The Aberdeen Rotary Club, in conjunction with the University of Idaho Extension, and the City of Aberdeen maintain a rose garden as a way to improve the appearance of the community. This garden is also used for purposes of horticultural education. Continued maintenance is required to advance this community improvement project. The University of Idaho has installed posts for an ornamental fence around the garden. The Rotary club's share of this project is to install a chain to complete the fence and construct an arch entry way to the garden. As part of the project, an artistic signpost will also be constructed and installed. Accomplishment of this project will improve the quality of life for the citizens of Aberdeen.
Installation of chain fencing, entry archway, and artistic signpost will be completed by April of 2020.
Utilization of Funds:
Purchase of chain to complete the fence - $400
Purchase of painting supplies to paint the fence - $30
Purchase of metal for construction of archway and signpost - $70
Additional costs associated with the project will be covered by the Aberdeen Rotary Club. It is projected that an additional $200 will be needed to supplement the purchase of metal, concrete for installing the archway and signpost, and signage.
Two Aberdeen High School students will be recruited to work on the project as a way of completing their required senior projects. Members of the Aberdeen Rotary Club will manage the budget, purchase materials for the project, supervise the work on-site, and provide project labor, as needed.
