Taylor also reported on the PRHS Interact Club's latest service project supporting Operation Shoebox which sends items to our troops overseas.  She stated that their Interact Club could use our help in two ways:  First - if you have a business and would be willing to have a "Collection Box"  placed in your business to collect items, please let Mike Carrier or Bill Clark know.  Second - If we could collect items from the following list and bring them to meetings overt the next few weeks,  we could fill our own box!
