Marshfield Sunrise Rotary, city partner on Peach Avenue beautification
For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — The Marshfield Sunrise Rotary Club assisted the city of Marshfield in planting approximately 28 bare root trees on South Peach Avenue near the Marshfield Fairgrounds.
“Our club has always been an active community partner spending time on projects to help beautify our community and support the environment,” said Rotary Club President Pat Gall. “This is a great opportunity for us to be active participants in the community like we always have and in a safe way.
“We’ve also cared for and assisted in enhancing spaces like Braem Park, a stretch of Highway 10 through Adopt-A-Highway, greenspaces along the Veterans Parkway corridor, and other improvements at Marshfield Fairgrounds Park and the UWSP at Marshfield Arboretum.”
One of Rotary International’s seven areas of focus is “supporting the environment,” as Rotary groups dedicate many volunteer hours each year to projects and causes that promote environmental sustainability.
The city received a grant from American Transmission’s Community Planting program to fund the trees and the Sunrise Rotary Club provided community volunteer participants to fulfill requirements of the grant.
Sunrise Rotary consists of about 60 local community members and business people with a mission of “providing service to others, promoting integrity, and advancing world understanding, goodwill and peace through fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.”
