MHS Interact Club

Interact Club members Lydia Beaulieu, Avery Hemingway, Julia Banacos, Anna Kaigle and Manolis Anemikos stand with advisers Kevin Endres and Jennifer Haas outside Milton High School on Wednesday. The group is participating in Green Up Day. 

MILTON — Green Up Day is this Saturday, but several Milton High School students were eager to get started early. 

Freshman Lydia Beaulieu, sophomores Avery Hemingway and Julia Banacos and seniors Anna Kaigle (vice president) and Manolis Anemikos (president), all members of MHS' Interact Club, participated in the annual event on Wednesday, April 28. 

Interact, which began at MHS nearly eight years ago, is a community service group associated with the Colchester-Milton Rotary Club.

The group is advised by Jennifer Haas, a guidance counselor at MHS, and Kevin Endres, Rotary's Youth Services Chair.

Endres said the weather was perfect on Wednesday. The students focused on picking up trash from the perimeter of the high school as well as U.S. Route 7.

Future Interacter Patrick Endres and Rotarian Kathi Walker-O’Reilly also joined the students in the Green Up efforts. 

Green bags can be picked up from the foyer of Milton's municipal office during open hours on Thursday and Friday. They will also be available on Saturday at the pavilion in Bombardier Park East. Here's what else you need to know to participate this year.
