On ​November 9th, Rocky Point High School Interact Service Club members together with their advisor, Mrs. Messinetti, and Rocky Point Rotarian, Susan Wilson, participated in a fall cleanup at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. Everyone took part in raking leaves, moving picnic tables, and general cleanup duties. They worked hard, but they also managed to have fun.  They were assisted by members of the Port Jefferson Rotary and Interact Clubs.

Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 14 to 18, sponsored by individual Rotary clubs which provide encouragement and guidance, but are self-governing and self-supporting. The Interact chapter at Rocky Point High School is sponsored by the Rocky Point Rotary Club. In addition to successfully executing its own fundraising and community service projects, Interact has often joined the Rocky Point Rotary Club in cleaning up the campgrounds at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck.
