Another reminder of our 100 year history.

Last week I mentioned the community garden project  started on 10 acres of the Longcoy farm. It’s great success as a Kent Rotary project can be summed up by the following statistics: The garden had yielded 250 bushels of tomatoes, 400 bushels of potatoes, 4000 heads of cabbage, and a goodly number of small vegetables in corresponding qualities. In the final statement chairman John Salter said that the greatest benefits derived from the garden were, first, it enabled the unemployed to help themselves; secondly, it gave them something to do, thereby keeping their minds from their troubles; thirdly, it created a feeling of goodwill and better understanding in the community. What a great project our club performed for our community!

Another moment in our club’s history.
