Rotary Club of Freedom Donates Bench

The Rotary Club of Freedom not only participated in the World Wetlands Day on February 2, 2013 where every year in early February countries from around the world celebrate World Wetlands Day, aimed at raising public awareness about the importance of wetlands, but also donated a bench, which represents their commitment to the protection of our wonderful and valuable wetlands.

Council Member Felipe Hernandez was on hand to say a few words about the generosity of the Rotary Club of Freedom.

The bench has been installed alongside of one of most heavily used City wetlands trails to show community support and partnership. ┬áThe benefits of the bench behind the City’s Nature Center will go along way. With over 7,000 local community members and area visitors every year, the Nature Center serves as a gateway to our award winning City trails. With this section of trail being one of the most visited and serving as the entrance to their first wetlands experience, it will serve for the enjoyment of the many residents and visitors looking for a place to sit and enjoy the view: from seniors and special needs visitors, bird watchers, dog walkers, parents and children, school programs, all will greatly appreciate the new addition of the bench.

Thank you Rotary Club of Freedom!
