On Saturday, the Antioch Rotary Club performed a service project where they painted the Antioch Historical Society Gazebo in the City of Antioch.
The project was planned in the spring, however, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the project had been on hold for many months according to club President Tirrell Muhammad.
“Each year, we try and perform a couple of service projects around the community that will help beautify an area, work an event or help create an impact in the community such as a bench or plant trees,” stated Muhammad. “In this case, we needed something where we could kind of spread out and still do the work. Painting the gazebo was a no brainer because it needed to be painted and we could still social distance away from the community.”
Muhammad hopes once the further COVID-19 restrictions lift, people will be able to use the Gazebo for a variety of events.
The paint was donated by Kelley Moore Paint, while Rotarians provided tools and sundries to complete the project.
The project was coordinated by Rotarian Tom Jenkins and last week, prep work had been completed to allow Rotarians to paint. That included dry rot repair, pressure washing and cleaning the gazebo.
