Rotary Club Helps Enhance Children First Playground

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY APR 8, 2017

The Rotary Club of Sarasota granted $8,000 to Children First for improvements to their playground by installing a Merry-Go-Cycle, magnet wall and large timber stackers. The new equipment, which will be used by children ages 3-5 years old, is developmentally appropriate and encourages children to learn through play as well as develop fine and gross motor skills. After the items were installed, Children First used the opportunity not only to thank the Rotary Club but also to honor longtime supporter, Jo Rutstein who served on the Children First board of directors from 2009-2014, and was board chair in 2012. To honor Jo's contributions, Children First installed a sign near the new playground equipment, naming the area Jo's Place.
