Members of the Beaver Dam High School Interact Club presented a check for $1,300 they had collected from local Rotarians. The funds will be used to acquire new books for the Beaver Dam Elementary School library.

The Beaver Dam High School Interact Club, sponsored and advised by the Rotary Club of Mesquite, recently undertook a fundraising project to purchase books for the Beaver Dam Elementary School Library.

Interact students Zittlalys Gonzalez, club president and Jimena Gutierrez, club secretary, appealed for donations from local Mesquite Rotary clubs in a combined noon meeting. They talked about the different ways the thirteen members of Interact raised funds by selling Danielle’s popcorn at the concession stand during the Beaver Dam ball games.

Beaver Dam Elementary School principal Jeremy Clarke attended the club meeting with students and reported that Interact students would choose their favorite books to purchase. Additionally, there would be a note in each student’s book explaining why they chose that particular book. Each book would be stamped with the Rotary Interact club logo.

“We are happy to help the library and excited to be able to choose our favorite books to be included,” Gonzalez said.

The two Mesquite Rotary clubs donated to the Interact club. And on Monday, Feb. 14, Gonzalez presented a check for $1,300 to elementary school librarian Ms. Oster during an assembly at Beaver Dam High School.
