This year’s Pride Day 2016 ( Lorain County)- thankfully – found the volunteers not having to fight Mother Nature , unlike 2014

However true to form we had Lorain Rotarians continuing their mission

“Phil Dore, a former president of the Lorain Rotary Club, was part of a contingent that undertook the sprucing up of Settlers Watch in Lorain. He said that the newly minted park is just up the road from his home, but the rotary club has been deeply involved in the park since the beginning.
“We’ve been doing this now since 2009,” he said while taking a short break from his work. “

Charleston Village Society http://www.loraincounty.com/charlestonlorai/ is very fortunate in the continuing loyalty of our volunteers to the area known as Settlers’ Watch,

This is a huge green space- taken out of the rubbish dump and tangled growth of vacant lots .

The transformation could not have been even remotely possible without the partnership of the City of Lorain , the help of Lorain County Solid Waste and community donations and the volunteers from the neighborhood, CVSI Executive Board and so many others who quietly give back, including our constant gardener. Without Joe and his love of the space we would be in dire straits. Another successful Pride Day 2016.

    It finally has evolved into something beautiful since the days of TRASH DUMPING…. Congratulations on a job well done!

    you were so much a part of this do you remember back in the early 90’s you wanted that lot as a green space, the owner offered to sell it to us but we couldn’t raise the 60,000 needed . well took a long time but I believe this is one unique space to the city / county and state
