The Grove Interact Club joined  the Elk Grove Rotary Club recently at the Packages for Patriots.  The Interact Club was started several years back and is basically a Junior Rotary Club at the local Junior High.  The club is supported by The Elk Grove Rotary Club and is organized at the school by Angela Addante a teacher in the school.  The students meet after school and organize different events to help others in the area.

The Elk Grove Rotary Club once again held a Senior Holiday Lunch for the local Seniors at the Park District Sheila Ray center.  Fun was had by all which included singing, raffles and a full Turkey meal with all the fixins.  This is the clubs way of showing appreciation for the seniors in the community.  This has been a tradition for about 30 years.
Elk Grove Rotary Club has once again purchased 1200 books to promote Literacy to local children.  The books contained many different fun and interesting titles for children just learning to read to chapter books for more advanced children.  The books are distributed to several local food pantries as well as School District 59.  The books are placed in the holiday baskets that are given to local families in time for Thanksgiving.
