Winning first place in the talent show at the annual Interact Club Convention in Pigeon Forge has its privileges.
Over the past week, members of the WCMS Interact Club have been performing their winning routine to community organizations and schools.
Last Thursday, the Interact Club presented its talent show to Noon Rotary members. On Tuesday, it was Breakfast Rotary’s chance. There’s also been a performance for the WCMS student body and an upcoming show is scheduled this Friday at Bobby Ray Elementary.
“So many bad things are said about kids today,” said Interact Club sponsor Susan Barrett to Noon Rotary members. “We wanted to show you some of the good things kids are doing. I think you can tell the future is in pretty good hands.”
After the talent show skits, Interact Club officers made a presentation highlighting their activities over the school year. This includes helping to pack boxes for Operation Christmas Child, operating a dunking booth at the Autumn Street Fair that raised hundreds of dollars, and working at the Lions Club food booth during the Warren County A&L Fair.
For the year, Interact Club members logged more than 2,300 community service hours.
“The big one is the Lions Club food booth,” said Barrett. “That club has gotten so small, they wouldn’t be able to operate the food booth without our help. They would have to shut it down.”
As for the talent show itself, Interact Club members performed theme songs from TV shows of the 1970s and ’80s. This included “The Flintstones,” “Gilligan’s Island,” “Scooby-Doo,” “The Brady Bunch” and “Happy Days.”
