On Saturday May 7,2022 a bunch of Rotarians and friends of Rotary set out to paint the entire shelter at Rotary Park, inside and out.
This included Cody Steed and his son and Josh Piascik from Sherwin-Williams Company. They also brought all the paint and materials.
This is what it looked like before we attacked it!
And, so it begins!
Josh Steed from Sherwin-Williams and Rotarian Bruce Fischer have at it.
Incoming District 7850, Governor, Caroline Earle.
President, Tony Campos.
Barre Area Development Executive Director, Cody Morrison helped out as well.
Josh Piascik from Sherwin- Williams.
Detail man, detail!
District Governor, Michael Carrier wields a mean roller!
Rotarian, Joe Shadroui can hold his own on the roller too!
Caroline & Bruce at parade rest!
Joe, Cody & Karl have at it!
Mike & Caroline put up the banner!
The gang is all here!
And this is what it looked like when we were done!
We thank all the volunteers.
The park was built by the Barre Club back in 1987 near the Barre City swimming pool. and gets a ton of use during the warmer months.
You can rent the park from the city by calling 802.476.0257.
On May 20, 2022 Tom Babic, Ted Goulette & Karl A Rinker removed all the sod around all the blacktop in preparation for seal coating it.
Ted wields a mean shovel!
THE FINAL PRODUCT. Tom & Joe did a great job on the seal-coating!
And, we back-dragged the parking lot with a small bucket loaded to fill in some of the puddles.
Joe installs the new sign. A huge shout out to Jeff Blow of Jet Printing Services for the donation of the sign.
The old!
And, the NEW!
