The Kings Bay Rotary Club recently came together to clean up property at the home of Nina Wisniewski in Crystal River.
Ms. Wisniewski's yard had become overgrown. Rotary member Jim Farley, who is Crystal River's police chief, headed up the work force in removing scrub trees from the yard, repairing and replacing fencing, taking out heavy bush growth and pulling vines from the roof.
A special thanks goes to member C.L. Callway and Withlacoochee River Electric for their help in clearing and chipping trees and bushes.
Kings Bay Rotary has become active in local cleanup efforts.
The club is an active force with Keep Citrus Beautiful Inc. For information on Kings Bay Rotary Club, call Curtis A. Rich Sr. at (352) 422-0226.
