Rotary International is known best for their tireless work to eliminate polio from the planet, and ensure clean drinking water for every human on earth, but this weekend two Prescott clubs gather on the courthouse steps to serve our local community.
On Saturday, May 18th at 7:30 am, both the Sunup Rotary and Prescott Frontier Rotary clubs gather their members to clean up, polish, and care for two memorials on the Courthouse Plaza. The Sunup Club will care for the All Veterans Memorial by Neil Logan, that honors Prescott area veterans of the Vietnam War. Prescott Frontier Club will do the same for the Cowboy at Rest, the Equestrian statue by Borglum at the Courthouse. Both clubs join forces to repaint railings, wax the bronze, clean marble and replant the gardens around each memorial with the help of Watters Garden Center.
With over 35,000 clubs internationally, Rotary International gathers 1.2 million leaders that unit action that creates lasting change across the globe. Last year alone they donated 16 million hours with the Prescott memorial statues being only a fraction of their local work. Rotarians promote high ethical standards, fellowship, and goodwill across the planet.
God Bless America will be sung and Taps will be played when the work is complete.
