Scottsdale Rotarians enjoy ‘Day at the Park’


Members and guests of the Rotary Club of Scottsdale recently enjoyed a Rotary Day at the Park.

Carroll Huntress, Rotarian and owner of Scottsdale’s Sugar Bowl, provided all the food, while Rotarian Ken Brown and friend of club Rob Adler barbecued brats.

Rotarian Tom Krawczyk received an American flag that he donated in loving memory of Lyn Krawczyk, wife and mother to Laura, Jack and Amy and grandmother to all their kids.

The American Flag was flown at Scottsdale Rotary Park’s Unity Plaza from Oct. 27, 2014 to April 20, 2015.

Additionally, a tree donated by Rotarian Orme Lewis was planted at the park in loving of his wife Elizabeth B Lewis.

Scottsdale Rotary Park is an eight-acre oasis in the heart of Gainey Ranch. The park was built by members of the Rotary Club of Scottsdale and then donated to the City of Scottsdale.

The park features lighted walking paths, a children’s playground, rotary-themed bike rack, a greenbelt, picnic ramadas, barbeque grills, a restroom facility and the world’s first plaza designed in the shape of the Rotary symbol.

Rotary Plaza is located at 7959 E. Doubletree Ranch Road, Scottsdale.
