SNELLVILLE – The Rotary Club of Gwinnett Sunrise has begun a concerted effort of community involvement with the completion of two successful projects.
The first was a clean-up effort at the house of a local resident who, due to poor health, could not meet the city’s Code Enforcement guidelines. A team of Rotary members assembled at the property recently and went to work cleaning and beautifying the property to bring it into compliance and put smiles on the faces of the homeowner and the neighbors. Snellville Public Works helped with power equipment and the use of a truck and the Rotarians provided the time and effort to improve the property.
The club’s second project was a clean-up and landscaping effort at one of Snellville’s busiest intersections: Wisteria Drive at Highway 78. Accomplished the morning of June 10, a group of club members collected litter and debris, weeded and dressed up all sides of the intersection helping the town to look better and making travel safer and less unsightly. The Snellville Police Department provided traffic control to make the whole worksite a safe one.
The intrepid Sunrise Rotarians plan to continue their community efforts on a regular schedule with another property clean-up scheduled for July 8. The city appreciates all the volunteers and thanks the Rotarians for their efforts and for their dedication to carrying on the community spirit of the Rotary organization.
