City of Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane recently took part in a ceremony to dedicate the Rotary Clock at City of Scottsdale’s Civic Center Mall.

Rotary clock 1The mayor thanked the Rotary Club of Scottsdale members for their community service and for gifting the clock to the City of Scottsdale.
The event was attended by club Rotarians, guests, city officials and representatives from Team Fishel and CrownCastle, the project’s construction management firms.

The Rotary Clock became a reality via the dedicated project leadership of club member Jason Washo and through the generous donations to the Scottsdale Rotary Foundation by many club members, area businesses, and club friends. No dollars were contributed by the City of Scottsdale.

The clock’s iconic design is based on the historic Howard Post Clock and was manufactured by the Electric Time Company based in Medfield, Mass.

At the dedication ceremony, Rotary Club of Scottsdale President Tim Baughman stated, “the clock will be a reminder of Rotary’s timeless dedication to service above self.”
