Area Rotary clubs build outdoor learning space

The local Rotary clubs of Mystic, Groton and the Stoningtons have teamed up to build a new outdoor learning space at Riverfront Children’s Center in Groton. The space includes benches, flower beds and pathways made with stepping stones created by the children at the center in order to boost reading skills and help children learn kindness, empathy and more.

“This new space embraces the child and promotes calmness and conversation. It serves as an ideal reading space that gets children ready to learn,” Dr. Susan Radway, executive director of the center, said in a press release.

The Rotary clubs, along with donations by the Groton Parks Foundation and the Rotary District, funded the $12,000 project.

“We are pleased to help support the important mission of the Riverfront Children’s Center and make this community a better place for all families,” Betty Smith, president of the Rotary Club of Mystic, said in the release.
