The Rotary Sunshade Project


Participating Rotary Clubs:





A Rotary Foundation Project - 2021

Goal: To provide sun cover for students taking classes outside. This is a two part project. Part 1: WHES students designed and built an outdoor learning center for future classroom and reading activities. The design included a flower bed, walkways, a storage shed, a small green house, a reading area, and a teaching area. Part 2: Four area Rotary Clubs combined resources to build two sun shade structures to cover the teaching and reading areas. The clubs purchased the hardware and sun shades from Carolina Shade Sails, LLC. in Greensboro, NC.
