Langley High School Students Allie Lee, Sam Hodges, Morgan Danner, and Eugene Kim participated in the 5K Help the Homeless Walkathon on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Saturday, Nov. 17. They walked as representatives of the Langley High School Interact Club sponsored by the Rotary Club of McLean, to raise money for local charities that serve homeless needs. Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 14 to 18. Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships, learn the importance of developing leadership skills and personal integrity, demonstrate helpfulness and respect for others, understand the value of individual responsibility and hard work, and advance understanding and goodwill. Rotary International sponsors over 10,000 Interact Clubs worldwide, involving more than 200,000 students.
The Rotary Club of McLean meets weekly for lunch, each Tuesday at noon in the Fellowship Hall of the Redeemer Lutheran Church, 1545 Chain Bridge Road, McLean. Membership is open to women and men who place “service above self” and who desire to make a contribution in their local and international communities.
