With a Rotary District 5440 grant and funds raised by the Morrill Rotary Club, plus reduced cost labor through Russell’s Excavation and labor assistance from the Village of Morrill crew, there is a new sidewalk along the entire south edge of the grounds of the Morrill Elementary School. It looks very nice and is a huge improvement over the bumpy and weedy walkway that has been in place there for years.

Morrill Rotary Sidewalk Cornerstone for Project at Morrill ElementaryAt each end of the sidewalk, commemorative stones, donated by Herstead Monument Company, were mortared in place to permanently mark this project of the Morrill Rotary Club.

Though small, the Morrill Rotary Club has been very active in the community, providing a lovely gazebo at the Jeanne Steen Veterans Memorial Park on Highway 26 in Morrill, donating scholarships every year, providing RYLA Camp adventures for local students, dictionaries for third graders and other improvements in Morrill.

If you get a chance, take a stroll down this new expanse of sidewalk in Morrill. It is a great improvement to the area!
