Denison High School Interact Club delivers hand made cookies and cards to residents at local Wesley Village Assisted Living.
Interactors, led by Club President Roxy Smith and Club Treasurer Joseph Mallillin,  were given a survey of service projects and asked to vote on which ones they’d like to do over the next school year and making Christmas cards for elderly was the winner.
After a little research the club decided to visit Wesley Village residents, an Assisted Living Center in Denison.   Upon further discussion, and it being christmas time, the club decided to bake and decorate cookies and also hand make christmas cards for the 60 residents.  Popcorn was also made for the few diabetics, which was much appreciate by the staff and the residents.
On December 10th, eleven interactors met at Denison Rotary DHS Interactor Chair Sharon Rolirad’s home.  Also helping was the Interact Club Advisor, Tonya Crump and Denison Rotarians Melanie Truxal and Cody Perryman.
Much fun and creative ideas found their way into the cookie baking and decorating,  and  the making of Christmas cards.  Pizza was served to energize the students.  The adults stood back and let the students have at it – and they did!  Materials for the cards were provided and they had a ball making very creative and sweet cards.  The cookies were delicious (hey we had to do a cookie quality test).  And decorating them was a little sticky but they all turned out fabulous.  All one of a kind.
On Friday, Dec. 13, 8 interactors met at Wesley Village and had a merry time distributing their hand made goodies to much appreciative residents.  The Interactors found their voices and also sang “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” to numerous residents. 
All in all, a merry and fun time was had by all and Santa hats off to the DHS Interactors and their first service project!
