Rotary Club of Jamestown

Southwestern Interact Club will be holding a run in Lakewood on Sunday, June 4, 2017 starting at 9:00 a.m. There will be a 5K and a 10K team run with two people-each running 5K. Prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall winners and for the winner of the age categories of the 5K run.

Southwestern Interact is a program of Rotary Club of Jamestown to encourage service among youth, foster an active interest in the community, and offer opportunities to develop as leaders. The students do two community service activities a year. Founded by Jared Yaggie and Jillian Lawton, the Club has a core group of Senior High students mentoring Middle School students.

The students have chosen to raise funds for Nothing but Nets, a United Nations sponsored project to provide nets to protect people from malaria-carrying mosquitos in Africa. (http://nothingbutnets.net).
