Saturday marked an historic day for a familiar piece of land in the City of Ludington. The former City Park is now known as Rotary Park thanks to the Rotary Club of Ludington and many dedicated people and donations. Dr. Rick Plummer was the Master of Ceremonies for the event that included speeches from James Jensen who gave a brief history of the property that is now Rotary Park. Linda O’Brien delivered details on the project. The keynote address was given by Michigan Council for Cultural Affairs member John Bracey. Following Bracey was artist and sculptor Tyson Snow, who created the beautiful new water feature in the heart of the park titled ‘Making Memories’. To close the ceremony Rotary Club President, Melissa Reed dedicated the park to the city of Ludington, with City Manager, John Shay accepting on behalf of the city. A great day for an historic piece of land. All involved invite you to enjoy the many events taking place this summer at the new Rotary Park in beautiful downtown Ludington.
