For Little Cypress Junior High’s new Interact Club’s first project, the group chose to put their main focus of “serving others” at the top of their agenda. The Interact Club, a youth version of Rotary sponsored by the Orange Rotary Club, served a chili lunch to 60 of the construction workers building their new school.

According to Wendy Hanks, one of the co-sponsors of the group, 42 students helped serve the luncheon. “Many, many, many of these men expressed to us that no one had ever provided anything for them while working – they were most appreciative,” said Hanks. Stephanie Lyons is also a co-sponsor of the new organization.
