Rotary Club of Grand Island, New York

 
Interact Students at Connor Middle School on Grand Island placed 'Sticker Shock' labels on beverage cases at the Grand Island Tops Super Market to remind purchasers it is illegal to provide alcohol to youth. Allison Hill, Peyton Shearer, Maya Ruiz, Carissa Hoover, Amina Shaibi and Despina Minasidis all took part. These students were building on the start with service projects they got in another Rotary service by youth project: EarlyAct clubs in their elementary schools. Both Interact and EarlyAct represent programs where students themselves develop service projects on the model shown by Rotary Clubs over the years. The project was sponsored by One Island One Team Drug Abuse Prevention Coalition (and Erie Co. Alcohol Abuse Council) and led by Interact Club Teacher Advisors Carley Antonelli and Crystal Barnes. Oh, and the students got pizza and pop from Tops Manager Patty Bianco after their work!
