Metro Receives Grant
On August 31, Rotary District 6080 announced that Columbia Metro Rotary was awarded a District Simplified Grant in the amount of $1,000. These funds will enable a Rain and Butterfly garden to be constructed at the Park Avenue Child and Family Development Center Playground (below)! This project will have a positive impact on the students we currently reach through our Partner in Education relationship with the Columbia Public Schools’ Title I Program. In addition, Columbia Metro Rotary will provide over $1,700 in matching funds to complete this project.
A special thank you to Andrew Stone for authoring this grant proposal, and to all Rotarians who assisted in the application assembly and process.
