empty Bowls’ Event Friday

MILFORD – When it comes to helping the community, the Joseph A. Foran High School Interact Club is first in line to assist. Their work continues this Friday night as the group prepares to host their ‘Empty Bowls’ event, which incorporates the talents of students and staff at the school while raising funds for two very important causes.

For $10 per person, patrons will receive a Soup dinner, beverage, dessert and a ceramic bowl to take home, made by Foran High art students! 100% of the proceeds from this event will be split between the Beth El Center and the Milford Food Bank.

The event will take place in the Foran High Cafeteria on Friday, March 30th, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Please join us to help out our local support agencies – and have fun!

“We would love to have as many people as possible attend our event and help support these two very worthy support centers for our community,” commented Jenny Taing, student and co-president of the Interact Club at Foran.

Background information for Interact Club(Taken from Rotary International)

Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.

Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be single gender or mixed, large or small. They can draw from the student body of a single school or from two or more schools in the same community.

Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of:

* Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
* Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
* Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
* Advancing international understanding and goodwill

As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.
