SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14 2015. BMG: A new set of playground equipment is on the way for installation at the Rotary Park in Santa Elena town, Cayo.
The equipment is coming from Canada and will be installed over the course of two days, on March 7 and March 8.
To make way for the new equipment, members of the San Ignacio Rotary Club were out at the park on Saturday morning to put in “sweat equity” as the preparation of the Rotary Park for the major upgrade is well underway.
With shovels in hand, wheelbarrows at the ready, a backhoe on hand and a dump truck filled with sand, the Rotarians went to work on a bright, sunny and warm Saturday morning ripping up old concrete slabs and carting them away.
According to the president of the San Ignacio Rotary Club Sheree Fuaki, the upgraded Rotary Park in Santa Elena town, including the new playground equipment, will be officially inaugurated on Wednesday, March 11.
In addition to the new playground equipment, the Rotary Club of San Ignacio was gifted $5,000 which was used, along with more “sweat equity” to erect a chain link fence around the park which is situated next to the fire station in Santa Elena town.
President Fukai says that all the work that is being done in preparing the park is so that the children can have a safe and a great place to play.
It is to the overall benefit of the community, and Fuaki says that “all in all what we are going to receive is going to far outweigh what we spend” in terms of preparation and acquisition of the material for the upgrading of the Rotary Park.
