Thank you to Alex Fahrenthold for the excellent craftsmanship on the Rotary sponsored bicycle rack that will find a permanent home at the Bastrop Public Library. The rack is inspired by the iconic Bastrop bridge on Chestnut Street.
The Rotary Club of Bastrop County has installed a new park bench adjacent to “Smitty” the nation’s largest gingerbread man, in Smithville. In the peaceful park where Smitty resides is a tranquil garden with gingerbread mosaic walking paths, and art abounds. It was the perfect place to put a Rotary branded park bench for others to relax in the gardens. The Smithville Chamber of Commerce and Mayor were in attendance for the installation. We are grateful for our community projects which bring value to the County. Next time you’re in Smithville, take a respite in the gardens next to the Chamber of Commerce. You’ll know right where to sit!
