ROCKLAND — Rockland City Councilor Penny York presented the Rockland Rotary Club with a $5,000 donation in support of the Rockland Rotary’s Centennial “All-Aboard” Inclusive Playground Project. She donated $2,500 herself (to include her $1,800 City Councilor’s stipend) in addition to a charitable giving match of $2,500 from her employer, Bank of America.

“Every kid has the right to play,” said York, in a Rotary Club of Rockland news release. “I want to thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this project. I want to, hopefully, encourage other members of the community to step up and do what they can to make this happen.”

“What a wonderful example of Rotary’s motto, “Service Above Self,” said the Rotary.
