Members of the Gloucester High School Interact Club fanned out across the city on October 27 as they delivered more than 420 lobster rolls sold during the month of October. The annual fundraiser took in $6,400 and netted close to $4,000 for the Club.  The students will be making a donation to the American Cancer Society from these proceeds.

The students spent the evening before cleaning the lobster meat and undertaking the monumental task of organizing the delivery routes for the following day.  They gathered during the morning of the 27th in the Gloucester High School culinary kitchen to make the lobster rolls and assemble and pack the lunches for delivery for Friday lunchtime.  Earlier in the week, students also worked with Club President Julie Geary of Classic Cooks to bake the more than 400 homemade cookies that were part of the lunches.
The Club thanks the numerous Cape Ann residents, organizations and business supporting this project through their purchases of lobster roll lunches.

The Gloucester High School Interact Club undertakes a variety of service activities for organizations in the community and beyond, including organizing the annual Christmas party for students at Pathways for Children; staffing the annual Holiday Store for Wellspring House; distributing free dictionaries donated by the local Elks Club to all of Gloucester’s third-grade students; participating in the January Polar Plunge to raise funds for polio eradication; organizing the annual spring Pizza Taste-Off, which last year raised $1,700 for the American Cancer Society; hosting parties for students at Gloucester’s elementary schools; and donating close to $3,000 to a wide ranges of local, national and international causes
