NOTHIN’ BUT NET! TROY ROTARY PARTNERS WITH LINCOLN COMMUNITY CENTER
July 25, 2014
TROY, OH <25 July 2014> - Citizens using the Lincoln Community Center basketball court can enjoy a game of hoops even more today, thanks to a joint project between the Troy Rotary Club and the Center. In June, members of Rotary worked with the staff at Lincoln Community Center replace old, worn out backboards and nets on the basketball court. They also installed new padding around the posts, ensuring that players will be safer during games. “Troy Rotary and Lincoln Community Center established a new partnership earlier this year,” said Don Willis, president of Rotary for 2014-15. “We were happy to work with the Center’s staff to make the basketball equipment more durable, and safer, when it’s used.”
Shane Carter, Director for Lincoln Community Center and a member of Troy Rotary, expressed his appreciation for the improvement project. “Keeping our facility up-to-date and ensuring the safety of our members when they come here is critical to our future success,” he explained.
Patrick Titterington, Rotarian and Director of Public Service and Safety for the City of Troy, is the one who coordinated the project as liaison for the Club’s partnership with the Center. He shared that, “It’s activities such as this one that get our members excited. It allows us to help make day-to-day life in Troy and the Miami County community more enjoyable. We hope to find other ways to lend a helping hand throughout the year.”
In addition to hands-on projects, the Troy Rotary Foundation distributed more than $11,000 in scholarships and community aid during the 2013-14 year. The members hope to expand the Foundation’s outreach in 2014-15 as another way to help those in need and to shape the lives of future civic leaders.
