On May 17, 2016, our Rotary Club had a very special meeting at the Kings Park High School.  We were invited by the Kings Park High School Interact Club and were given an opportunity to take part in a joint meeting.  The presidents of both clubs provided a brief primer on each club's current projects as well as plans and hopes for future projects.  
Among the topics discussed, the Kings Park High School Interact Club has expressed its intent to support and assist with the Healing Garden, set up by the Commack-Kings Park Rotary Club at Nissequogue River State Park.  There was also talk of the first Rotary and Interact End Hunger LI event being hosted at Kings Park High School, by the Interact Club, this summer.  The Commack-Kings Park Rotary Club will of course be co-sponsoring the event and in the coming days, an exact date and time will be announced.
It has been a few short months since the Kings Park High School Interact Club has come into being.  In that time, the club has already accomplished great things.  From the Soles4Souls Drive to the planned work with General Needs and End Hunger LI, the club is making Kings Park and Rotary proud.  While the school year is coming to and end, the young men and women of the Interact Club don't see that as a reason to stop their good works.
While the rest of the Rotary District plans on starting our quarterly End Hunger LI projects on November 12, The Interact Club is taking the lead.  With a date now almost finalized for the last week of July or the first week of August, the Interact Club is well on its way to its next service project.  Keep an eye out on the Rotary District 7255 Calendar, as the date will soon be announced.  As you can imagine, every dollar helps, as does each volunteer.  So if you're looking to help out, please reach out the Alex Paykin, the Commack-Kings Park Rotary Club liaison to the Interact Club, to arrange to donate or participate...
