The Rotary Club of Waldorf wishes to thank all who helped with our community service project April 28.
Members of the Waldorf Rotary and community partners helped to improve the grounds of the Stephen C. Starkey Memorial Playground at the Angel’s Watch women’s and children’s shelter. The playground originally was built by the Rotary Club in 1991 and was named after Stephen Starkey, who was the club’s charter president when it was founded in 1986.
This year, club members gathered with their rakes, shovels, axes, paintbrushes, chain saws, post-hole diggers and lawn mowers and converged on the playground. Aided by an advance team from Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative, who removed tree branches, and David Chase, a helper who sprayed for weeds and trimmed fence vines, the club was able to tackle the improvement project with vigor.
The club was aided by SMECO, Clinton Fence, The Jude House and Servants of Christ Ministries.
We are thankful to live in a community where people care so much about others. Rotary’s motto is “Service Above Self” and we continue to look for ways to better the world around us.
