New Life For 58 Year Old Rotary Pavilion
Phase I of the Pavilion Project was completed Friday, May 17, with Rotary volunteer power. The first coat of stain went on smoothly, thanks to several willing workers. It was completed in just under three hours on a beautiful day, according to Rotarian Peter Sinnott. Phase 2, the second coat of stain, was applied on Monday, May 20.
The pavilion was built in 1955 as a Rotary Club of Estes Park project to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Rotary International, the world’s first service club. The structure is located in the Cherokee Draw Day Use area, near Highway 36 and Fourth Street in Estes Park. On April 25, the Rotary Club of Estes Park presented the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District a check for $1,000 to help purchase supplies for the renovation and a pledge of Rotary volunteers to help with the project. The old pavilion will be good for another 50 years!
