The Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) contributed $225,000 to the Place for Life campaign to create a significant project which will also commemorate their Centennial Anniversary. The Rotary (1918) Centennial Hub is a three kilometre trail and community entrance near Howard Avenue and Laurier Drive which will connect the Chrysler Canada Greenway, Herb Gray Parkway Trails. Town of Tecumseh Trails and the Town of LaSalle Trails.
“In searching for legacy projects that would reflect our Club’s 100 year commitment of service to this community, we are pleased to be able to partner with Essex Region Conservation to complete this amazing trail project as well as to provide a meeting place for everyone at the Rotary (1918) Centennial Hub while enjoying their time on the trails,” said Janet Kelly, Chair of the Rotary (1918) Legacy Committee. In addition to the Rotary (1918) Centennial Hub, a project will be undertaken at the Windsor Riverfront.
“This contribution from Rotary (1918) truly turns the community’s vision of a region connected by trails into a reality,” said Susan Stockwell Andrews, President. “This project is incredibly complex due to the number of partners and landowners involved, and we are extremely grateful to Rotarians for their generousity in making it happen.”
Rotary (1918) is the largest Rotary Club in District 6400.
