Guest A Better Region 8: Dedicating Centennial Plaza

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -I’m John Deacon, District Governor of Rotary District 6150 and a member of the Rotary Club of Jonesboro.

This Friday we invite you to help us dedicate our newest project.

Centennial Plaza is a public outdoor gathering space for small concerts, art shows and other community events downtown.

The Jonesboro Rotary Club provides funding for scholarships, non-profits, and projects such as Rotary Centennial Park at Craighead Forest Park.

Now - Centennial Plaza is our gift to this great city as our Rotary Club celebrates 100 years in Jonesboro.

Rotarians are passionate volunteers (collectively 1.2M worldwide) that give of their time, resources and talents while tackling humanitarian projects across the globe.

Centennial Plaza is a collaboration of multiple local partnerships with the City of Jonesboro, contractors, suppliers and individual donors, all who have given generously to transform this vision into a living legacy that connects our community for years to come.

Please join us for the dedication ceremony this Friday at 4 p.m., followed by the Oldies Show at the Forum at 7 p.m.

Centennial Plaza is located at the corner of Church and Monroe Streets in downtown Jonesboro.

Supporting Rotary and all service organizations in our community makes this a Better Region 8.
