CHARLES CITY, IA – The City of Charles City is breaking ground on one of their largest club projects in decades.
The Lions Club is already starting to dig for their newly renovated rose garden.
Here is a picture of what the garden will look like.
The goal is to have more than 100 roses planted, along with a pergola.
There will be an educational element as well that will inform people what kind of rose they’re seeing.
The Project Manager Jeff Otto for the garden says he’s excited for the community to see what the lions club is bringing to town.
“I think just the exposure of this corner gives the Lions Club great exposure in the community. It will just tie it all together. The path going through it will keep people closer to the roses, which weren’t there before,” said Otto.
Otto tells us an anonymous donor gave more than 25,000 dollars toward the project.
They’re hoping to have it finished by Father’s Day.
