Welcome to the Rotary Club of Alamo!

Feel free to drop in any Wednesday, and you will be greeted by a club member! The first lunch is on us.

Recently the Interact Club at Monte Vista High School held its annual Awards Luncheon, where the top 25 members of the Interact club were awarded medals for their outstanding participation in this year’s service projects. The medals were awarded by the Rotary Club of Alamo, which has sponsored the Monte Vista Interact Club for the past 27 years. Interact is an international service club for students ages 12-18, and it is one of the oldest and largest service clubs worldwide, with over 15,000 clubs in 142 countries. Monte Vista’s top 25 Interactors were those students, out of a club membership of over 85 students, who earned the most points, by attending meetings and participating in monthly service projects this school year.

This year’s Interact service projects included buying and filling backpacks for needy students in Contra Costa County, writing holiday letters to US servicemen overseas as part of the Blue Star Mom’s Holiday Project, buying holiday gifts for toddlers at the Bay Area Crisis Nursery, collecting warm clothing for the county’s homeless population, raising money for the Wheelchair Project to provide wheelchairs for impoverished people in Central America, collecting and sorting food for the Contra Costa Food Bank, and helping Alamo Rotarians at their Easter Egg Hunt in Livorna Park. Many of these projects were done in partnership with the Rotary Club of Alamo during a year full of many opportunities for living the club’s motto, “Service Above Self”
