SAGAMORE HILLS — A new water tower at the Rotary Club of Nordonia Hills’ Safety Town complex will be dedicated Sept. 13 at 11:45 a.m. at Rushwood School in Sagamore Hills.
It is the second phase of the project, which got under way in 2015.
Earlier this year, a flagpole was donated by the Building Boosters of Nordonia Hills for the site, and a U.S. flag which flew over the U.S. Capitol was donated by U.S. Rep. David Joyce for the dedication ceremony.
The water tower was designed by Cuyahoga Valley Career Center students and funded by a grant from the Nordonia Hills Schools Foundation and Rotary District 6630.
The water tower addition was chosen because of the importance of water in the community and to teach students how valuable this natural resource is to our lives.
At the Sept. 13 dedication ceremony, all businesses and individuals donating to Phase I of the project will be recognized.
Safety Town is a program that teaches safety to students entering kindergarten, and has been offered in Nordonia Hills for more than 40 years at various locations.
The permanent Safety Town facility is a partnership between five organizations — the Rotary Club, Longwood YMCA, Nordonia schools, Cuyahoga Valley Career Center and Nordonia Preschool Parents.
The dedication ceremony is expected to run about 30 minutes, and light refreshments will be available. For more details, call Rotary Club President John Graves at 330-983-0401.
