Great Falls Interact, a youth Rotary Club for high school students, held a service event on Saturday, Nov. 23, in Great Falls. The group, headed by Michael Ryan and Brooks Ward, organized and assembled packages for servicemen and women deployed overseas. The goal was to have as many packages as possible delivered to soldiers and sailors who will be separated from family and friends during the holiday season. The packages were filled with a variety of toiletry items, snacks and food, games and handwritten letters from the teens. The teens hope the packages will display gratitude to our troops, as well as deliver a little taste of home to brighten the soldiers' holiday. Great Falls Interact held several fundraisers throughout the course of the year, including a Krispy Kreme Donut Sale fundraiser and car washes in the Great Falls center, to raise the money to support this event. The Great Falls Adult Rotary Club matched the funds raised by the teens, thereby doubling the funds at the group's disposal. Several members from the community also donated to the cause. Great Falls Interact is a Youth Club associated with Rotary International, sponsored by the Great Falls Rotary Club. They meet bi-monthly developing service projects while making new friends and enjoying fellowship. This event was one of many projects organized by the group.
