2023-2024 Club Members

The 2023 – 2024 Interact Club Members.

Interact Brings Coffee, Polio Plus $, Valentines Day Cards, and Smiles

On February 12, 2024, the Neshannock High School Interact Club once again visited the club. This time the very active club brought 34 cans of coffee for the City Rescue Mission, that’s over 50 pounds and a check for $186 from their Pinkies for Polio Fundraiser. The presentation of the check was coordinated with a visit from Past DG Beth Marshall who spoke to the club history of Rotary’s work to end polio. The Interact students also gave valentine cards to all of the Rotarians present at the meeting. They really put smiles on the faces of the New Castle Rotary Club members!

Santa’s Helpers – Ringing the Bell for Salvation Army Kettle Drive

Nothing like a couple of Santa’s helpers and a reindeer to get the season started. New Castle Rotary #89 rang the bell for the Salvation Army on December 15, 2023 at the Neshannock Giant Eagle. Two Rotary Interact Students from Neshannock High School with Rotarian and Advisor Brenda Devincentis, dressed for the season, kicked off the ringing for the day.
