The Morristown Rotary Club is marking it's centennial with a $90,000 donation to the Town of Morristown to build a pavilion at Lidgerwood Park.


This pavilion is one of the ways we are celebrating 100 years of service to the community as well as 100 years of continuing service into the future. - Steve Ellerman, President

 

Please Join Us in the Celebration! 

Purchase a custom-engraved brick at the Rotary Pavilion being built at Lidgerwood Park, Morristown’s most utilized park.  A brick path will surround the pavilion and will have six distinct sections, each corresponding to one of our six areas of service:
 
  • Culture
  • Education
  • Health
  • Hunger
  • Veterans
  • Youth

Engraved bricks will make an enduring legacy for you, or for a special event or person in your life, or an institution you wish to honor. 

Brick can be purchased for the following:
$100           4x8”         4 lines of text, with 21 characters per line
$250           8x8”         8 lines of text, with 21 characters per line
If you are interested in a larger display, please contact Donna Orr at djorr54@gmail.com.
