Rotarians cut ribbon on all-inclusive playground in Wiese Park


The ribbon was cut Wednesday on the Perry Rotary Club’s all-inclusive, adaptive-equipped playground in Wiese Park.

Rotary Club President Lynn Hanna was joined by some 20 fellow Rotarians and a large number of supporters from the community for the midday ceremony.

Rotarian Dirk Cavanaugh, who spearheaded fundraising for the $200,000 project, welcomed visitors and thanked the many donors to the project. Cavanaugh said the delay in the project caused by COVID-19 led to significant cost increases and necessitated additional fundraising.

  • Bock Family Foundation, Grant $5,000
  • Perry Iowa Rotary Club, Donation $10,000
  • Rotary Foundation, Grant $4,000
