Rotary Week of Service
The Superstition Mountain Rotary service project of painting hand railings at the Apache Junction High School was a successful effort. Several Rotary members came to the High School on Friday and Saturday (April 23 & 24). Everyone grabbed paint & paintbrushes, and did what was needed to get the hand railings painted. Additional community members also came to join in. As an added bonus, the High School football team came and joined the volunteers---(the Club sends a special thanks to the football team for showing up and participating. Their youthful enthusiasm really helped to move the painting project along to completion.) The finished painting effort made the hand railings both look better, as well as be safer. Thank you to everyone for making the project a success.
