The Grand Junction Rotary Club is celebrating it's 100th birthday, and what better way to do so then presenting Hospice and Palliative Care of Western Colorado with $100,000. Wednesday, at Two Rivers Convention Center, Rotary Club President Dan Roberts gave the final $50,000 payment on its $100,000 pledge to Hospice and Palliative Care.
Rotary Clubs worldwide are participating in centennial community projects in observance of the clubs' 100th birthday. The Grand Junction Rotary Club's centennial project is to rehabilitate the Miller Residence on North 12th Street for hospice's new Center for Hope and Healing.
The Center for Hope and Healing will provide grief counseling to children and adults.
The center will cost $250,000 and should be completed by next summer.
