Students, working with Rotary members, took part in all aspects of the event, including ticket sales, preparation, cooking, serving and cleanup.

The funds raised from the dinner are slated for the creation of scholarships to be awarded to Oswego High School seniors later this school year.

During the dinner, Sunrise Rotary member Bill Symons said, “This is community service and Rotary at their best, young members of our community working with Rotarians to raise money to help our kids pursue their college dreams.”

OHS Interact Club Advisor Warren Shaw and Club President Rebecca Victory echoed Symons’ sentiments and also added their appreciation for the scholarships that will be generated.

Both clubs expressed their gratitude to Pathfinder Bank for sponsoring the event and to Lisa Shaw of the Oswego Tea Company for donating the use of her kitchen and dining room for the dinner.
