VERO BEACH — The members of the Sunrise Rotary Vero Beach Club donated $5,000 worth of trees, a total of 61, to the School Board for planting at the Freshman Learning Center.
The members of Sunrise Rotary Vero Beach have committed to planting one tree in Indian River County for each of its 90-plus members by June 30. To help attain that goal, members were pleased to donate 61 “Friendship Trees” to the Freshman Learning Center campus in the name of fellowship, friendship, environmental stewardship and community service.
This project serves to advance the on-going goal of Sunrise Rotary Vero Beach to support education, promote a healthy environment, and improve the quality of life for people in our community.
Sunrise Rotary applauds the School District’s vision to educate and inspire every student to be successful, as well as their mission to serve all students with excellence. Sunrise Rotarians want to help in that vision and mission by surrounding county schools with beneficial landscapes that will have positive impacts on student attitudes and performance.
“Our focus this year is on enhancing the Freshman Learning Center’s storm-battered landscape,” the club said.
