The Rotary Club of Hannibal presented a ceremonial check worth $70,000 to the city of Hannibal, representing the donation for the Rotary Pavilion.
The pavilion is a 40-foot octagon with several picnic tables located at Nipper Park on Glascock’s Landing. The Hannibal Parks & Recreation staff will maintain the pavilion and will rent it out for special events.
The fund-raising for the pavilion took place during the Rotary Club presidencies of Andy Straube and Heather Temple.
Temple said the pavilion will serve as a centerpiece of the entire riverfront. “We are honored to contribute something lasting for the Hannibal community. Future generations will see the donation for years to come.”
Rotary is a worldwide organization that provides humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Locally, the Rotary Club of Hannibal counts on financial support through several events: Rotary Riverfest, Harvest Hootenanny and Hannibal Folklife Festival.
Andy Straube, Mike Kettelkamp, Chad Collier, Stevens Plowman, Steve Yager, Mary Lynne Richards, Chris Callahan and Heather Temple participated in a ceremonial check presentation at the Rotary Pavilion. Collier and Richards represented the Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department.
