The weather was great for our annual hotdog feed last Tuesday at Lawrence Elementary. Special guests, Superintendent Winston Brooks and Admiral Windwagon Smith (our very own Bob Harbison) were present for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for our courtyard project at the school. This poem, written and read by Chesney Moon, a 5th grader at Lawrence, sums up why our members put so much effort into projects such as this:
In a space that was bare
Except for weeds everywhere
Rotarians worked long and hard
Where students can learn and have lots of fun
Reading and working in the warm sun
A classroom outside with a place for a garden
If allergies you have we beg your pardon
Butterflies and bees fly all around
Beetles and ladybugs crawls on the ground
There's a place to plant flowers or whatever you choose
Then sit back and enjoy their colorful hues
Tables for picnics if you want to eat
Benches to relax and rest your tired feet
We LOVE our new classrom under the sun
Thank you Rotarians for what you've done
