Join the Olds High School Interact Club as they host their OHS Interact Banquet on Tuesday March 19, 2013. 


 On Thursday March  7th, the OIds High School Interact Club's Co-President Ashley Parker, Mykaela Bauer and Kristen Heemeryck presented to the club. The Interact Club is hosting the OHS Interact Banquet on Tuesday March 19th, 2013. The evening will include dinner, live music, auction, and a speaker from Malawi Girls on the Move. All proceeds from the Banquet will be split between Interact's three main causes this year, Malawi Girls on the Move, Micro-Credit and Bridge Teams International. 


Malawi Girls on the Move is an organization that supports the Atsikana Pa Ulendo Education Foundation. Their mission is to provide quality education to girls from the rural areas of Malawi who would be otherwise unable to continue with their education beyond primary school, due to a lack of financial support. Micro-credit through Medic Canada provides people, often women, with the loans they need to get their businesses up and running, thus giving them independence and the means to provide for themselves and their families. Bridge Teams International is an organization being started by local man Mike Poffenroth. In the past Mr. Poffenroth has gotten together groups of people to travel to communities in need and built schools or other necessary community buildings, then filled them with supplies such as sports equipment and school supplies. This year Mr. Poffenroth and his associates are undergoing the process of registering Bridge Teams International so that it is recognized as a registered non-profit organization under the Canadian Government. Next year he plans to continue with his trips, which are learning experiences in themselves.


Tickets are $20 for an adult and $15 for a student and can be purchased at the High School office or from Lori Beal at this Thursdays meeting.
