Wenatchee Rotarians shared some great news at their noon meeting Thursday. The group announced the final tally from its January 26th Building Community Auction to benefit Lincoln Park. . .

The amount raised surpassed the group’s 115-thousand dollar goal. The proceeds will be used to fund improvements at Lincoln Park including a pump BMX track and second picnic shelter.

The money will also fund local college scholarships and community grants provided through Wenatchee Rotary’s Community Outreach Committee. The Community Outreach Committee has already committed to use some of its funding to join with other local Rotary clubs to sponsor Second Harvest food donations this summer and fall.
