CHS Interact Club Home

The Interact Club of Coldwater High School (Coldwater, MI) is an organization dedicated to making life better for our community as well as for our school. Our 80+ members have made a commitment to serve others and our club has been doing that for over twenty-five years now. Along with our parent organization, the Coldwater Sunrise Rotary Club, we have been involved in a number of activities since our beginning. Our Website will showcase our activities throughout the school year, as well as providing a monthly calendar for our members.

We have been busy this year with several important community service projects within our school, community and world!  Here are some of the projects we have been working on!

ABC Challenge 2023 was a success!

The date of this year's ABC Challenge was Saturday, August 27th @ the Branch County Fairgrounds.

We had over 30 obstacles and around 250 participants in our mud race!  We want to thank our community and sponsors for their help with this event.  We will be giving back to the community nearly $5000!

We are already planning for next year's event so stay tuned!

International Outreach in the Dominican Republic

In 2014, the Interact Clubs of Southwest Michigan were looking for an International Immersion Project. Priority was in giving Members an opportunity to understand needs in a third world country.  

In the beginning, Interact Club travelers installed water filters in small Haitian villages among the Sugar Cane fields, called Bateyes. As time went on, we added building homes for Haitian families and providing medical support working alongside Missionary Doctors. In 2019, we added providing food and education.

For the home construction, we send money in advance to start the building, then complete the home and dedicate it on our last day.  We will begin working on our International Outreach Fundraising in the spring of 2023.

Traditionally at the end of the trip, we walk to the top of the village mountain with Batey children and give up our shoes.  This year we are sending two of our student members and our advisor to the Dominican Republic in June!  More pictures will be coming soon!

2023-24 Officers:

This year the Interact Club awarded senior, Caley Stout with the Interact Scholarship at Scholarship Night.  Each year the club does a variety of service projects for donations and we save this money to award a senior scholar with our scholarship.  The recipient must be a member of the club and in good standing.  Caley will be attending Grand Valley State University in the fall and is studying to become a future educator.  Good luck, Caley!
