Redwood City's Parks and Recreation Department is $20,000 richer today, thanks to the local Rotary Club.
At Monday night's City Council meeting, Lilia Ledezma, president of the Rotary Club, presented Chris Beth, Director of Parks, Recreation and Community Service, a $20,000 check from the proceeds of the Rotary Farmers Market, "as part of the great partnership created to launch the market back in May of 2012 in downtown Redwood City, every Tuesday night from 4-8 p.m.," Ledezma told Patch.
"Both groups worked hard to make the market a success," Ledezma added.
"Rotarians worked months before the opening of the market to recruit vendors and develop a marketing campaign, and throughout the market season, to manage it. Meanwhile, Parks and Rec staff worked long hours every Tuesday from May through September setting up and tearing down everything needed for the market to operate, providing beautiful white tents that made the market look clean and beautiful, and the gigantic inflatable slide that made the market so attractive to families with children."
The Rotary Farmers Market will begin again in May of 2013.
