Since The Rotary Club Of Roxby District was formed 10 years ago, they've made their presence known. No doubt you've seen their bright orange shirts at all sorts of community events, cooking BBQs or lending a hand wherever they can.
To commemorate their 10 years of service to Roxby Downs, Andamooka, and Woomera, Roxby Council has decided to give the park on Curdimurka street a name: Rotary Park.
"It's not just an acknowledgement of our current members," says Rotary Club Of Roxby District President-Elect Sandy Sumsion, "it's an acknowledgment of the effort all our past members have put in as well.
"Over the 10 years we've been a club there's been about 65 people who have been members at one time or another, and some of those people have given one year, or three years, or seven years."
"[The Park] will give [Rotary] a bit of encouragement and some recognition for their contribution to the town." Roxby Council Chief Executive Roy Blight told RoxFM's Council Catch-Up on Thursday morning.
"Volunteer commitments are very important to the quality of life, whether it be through sport, community services, environment; there's a whole raft of different contributions."
In addition to all the work Rotary Club Of Roxby District has put into the soon-to-be-named Rotary Park, from the addition of seats for parents and helping to finance thw fence surrounding the park, Rotary will be installing a double electric BBQ for the public to use.
Looking forward, "this December will be the 10th year the Rotary Club Of Roxby District has coordinated the pageant, and it's also the 30th birthday for the town of Roxby Downs," said Ms. Sumsion, "so we're going to try and add a few things and make it bigger and better than ever!"
