Local Interact Students Serve to Change Lives

Remember how our theme last year was "Rotary Opens Opportunities?" or how about in 2019-2020 when the theme was "Rotary Connects the World?" Turns out those RI Presidents know what they're doing when they choose them. Check this out! 
Meet Avery- former Interact Club President from Logan High School. She, along with her Spanish class, made hard cover books designed for elementary level reading. Each book has a message or a lesson and teaches about the state of Wisconsin (#1 in the USA), our food (you know... cheese curds, bratwursts, beer and Old Fashioned cocktails, butter burgers, and don't forget Friday night fish fries) and our amazing Midwestern culture. Uff Dah! 
Knowing Rotary's connections around the world (there are over 35,000 Rotary clubs in more than 220 countries), Avery brought the project to Logan Interact Advisor and our very own RAHtarian, Nick Ragner for help. "Hey! After Hours did a water project installing filters in schools in Mexico," shrieked Nick. A phone call later to prAHsident Mansee, a connection was made. The Logan High class finished up the books at the end of spring 2021. A total of 29 books were sent south with Logan Interact covering the postage. The students at Ignacio Allende Primary in Dzitnup, Yucatán (small village outside of Valladolid) received the books a couple of weeks ago and they are busy learning all about the Badger State! Oh yah, You-betcha!
Check out the pictures of the Logan students with their books they created to send to students in Mexico.
Below are the pictures of the students in Mexico with their new books and the director of the school, Candelaria May.
