Monday's $50,000 donation to the Arc of Dreams marks Rotary as one of the largest contributors to this iconic stainless steel structure that will be spanning the Big Sioux River downtown. SculptureWalk Sioux Falls Arc of Dreams project is a privately funded sculpture slated for downtown Sioux Falls.
The idea was founded around Valentines Day. A perfect match with Rotary Has Heart. New member, Margaret Grimm is manager of the Senior Golden Living Center, Member Janet Roehrich is the owner of Roetell Senior Living Center, and Gayle Wookey is owner/manager of the Wookey Assisted Living Center. All three of these Rotarians stepped up to making arrangements in their Centers for the event.
Linda is available to give a presentation about this project anytime, contact her at Linda4Rotary@me.com.
If your club would like to provide support, but do not have the resources for the full donation, here is a great option. Our District sent $1320 in May to St. Jude for this year. We are on our way to making a difference in our world by changing the future for one very poor, bright child in Arusha, Tanzania and helping in the classroom of a very dedicated teacher. Together we are all making our world a better place!!
