Rotarians at Work Project Update
A large number of volunteers worked quickly on Saturday, April 28 to plant 40 Crepe Myrtle trees and 40 Bougainvillea plants.  The planting was done by late morning.  As these landscape items grow and mature in the next few years, what was an ugly ditch will be transformed into an attractive backdrop when viewed from the playing fields.  It will also provide some erosion control for the area.  The large number of volunteers and the excellent organization and coordination of effort made this project run smoothly and contributed greatly to the successful completion of this project in far less time than was originally planned. Good work Dale Long and all of the volunteers !
