A special week for Rotary and Interact Club

Last week was an incredible week for the members of the Rotary Club of North Raleigh and the Millbrook High School Interact Club…for separate and common reasons. On March 22nd, about 15 members and family members of the Rotary Club of North Raleigh gathered to plant trees/shrubs and then participated in a park cleanup at the Cedar Hills Rotary Park off Millbrook.

Traveling there is an experience in itself, but traveling there to visit rural schools is challenging.   Past President Terry Hutchens made his second trip to Guatemala in 2014.
