BRAWLEY — Brawley Union High School has added a new club to its collection.

The Interact Club, a service club sponsored by Brawley Rotary Club, was started at the beginning of the school year and its members are busy helping their school and community.

Monthly meetings organized by the officers, who include president Josias Aguiar, vice president Mario Zuniga, secretary Trisha Marden and treasurer Chris Hayes are the foundation for most of the club's activities.

Headed by their adviser, Brawley Union High School District Superintendent Garth Isom, the Interact members have done activities such as a cleanup at the Brawley Rotary Park, a rummage sale, a bike/walkathon, a visit to Imperial Oasis senior facility and gathered clothing and money donations for The Salvation Army.

April Alexander, one of the club's more active members, said, "The Interact Club is fun and enjoyable and has introduced me to new challenges."

The club is in the process of coming up with some activities for the coming months, which include a books-for-donuts fund raising, the "30-Hour Famine," going to the California Mid-Winter Fair with Brawley's Royal Convalescent Hospital patients, an Easter egg hunt and alternating monthly visits between local retirement homes and day-care centers in Brawley. Isom said.

"In the first year of Interact, the students would have done many activities that helped out others locally and internationally," Isom said.
