Clayton Ridge Interact Club, which was established on Sept. 13, 2013, was presented its official club charter during the Guttenberg Rotary Club’s meeting held on Thursday, Feb. 13, at Riverview Café.  

Rotary Club President Peggy Degnan  presented the charter to Interact President Taylor Schaefers. Other Interact officers are  Kris Ihde, vice-president; Maysie Scherer, treasurer; Hope Heitman, secretary, and directors Jonathan Klaes, Brianna Finnegan and Kaylyn LeGrand.  

"Guttenberg Rotary Club is the proud sponsoring club of this great group of young people who have already accomplished so much as a club this year," said President Degnan.  The Clayton Ridge Interact Club is currently 24 members strong.

Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact Club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year:  one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.
