Lobster rolls are not the easiest things to produce in great quantities, yet the Gloucester High Interact Club did just that with its Lobster Roll Fundraiser, selling lobster rolls to the students, staff and community members.

This year, as in past years, the club kept it local and got their lobsters from Mortillaro’s Lobster Co. on Commercial street.  Interact club members spent the morning making the lobster rolls, and will deliver them all over Gloucester this afternoon.

The event was organized by the Interact club’s board, with leaderships from co-presidents Cody Eaton and Emily Russo.

“This year it is more popular than ever,” said GHS history teacher and student adviser Mr. Michael Perreault. “It is probably, in terms of organization, one of the biggest things all year.”

“We have sold at least a hundred more lobster rolls,” said Interact Club treasurer Kate Parisi, who says the group raised more than $2500.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards the Interact Club’s Relay for Life and fund the Christmas party they host for Pathways For Children every year.

Interact Club is always looking for new members. For more information on Interact Club see Mr. Perreault in room 2217, or email him at mperreault@gloucester.k12.ma.us.
