The Mountain View Minions: Julie Vangroll, sponsor, Morgan Bell, Emma Waterman, Mikayla Mackall, Jack Byse and Rotarian Evan Hodson.

Two student groups supported by the Heights Rotary made appearances at the March 20 meeting.

Four students who serve as Mountain View Elementary Minions, a service organization made up of fifth-graders, shared information about recent service projects and upcoming plans.

Morgan Bell reported they sponsored trick-or-treat for UNICEF and a books and supplies drive for Africa.

“This year we’ve become pen pals to African school children and we just got our first letter back,” Mikayla Mackall said.

Jack Byse told adults about the school’s food drive.

“We collected 300 cans for those who need it most,” he said.

Emma Waterman said a winter dance fundraiser brought in more than $500.

Representatives from the Harker Heights High School Interact Club were also at the meeting and distributed a flier outlining the “Ready, Set, GLOW Electric Fun Run and Walk” supporting Rotary Books for the World. The event is at 6:30 p.m. April 12 at Carl Levin Park.

The fun run begins at 8 p.m. Early registration ends April 7 and is $20. On-site registration is $25. Children ages 11 and younger will be admitted free with a participating adult.

“Wear your glow-in-the-dark finery for the nighttime run,” said Interact President Jessica Babb. Prizes will be awarded for the best and brightest costumes.
