Rotary Club cleans up Rotary Park

The Rotary Club of Kirksville held it's annual clean up of Rotary Park early Saturday morning.

While the weather was still sunny, about 30 people helped to rake leaves, put mulch around trees, and paint the shelters to help keep the park in good shape for the community of Kirksville to continue enjoying the park.

"It's one of Kirksville's greatest natural resources and it's important to have time and effort to keep it that way. It's a place where people can enjoy actively and get a good spiritual sense of nature," said Rotary Park Committee Chair Ron Gaber

Students from Truman State and A.T. Still University also came out to help support the Rotary Club.

Rotary Park is a special place to the members because it was given to the city by the club many years ago.
