The West Clermont High School Interact Club, sponsored by Cincinnati Eastside Rotary, helped bring holiday joy to senior citizens in the community by creating and delivering Christmas wreaths to the Forest Hills Care Center in Union Township, OH. Because of COVID restrictions, residents of the senior center had not been allowed to welcome visitors so receiving the wreaths helped lift spirits and spread holiday cheer.

The project was led by Interact Club leader, Shelby Pairan, who recruited other Interact members, as well as members of the West Clermont Art Club and Bell Choir, to create the wreaths. An added challenge for Pairan was organizing the project amid virtual learning at West Clermont.

Pairan clearly demonstrated service above self by leading this expansive team and seeing the project through to completion and even assisting in delivering the wreaths to the center.
