On November 8, the Andover Interact Club hosted the District-wide InteractCafe event which included Interactors from Haverhill, Lawrence and North Andover.  At the Cafe, which is a workshop that explores initiatives for interact across the district, Andover interact Club President, Annabel Pierce presented Alan Michel with a check for $500.  They raised the funds from the Chamber of Commerce, while volunteering for Andover Days. The funds will be used to match the Andover Rotary Club grant that we are receiving from the Rotary District to purchase the Buddy Bench.  Chamber member Bob Lavoie presented the check to Interact President Annabel Pierce.  In the photo from left to right are Chamber Member, Bob Lavoie, Interact President Annabel Pierce and interact members Saoirse Daly, Silvia Storch, and Savannah Ross.

Andover Rotarians Gail Ralston, Alan Michel, Jean and Joel Leider, Al Timm and Sheryl Meehan were also in attendance.
