Saturday, February 6th, University of Arizona Rotaract members with help from Tucson Kino Rotarians cleaned a large part of the Turquoise Trail in Downtown Tucson. The Rotaractors, under the leadership of President Andy Le, have adopted cleaning the Trail as a Service Project. Eleven members from both groups took part. A Rotaract Club is for young, usually college-age or older members. Members of Rotaract Clubs enjoy full membership in Rotary International.
The Turquoise Trail meanders around 23 various sites of interest including Hotel Congress, Armory Park, the Pima County Courthouse, and Fox Tucson Theatre. A turquoise-colored line keeps walkers on track, while plaques along the way provide historical information.
Some of the members also visited the Tucson’s January 8 Memorial. While not completed, much can be seen and experienced by looking through the fences. The Memorial is directly behind the Old Pima County Courthouse, one of the stops on the Trail.
After the cleanup, the Rotaractors went shopping for donuts!
