ROCHELLE — Rochelle Rotary Club announced Monday they are donating $13,000 to the Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District’s REC Center, over a 20-year period.
The REC Center opened Dec. 1 and will be Rochelle’s centralized hub to improve the quality of life for the citizens of the area. Rotary and The REC Center engaged in this partnership to benefit the community by building friendships and goodwill.
The REC allows for a variety of activities – including football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, softball, baseball and golf with the indoor turf and multipurpose flooring in the fieldhouse; to swimming, water aerobics and swim lessons in the Aquatic Center. REC passes for the month of December are available online as well as court and field rentals.
“The Park District is thankful for the support from Rotary” said Park District Commissioner, Jodie Hart. “We are grateful for the Rotary’s commitment to leading the way in strengthening the Rochelle community.”
“The Rochelle Rotary Club strives to live up to our core tenet of ‘Service above Self.’ We follow the Four Way Test in our decision making and our daily lives: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Is it beneficial to all concerned?,” Rotary Club President Greg Folmar explained. “We are very happy to partner with the RTHS Interact Club and the Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District to both support this community endeavor and showcase our values to those using the Rec Center.”
