90 Acre Park in Cape Coral
Saving Young Lives
The Cape Coral Rotary Clubs and Kiwanis received approval for a pilot program that will introduce benches at school bus stops. The decision was made in response to the tragic death of an 8-year-old girl who was struck by a vehicle while waiting for her bus.
The Cape Coral City Council has given the green light to the program, which will see the installation of 200 benches throughout the city in time for the first day of school in August. Police Chief David Newlan joined representatives from the clubs in speaking about their efforts to raise funds for this initiative.
The First Friday of October local Rotary Clubs distribute 10,000 dictionaries to every third grader in Lee County. Each Dictionary is labeled with Rotary’s motto, the 4 Way Test of the things we think, say, or do.
- Is it the truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
- Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
