SPS' Interact Club To Host Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser Jan. 31

       The Saugatuck Rotary affiliated High School Interact Club is sponsoring a fundraiser Spaghetti Dinner on Friday, January 31 at the Saugatuck High School.
        The food will be served during the home girl’s and boy’s basketball games from 5:30 to 7 p.m.   
        Dinner includes spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, dessert and beverages.
        Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 students, children under 5 are free, and are available from Rotarians or at the Saugatuck High School. Tickets will also be available at the door.
        “This event was a terrific success for the Interact students last year and we’re looking forward to strong community support again this year,” said Rotary Club President Laree Waanders.
        “We’re thrilled that Gordon Food Service has donated all the food for the event, and the High School’s food service staff is donating its time to help prepare the meal. It’s a wonderful opportunity to support local students who are involved in an exciting international service project.”
        Funds raised will be used to help send Saugatuck High School Interact students to the Dominican Republic this summer.
        This is the second trip the Saugatuck Interact students have taken to the Dominican Republic.  
        During this trek they will help with the installation of clean water units to support impoverished families along with building public latrines.
        The Interact Club has more than 20 members who work throughout the year the raise money to purchase and install bio-sand water filters to supply communities in the developing country with clean drinking water.
        Currently the students are making and selling smoothies throughout the week at Saugatuck High School in addition to the spaghetti supper.
        Rotary International so far has installed 19,000 bio-sand filters in the Dominican Republic through the Rotary’s Children’s Safe Water Alliance. The project has reached about 100,000 people in 300 communities.
        The Saugatuck-Douglas Rotary Club is part of Rotary International, an organization of more than 1.2 million members.          Made up of over 34,000 Rotary clubs around the world, Rotary International forms a global network of business, professional, and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve communities locally and around the world.
