A group of Johnston Rotarians installed new benches and picnic tables at Youth Homes of Iowa in Johnston on Saturday May 11th. The outdoor items were purchases with funds raised through the 2012 Rotary BBQ and with a matching grant from Rotary District 6000. The Rotarians that assisted in the installation were: Ken Andresen, Bob Bisenius, Mark Zirkelbach, Jack Gray, Steve Grasso, Dennis Dietz, Allen Meyer.
These guys were also assisted by some of the Youth Home residence who pitched in to help assembly the outdoor furniture. The project included concrete pads which were constructed by a former resident of the Youth Homes who now has a concrete construction business. Ace Hardware of Johnston provided use of an emergency generator. furnished concrete anchors and drill bits to complete the installation.
Annually the Johnston Rotary Club conducts the BBQ to raise funds to be used on locate projects. In the past proceeds from this annual fundraiser have gone to support the Teddy Bear Project for youth of deployed Iowa National Guard Troops and the Gold Star Museum.

On Jan 22nd, John Bouslog & Phil Hodgin of the Des Moines Noon Rotary club presented to the Johnston Rotary Club plans for the Rotary Riverwalk Park. During the 100 year anniversary of Rotary, the International President of Rotary asked each club to step out of its comfort zone and do a project fitting for the occasion. The Des Moines Club landed on the idea of creating a Rotary Park as part of the Des Moines River Walk.
They’ve continued to shepherd the idea over the years working through the many levels of private and public interests affiliated with the River Walk. After reviewing many sites, they’ve landed on the west end of the pedestrian bridge next to Wells Fargo Arena. The estimated cost of the project is $500,000. The project would consist of an oversized bobber and fishing pole. The bobber is roughly 12 feet in diameter and the fishing pole is roughly 84 feet long.
The park would be owned and maintained by the City of Des Moines. In exchange for its fund raising efforts and stewardship of the project, the Rotary would have naming rights for 20 years. The cost to renew the naming rights is estimated to be 5 to 10% of the project cost. The Des Moines Club is visiting metro area clubs and asking for their support for the project. They are hoping to begin construction this year.
