Ribbon Cutting: Rotary Peace Garden

Riverfront Children’s Center

 

Comments: Carol Kent, Rotary Club of Mystic

May 19, 2017

 

The development of the Riverfront Children’s Center (RCC) Peace Garden is a project of the Rotary clubs of Mystic, Groton, and The Stoningtons with an added donation from the Groton Parks Foundation and matching fund from Rotary District 7980.

 

Rotary is an international organization with 1.2 million members participating in 35,250 Rotary Clubs world-wide. All clubs have the opportunity to apply for national and international grants. In the case of the Peace Garden, local club funds applied for matching district funds and with a budget of $12,000 plus have developed this wonderful contemplative spot for listening to stories, bird watching and practicing the skills learned in their RCC “mindfulness” curriculum that is part of the social/emotional development teaching of the center.

 

The project began with a wish of Joan Butler, a Mystic Rotarian and supporter of RCC, to identify a RCC project. Sue Corrice, a recently retired 20+ year leader of RCC, worked with a Rotary steering committee of participating clubs to develop this project as an adjunct to the social/emotional development RCC curriculum. Mary Richardson, owner of Burnett’s Landscaping and a Rotarian, worked with the committee to design the resulting garden. Over the winter Lea Doran, Groton Rotary, worked with the children of RCC and volunteers to produce alphabet and number pavers that have become part of the garden.

 

On May 19, 2017 an official ribbon cutting was held to open the garden. Participating in the ribbon cutting were:  Betty Smith, incoming president of Mystic Rotary, Lea Doran, Groton Rotary and Marti Bradshaw, The Stoningtons Rotary.
