The fine local Rotarians asked us to create a new sign for their Arboretum that was originally created through funding from the Lawrence Rotary Club, the Jayhawk Breakfast Rotary Club and the Lawrence Central Rotary Club in celebration of the centennial anniversary of Rotary International in 2005.
Besides trees with identification markers, the arboretum also consists of walking paths, a pergola, a gazebo and a Waterwise Xeriscape Garden.
What was missing was a hearty sign to welcome people. This piece is ‘mixed media’ in effect as the emblem is a wonderful bronze inset.
The picture here is of most of the 80 students volunteered their morning to help with landscaping projects in conjunction with Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department. The students were participants in the Northeast Kansas Rotary Leadership Camp.
Hats off to all!
