Five members of the OHS Rotary Interact Club and two OHS teachers and Rotarians are planning to participate in an international service project in two impoverished areas.  They will deliver and assemble water filters, teach proper handwashing to children, build and paint latrines, deliver health and safety products, and help remove trash from blighted areas.  Seniors Leilah Kard, Axel Raybourn, and Aidan Taylor, Sophomore Kyden Ehle, and Freshman Ashton Ehle will be traveling with the Interact Club’s Faculty Advisor Brianne Becker and International Specialist and OHS Spanish teacher, Etna Romo.  They will be part of a group of 16 students and 8 adults from Rotary Interact clubs in eastern Michigan.

This project is part of Rotary International’s Clean Water Emphasis.  The Oscoda Rotary Club participated with other clubs years ago in making clean water available to these two communities.  The Oscoda Interact Club sent students to help these areas in projects from 2016 through 2019 and are delighted to finally be able to send another team this year, after a long COVID delay.


The Oscoda students will meet with two Rotary Clubs and two Rotary Interact Clubs while they are there.   The Dominicans are proud of their beautiful country and will enjoy showing the sites to our students.  This year’s group is committed to beginning every conversation with local residents in Spanish!  Mrs. Romo is giving the students weekly lessons in conversational Spanish.


The DR Trip Team will be having several fund raisers, including bagging for tips at the Family Fare in Oscoda.   Participants will send letters or emails to their sponsors with details from the trip after they return.


Dr. Jim Kent, Co-Advisor of the OHS Interact Club is available to answer questions.  He can be reached at or 989-390-4643.
