17 Trees planted at Coconut Creek City Hall

The members of our Club were honored to install 17 Bald Cypress Trees around the lake at the City Hall complex in Coconut Creek. Originally this project was conceived back in 2017 to be a ‘one tree per club member’ installation. After the MSD shooting our club chose to plant these trees in honor of those 17 lives that were cut short on that fateful Valentines Day. Our hope is that some measure of solace and beauty may be restored to the community as these trees grow and blossom. We had a great turn out and even though not all of our club members could attend this was truly a ‘all hands on deck’ project as there was much planning and some fund raising that went on to see this project to its completion. The members of ‘The Creek’ as we affectionately call ourselves are a fun-loving group of local business and community leaders (or leaders-to-be) that seek out Service projects that are in line with Rotary Internationals motto of ‘Service Above Self’.
