Fourth Annual Butterfly Effect Project

The Clarence Rotary Club and the CHS Interact Club recently kicked off their fourth annual Butterfly Effect project, a physics concept that if an entire population of butterflies flapped their wings on this side of the continent, they could cause a hurricane on the other side of the continent. The project aims to see if this concept applies to acts of giving. The Rotary Club, for the fourth consecutive year, gave $50 to teams of two students in the hope they would do good for others.This project has afforded our students the opportunity to live the Rotary motto of service above self. Students research organizations and people in need and creatively provide tangible assets for them. To date, the Rotary has provided $10,000 to this program. Pictured below are Rotary President Paul Justinger, President Elect Ann Gaume and President of our CHS Interact Club, A.K. Ramakrishna.
