The weather cooperated on Saturday July 16th. We moved a lot of mulch finishing a pathway and evening out a portion of the parking are. There is still more to do, but the 5 Rotarians contributed 10 hours of labor to the effort. Plus, we got to create our own version of American Gothic.
Besides some additional mulching, the hedgerow can use another trimming. Perhaps we have another visit to the garden in our future. In addition to the individual plots, a section is dedicated to growing produce for the Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry. We are happy to assist the gardeners whenever we can. 
We had a great time staffing the beer tent at Windmill City Fest. Over 20 Rotarians and family members helped make the event a success. We checked IDs, sold drink tickets, and served beer to a large and very responsible crowd. A sincere thank you to the Batavia Park District for organizing the fest and giving us an opportunity to increase Rotary’s visibility.
 
 
Windmill City Fest is an annual summer event. It is hosted by the Batavia Park District and typically runs the second weekend in July.
