On February 17, 2014, the Dartmouth East Rotary Club held a joint meeting with the Dartmouth High School Interact Club
 
 
 
Bethany MacLean, co-head of the Dartmouth High School Interact Club
briefed members of the Dartmouth East Rotary Club on the activities of
her club at a joint meeting of the two service clubs on February 17 2014.
Bethany focused on the upcoming trip of her club members to the
Dominican Republic next month where they will stay with host families
while touring various part of the region to learn how thc e people live.
These trips will take them to the sugar cane fields where they will
experience what it is like to work in the arduous task of harvesting and
loading the cane for onward transport to the processing factories. One of
the villages they will visit is where the Rotary Club of Dartmouth East has
had a service project to contribute to the betterment of life of the migrant
workers, many of whom are disenfranchised Haitians from the neighboring
country sharing the island of Hispaniola.

The Dartmouth High School Interact Club is facilitated by Rotarian Heather Kent
and fellow teacher Heather Hughes.  The group left for the Dominican Republic
