Bundy (left) was the sponsor. Officers were Fred Cagle President, Ray Fuller,
Vice-President. & Larry Feurer, Secretary. Other members were J. C.
Fly, Bob Arnold, Nathan Arnold, Larry Brown, Allan Burstein & Phil
club and it has been active ever since. In this club, each high school
boy is matched with a Rotarian as his sponsor and the sponsor is
suppose to indoctrinate the youth on his classification. Similar clubs
flourished at Johnston City and in Herrin and a so-called "International
convention" was held in Johnston City on March 29, 1951, with "delegates"
from all three cities. The Teenarian club was renamed when the Interact
Club was officially sanctioned by Rotary International in the early 1960's.
