Fun, food, and activities will highlight the Rotary Centennial Park Celebration from 8am till noon at Access 6 in Craighead Forest Park on Saturday, September 17.
The event will celebrate the impact that Rotary Centennial Park, which contains the city’s first handicapped-accessible playground, has had on the community since its opening in 2005.
Have fun on the newly installed artificial turf around the play area, enjoy the inflatables provided by Hijinx, checkout a book from the Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library’s Bookmobile and participate in a fun run/walk around the 2.4-mile chat track. From 10:30 to noon, those attending may grab a hot dog and a drink from the Jonesboro Radio Group’s Big Family Grill and enjoy some Andy’s Frozen Custard. Admission is FREE and the food is FREE!
Jonesboro’s three Rotary Clubs, the City of Jonesboro and numerous corporate and individual sponsors cooperated to create the park that opened in 2005 to provide children of all abilities an accessible place for outdoor play and to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Rotary International. All media is invited to attend. Local and State level dignitaries will be in attendance, as well as Rotarians from both Jonesboro Rotary Clubs. Club Presidents Will Branch and Joseph Richmond will be available for interviews.
