Rotary members fix up Angelus' nature trail
Rotary Club of Port Richey recently helped improve the nature trail at the Angelus in Hudson, by enlarging the koi pond at the entry to the trail, building a bridge and installing a custom-built wheelchair swing on the trail. Workers on the project included Holly Sliz and Damien D'Ascenzio, club president; Rich Sliz, Donna Leonard, Wayne Berryhill, Jinny Berryhill, Tekoa Bean, Perry Bean, Devin McWilliams, Sam Bean, Melissa Fahy, Gil McWilliams and Tina Farrell.
With the help of Rotary District 6950's matching grant program, the club was pleased to help the Angelus continue to improve its grounds. The Angleus provides a home and care for 32 full-time residents.
Special thanks went to Steve Farrell and his Team Farrell crew for their work on the bridge and wheelchair swing and to Angelus executive director Joe Neri, who ran the bobcat to move dirt from the koi pond after grilling lunch for the group.
