Over 100 Rotary volunteers turn out to help the Town of Lyons.
On Saturday, November 8th, 2014, Littleton Rotary volunteers joined forces with Rotarians from throughout the greater metro area to help restore the Lyons Town Hall Plaza which was destroyed by the massive floods of September 2013. The event was sponsored by the Honeywell’s Hometown Solutions corporate citizenship program.
Rotary learned of the need for volunteers and immediately recognized the opportunity to engage Rotarians from throughout the Front Range. Organized into two work shifts, the volunteers painted the exterior of the Lyons Town Hall, moved tons of landscape gravel and top soil, and began installation of stucco screen on the building’s exterior.
Thanks to the efforts and talents of two CU-Denver post-grad landscape architecture students and their professor, a beautiful park-like plaza was designed for the Town Hall property. Using the native Lyons sandstone, the plaza is bordered by walls with wide planters. The open area within the Plaza will have flagstone pathways and planters containing perennial flowering bulbs. The community can once again be proud of its municipal facility and is a welcoming place for all.
Thanks to all Littleton Rotary volunteers for providing “Service Above Self” to our fellow citizens.
