- Paradise Rotary Refurbishes Bus Stops
Paradise students who ride the bus will find newly repaired and painted bus stops when school reopens. With help from their friends, the Paradise Rotary club has cleaned, repaired and painted 14 local bus stops. The Lions club installed the bus stops years ago and contributed funds for the service project. In partnership with local organizations like the Paradise Irrigation District and Pacific Gas & Electric, PG&E and PID helped prepare the bus stops by hosing down the bus stops using their water trucks.
Paradise students also got involved. The Ridgeview Rangers, a group of students from Ridgeview High School dedicated to community service, and The Paradise Interact Club (Rotary Club for High School Students) helped repaint the bus stop shelters.
Rotarian Bob Di Pietro, who led the Rotary effort said that the project couldn’t have been achieved without the help of the community. The Rotary Club of Paradise meets every Thursday, noon at “The Place” the Paradise Lutheran Church next to Terry Ashe Park.
Shown from the left are Paradise Interact President Louise Norris-Smith, Rotarian Robert DiPietro, and Rotary Foreign Exchange Student Paulo from Mexico.
