Rotary clubs build bus shelters

Members of the South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Douglas Rotary Clubs, who teamed up to build bus shelters at Lakeland Village and Tahoe Senior Plaza, are, from left, John Upton, Bill Kaster, Art Roybal, Hanna Chrostowski, Kim Copel, Robert Plimpton, Shawn Rowles and Bob Taylor.

The two Rotary clubs on the south end of Lake Tahoe joined forces in recent weeks to construct two much-needed bus shelters. One is in front of Lakeland Village and the other serves the Senior Plaza near Barton Hospital.

The Rotary clubs recognized a need for the shelters, especially during the winter months when the cold and blowing snow can make waiting for public transportation an uncomfortable ordeal.

Both Rotary clubs joined forces in the project in celebration of the 100-year anniversary of Rotary, an international service organization of 1.2 million men and women in 31,200 clubs throughout 166 countries. Each year the South Lake Tahoe Rotary Club, chartered in 1946, and the Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club, chartered in 1962, are involved in many local and worldwide community service projects including scholarships to South Lake Tahoe and Douglas County schools. Major annual fund-raisers include the Great Car Sweepstakes and the St. Patrick’s Day Wine Tasting and Corn Beef Feed.
