NEWEST CLUB PROJECT:
IT'S ANOTHER PLAYGROUND!!!
 
North Country Park will be home to a new natural 'playscape.' It's described it as a natural playground created with native plants, hills and trees to provide a connection to nature for children. The new playground would fit in with the park at 1001 30th St., as it's already home to an outdoor classroom and butterfly gardens. We will assist in design, development and public engagement with the project. As part of the agreement, our club has agreed to raise $30,000 for the project. The city's commitment is up to amount of $50,000. The plan is for design work to take place this winter with construction to follow in summer or fall 2020. 
 

Zoom in for our weekly Rotary Meetings 

We all have been overwhelmed with information about the Coronavirus, including health and public safety information from a number of sources. Guidance from Rotary International, federal, state, and local health departments, as well as a new and evolving set of social norms are being carefully considered as we take action to deal with this pandemic at the club level.
 
Our club will continue to meet weekly, online via ZOOM as well as be present in our community.

Nothing can fully replace the value of face-to-face meetings among our members. However, the risks from the pandemic require changes in line with the four-way test. Take care of yourselves and take care of each other by limiting the chances of viral transmission, particularly for the most vulnerable.
