The Members of the Vista Rotaract Club have been working hard this year fundraising, holding coat and shoe drives, and have recently been developing their green thumbs. Brittany Czajkowski, Quality of Life Manager at Vista, describes the Rotaract Club as “a club that supports volunteer service projects for our Vista community.” The club provides an opportunity for our Vista students and Members to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and to promote better relations between all people through a framework of friendship and service.
The Rotaract Club has recently been working on their community garden here at the Madison Campus. So far this year they have grown cucumbers, squash, several varieties of tomatoes, bell peppers, herbs, and lettuce. The most recent project has been growing watermelon. They are just starting to grow, but the members of the club are hoping that in about a month there will be big watermelons to share with the Vista community.
This year the Rotaract Club has been involved in many other projects, including their effort to raise money for Save The Children's emergency response fund in partnership with Terri Lynn. It is awesome to see members of our community who just want to help, whether that means raising money to help someone they will never meet, or growing watermelons to share with their neighbor.
More to come…
