Theresa Eisenbarth, the Rotary Club liaison with the Medicine Hat High School Interact Club provided an update on the club for 2018 - 2019 with the start of the school year behind us and with some time for the students to begin the organization process.  Theresa and Anne Carrier have been helping get the club organized this year, and they have 15 - 16 diverse and enthusiastic members this year.
Currently the selection of Executive is taking place and they have a couple of fundraisers already planned.
  • They are running a 3 day bake sale, to coincide with Parent-Teacher interviews.  The dates are October 17th and 18th. Donations of baked goods from Rotarians would be appreciated.
  • On Wed Oct 24, they will be fundraising specifically for World Polio Day by doing a "Purple Pinky" promotion.  All Rotarians are invited to stop by and participate.
They are also hard at work on their Hospital room project.  They had raised $1,241 in 2017-18 and then were the recipients of a $2,000 grant from CFSEA.  So, some painting and window stenciling has taken place and they are working on curtains and furniture at this point.  It is room # 50 on the Pediatrics Ward, and they hope to have a nautical theme for the room.
