The Caesar Rodney Rotary Club completed construction of a 675 sq ft timber framed shade porch at the Easter Seals Camp Fairlee Manor near Chestertown, MD. The project was completed by a generous grant from Rotary District 7630 as well as considerable donations from local businesses: MDavis, Inc., Spacecon, LLC, MacIntosh Engineering, GTA Associates, Heritage Concrete, East Coast Erectors, and Shone Lumber. Under the project leadership of John Gooden of MDavis, Inc. and President-Elect of Caesar Rodney Rotary, Club Members volunteered well over 500 hours to the project.

The shade porch provides a pool-side respite location from the sun for the camper, a controlled viewing area for the caregiver and a break from sudden inclement weather for all. It also allows for additional recreational activities to be introduced pool side. Overall, it enhances the campers experience and provides an additional resource for caregivers to reach their mission.
