Clock Dedication:
A Celebration of Rotary's Determination
to Bring a Landmark Back to Life!
17 Rotarians led by Josie Spinelli were on hand for the dedication ceremony 10/23/23. Rotary made a donation to help refurbish the clock so that it was restored to its early glory. Mayor Fanucci thanked Rotary, and Josie Spinelli in particular, for taking the lead on the project. A new plaque (pictured below) is now featured on the base of the clock. Rotary speakers included Josie, President Andy Browne and Ed Morvay with prayers offered by Pastor Heather Sudgen.
