On two visits, the Marana Rotary Club has repainted the inner courtyard awning at Thornydale Elementary School, 7751 North Oldfather Road.

The project was part of a community service effort to help the Marana Unified School District with facilities maintenance during severe budget cuts, a release said.

"The Marana Unified School District has suffered unprecedented budget cuts the past two years and the Marana Rotary Club felt obligated to help however we could," said Jane Howell, club president. "This project was a small way to show the students and teachers of MUSD that the Marana community cares about their success."

Along with Marana Rotary Club members, representatives of the Dove Mountain Rotary Club and the Rotaract Club at the University of Arizona did the work. Much of the paint needed to complete the nearly six-hour project was donated by the Marana Lowe's home improvement store. The group first visited Thornydale Elementary on April 10 and returned three weeks later to complete the project.

The Marana Rotary Club is an affiliate of Rotary International, a service organization with more than 1.2 million members worldwide. The club meets every Tuesday at 7 a.m. at Nana's Kitchen, 8225 N. Courtney Page Way, and regularly holds community service events on weekends. For more information, please visit www.maranarotary.org.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
