Oceana Boulevard Beautification Project

 

Terra Nova Soccer Teams join Rotary for Beautification Project

Members of the Terra Nova Varsity and Junior Varsity Soccer teams joined members of the Rotary Club of Pacifica to begin the beautification of Oceana Blvd. from Manor Drive to the Highway 1 entrance at Monterey Road. Soccer players, wearing their team jerseys, took picks and shovels in hand to dig holes 
along the street frontage that will be filled with new trees to be planted by the Rotary. Players were accompanied by their hard working coaches, Carlos Bovar, Varsity coach and Manny Peix, Jr. Varsity coach for the team’s community service project.

 

 

“We Rotarians could never have dug these holes so well in this amount of time. Having the soccer teams, and their youthful strength and exuberance, join us to work on this project was truly a gift of community service. We are really thankful for their efforts” commented Linda Jonas, chair of Rotary’s 
beautification project.

The beautification of Oceana Blvd. is being sponsored by the Rotary Club of Pacifica, as a part of the ‘Keep Pacifica Beautiful’ program of the Pacifica Beautification Advisory Committee. In addition to trees Rotary will be planting low maintenance, drought tolerant ground cover along the entire stretch of the 
Oceana Blvd. site. Later this spring Ocean Shore School will be partnering with Rotary to add several art features, designed and created by Ocean Shore students, to the streetscape.
