Meeting News
Thursday meeting on October 19th

At the Broomfield Rotary Club’s regular Thursday meeting on October 19th, three principal officers of the Peak To Peak High School Rotary Interact Club were guests. Quinn Burns (Senior), Tanishka Targare (Junior), and Molly Kolachov (Sophomore) brought our Rotary members up to date on some of the projects they are focused on this school year. They continue to provide “tech” support at the Lafayette Senior Center each month to assist seniors attempting to navigate their smartphones and computers. They are also planning to reach out to eighth-grade classes on campus to encourage them to attend Junior RYLA in 2024, hopefully generating additional interest in Interact by entering freshmen.

Following the comments by the Interact members, there were numerous questions from our members and two members of the Broomfield Crossing Rotary Club who joined us to hear the Interact presentation.

The enthusiasm and obvious leadership skills demonstrated by the three students generated renewed interest among our members to revisit our support for Interact, not only at Peak To Peak but also at Broomfield and Legacy High Schools. The Peak To Peak officers offered to work with our club to help generate interest in other Broomfield area schools.

Isabelle Burns, mother of Interact President Quinn Burns, accompanied the Interact leaders. The Burns family has supported three Interact Club presidents at Peak To Peak High School: Quinn and sisters Naomi and Paige before her. In recognition of their incredible support for Rotary and Interact, the Broomfield Rotary Club honored Isabelle by designating her a Paul Harris Fellow.
