On April 13 at 5:30 pm OKC Sunrise Rotary Club will hold a Community “Listening Meeting” at Will Rogers Housing next to Rotary Park (park is at 1922 Westwood) as a part of a Community Assessment focused on Old Rotary Park and the nearby neighborhoods near it. Sunrise is collaborating with other Club’s planning efforts to protecting and beautifying the damaged 1922 Rotary Monument Wall and pavilion there on Westwood, an area tagged by graffiti and challenges. The monument, which proclaims “Service Not Self” is thought to be one of the oldest surviving Rotary monuments in America.

Likely service projects from the Listening Session would also engage the Housing Authority, the City’s Parks and Rec staff, a new elementary school, and others with a stake in the future of old Rotary Park and its environs.
