Another point to this is to also contact Rotaract Clubs. Like Interact,
they are involved with Rotary and cater for those who are aged 18 to 30.
members sometimes come from Interact clubs...But we also have our fiar
share of scouting people as well (take me for example, a Cub Leader, former
Rover and now president of the local Rotaract Club)
Rotaract stands for Rotary in Action and has service as their main push as
well. As a President of the local club here where I live, I know that if
you asked the Rotaract club and Interact Clubs, they would be more than
willing to help out wiht offering the people to help any scouting event,
especially if it was related to Egle or Gold Award service projects.
The reason I suggest this, is, as stated int he first paragraph is that
service is a vital part of the organisation and unlike many Rotary Clubs,
do not have a lot of money, but are more than willig to donate the physical
man power (sorry if that offends anyone, but I think you know what I am
trying to say) to actual activities that will benift the local community in
Just out of Interest, Interact caters for those aged 15 to 18 and Rotaract
is for those who are 18 to 30.
I just thought people might like to know of other resources to call upon
for help at service activies etc.
