2019-20 Year End Party

As Jenny Pearcy ends her year as Danville Rotary Club President, Mark Morgan steps into her shoes for his upcoming term.  The Rotary Club of Danville met on June 25th at the Cartlidge Barn of Hendricks County to celebrate, with food provided by The Mayberry Cafe.  Heath Allen received the Lois J Arnold Award for service to the community through the club.  Mark Morgan was selected as Rotarian of the Year.  Between the check which was presented and the cash donations that night, Shared Blessings was given almost $800 from Rotary.

Updates to Jack Willard Community Park

Since opening Jack Willard Community Park our club members have been overjoyed about the community use of the space. Never resting on our laurels, plans are in place for improvements to the space.

On October 26th we will introduce six local artists, two of them children, who have created artwork to be displayed in the park. The celebration will begin at 11:00, with artist introductions at 11:30. A free hot dog lunch will be provided. We are very excited to add this visual artistic component to the park.

Secondly, there are very few trees in the space and none big enough to provide much shade. We are undertaking an effort to provide a shade sail similar to the one in this picture.

This will be installed over the existing picnic table to allow for some cooling off during the hottest days of summer.

Thankfully the Town of Danville Parks Department can do the installation. However, we don’t want to have any cost to the Danville Parks Department for the structure itself.

Our club has committed funds for the project, and would like to enlist the communities help in funding this project. We are hoping to raise $2,000 through individual donations and our club will match that to make this dream a reality.
