One good deed deserves another.

The Kalamalka Rotary Club matched Vernon’s W.L. Seaton Secondary School’s Interact Club (Junior Rotary) fundraiser with a $2,000 donation.

The Interact Club raises funds through various volunteer activities, and uses the money to help out in the community and around the world.

“The funds this year are going to sponsoring a family initiative here in Vernon, as well as a donation to a cancer research organization,” said Interact Club leader Brooke Sjoberg.

The money was raised through bi-weekly recycling days at school, and weekly pizza sales every Friday.

“The Kalamalka Rotary Club matches the amount Seaton raises up to $2,000,” said Rotarian Jim Ferguson, joined in making the donation by fellow Rotarian Michael Finn.

The Interact Club also organizes Sonic Sound Fest at the school each year.
