A Helping Hand To Clean Up
Sonora 49er Rotary Interact Club Members
Sonora, CA -- Sonora teens pitch in to help pick up the trash for a city in Mexico. The Sonora 49er Rotary Interact Club has just returned from a week in San Felipe Mexico. They have traveled to the city four years in a row to work with the Rotary Interact Club there. Twenty teens from Sonora High School and Sonora Elementary School worked alongside the San Felipe teens to pick up garbage along the city's roadways.
The trip got some press in Mexico. The Mayor of Mexicali, Mexico, the State Capital of Baja, was interviewed along with Sonora 49er Rotary Interact Club President Ruger Pearson about working together in community service. Also, the City of Mexicali has given the Sonora Interact Club its International Service Award.
Club members not only picked up trash, but they pitched in, in other ways as well. Sonora club member Cameron Avery raised $400 as part of his Senior Project to buy sports equipment for San Felipe schools.
The Interact Club is already making plans for next year's trip. The Club is open to teens from 7th grade to 12th grade. Click here to get more information.
