Centennial Project | Children's Storytelling Deck at the Klyde Warren Park
The Rotary Club of Dallas was founded in 1911, club number 39. It was the first Rotary Club in Texas. In this century, thousands of members have belonged, providing service to Dallas and the world through projects and contributions of millions of dollars to better the world we live in.
Our mission is to provide service to others, particularly our children, who are our future, while adhering to the highest ethical standards. In keeping with our tradition of service in the Dallas Community, we have commemorate in 2011 a new century of Rotary in our community, a special Rotary section of the Children’s area in the new Kylde Warren Park above the Woodall Rodgers Freeway.
The area features an inviting play area for children to gather and learn in a safe environment. This project will benefit our Centennial Children’s Park Learning Tree Section Project and provide an area to Dallas children to let their imagination run wild and enjoy the outdoors in a safe environment.
"The Rotary has a long legacy of leadership and community giving," said Ben Casey, Past President of the Rotary Club of Dallas. "The Rotary’s emblem in the storytelling deck will be a physical marker sharing our club’s core values that we hope will attract a new generation of Rotary members."
