At last night's Rotary meeting we passed around 2 sign up sheets for up
coming service events.
Five Senses Garden Saturday May 19 from 9-12:
Success! Look here at the happy workers!
This event will involve weeding, planting, edging, mulching and other
garden activities. The Five Senses Garden is part of the Capital Area Green
Belt and is a garden for the community. They need lots of people with the
up keep. If you are interested in coming please email me back so I can add
you to the sign up sheet. If you can only come part of the time that is
okay too! Feel free to invite family and friends.
In 1996 the Five Senses Garden was created as part of the Capital Area
Greenbelt in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and is open year round to the public.
It is located just past the Harrisburg East Mall off of Mall Road. The
Garden is structured so visitors can experience the nature through each of
their five senses: sight, sound, touch, taste and smell. The garden is
maintained by volunteers and it needs help from the local community so that
it can continue to thrive and be enjoyed by the public. The Harrisburg
Keystone Rotary Club will be volunteering at the garden on Saturday, May
19, 2012 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Members of the club will be weeding,
mulching, edging planting and doing a variety of other activities to spruce
up the garden beds so that the public as whole can enjoy their beauty. The
Harrisburg Keystone Club welcomes other Rotary Clubs and members of the
community to come out and participate at this event. This will be a great
opportunity to get outside and some much needed fresh air while at the same
time helping to make our local community a brighter prettier place
alongside friends!! For more information about the Five Sense Gardensplease visit the website: http://caga.org/five_senses_gardens.

This event will takes place instead of our club meeting that night. We will
all meet at the park. The Nativity School will be busing over their

we are planning for the students. If there is a particular activity you
would like to help with please email me so I can put your name down next to
it. If you are not sure which event but know you want to come to the event

Also, I want to remind everyone that if you participate in a Service Project
that counts as a meeting make up for your attendance record!!
