The Rochester Rotary Club recently announced the establishment of a new greenspace at the Waypoint Center on Wallace Street. The initiative aims to enhance the outdoor environment at Waypoint for the benefit of young people in the community.
Thanks to the financial support provided by a District #7780 Grant, the Rochester Rotary Club was able to provide raised bed planters, a supply of plantings, three weather-resistant picnic tables complete with umbrellas, and an outdoor gas grill.
According to organizers, Rochester Rotarians wholeheartedly contributed their time and efforts toward the realization of this project, dedicating themselves to building the raised beds and diligently filling them with loam, ensuring the green space would be ready for spring planting.
On behalf of the Waypoint Center, Senior Manager Mandy Lancaster extended appreciation to the members of the Rochester Rotary Club for their exceptional generosity. Special recognition was given to Jackie Fitzpatrick and Christine Hounsell for their exceptional dedication and effort in bringing the project to fruition.
The Rochester Rotary Club said they couldn't have done it without help from Peter Rhoades, Hubbington's All-American of Barrington, Colonial Road Woodworks of New Holland, Pa.; Studley's Flower Gardens and Rochester Lowe's.
