Plymouth Rotary Celebrates 40 Years
The Plymouth Rotary Club celebrated their 40 year anniversary at Zachary Playfield over the weekend. In honor of 40 years, they planted 40 trees in Northwest Plymouth and dedicated musical instruments in the park.
Members founded the club in 1978 as the Minnetonka-Plymouth Rotary Club. As Plymouth grew, the club did too. In 2006, the name changed to Plymouth Rotary Club.
Club members have raised more than $400,000 over the years for community service projects at home and abroad.
“The thing I love about Rotary especially is that we give back to the local community,” said Plymouth Mayor Jeff Wosje. He is also a Rotary club member. “We give back to the larger, international community too.”
Rotary Clubs are dedicated to a mission of eradicating polio worldwide. Locally, the Plymouth club partners with Allina Hospitals and Clinics for Heart Safe Plymouth. The project teaches people in Plymouth how to do CPR and how to use an AED.
