Thank you, Penn Yan Rotary

Members of Penn Yan Rotary teamed up with staff and individuals from the Arc of Yates’ Center for Lifelong Learning to create planter boxes.  Jeff Krans, Rotary Club member, organized the effort by securing grant funding and organizing the volunteer effort.  Over the course of four months, participants prepped the material for the project, developed the designs and built the planter boxes.  “This was a tremendous opportunity for our individuals to be able to contribute to a project from conceptualization to completion” noted Doug Fleet, Director of the Center for Lifelong Learning.  “We are extremely grateful for the collaboration with Penn Yan Rotary, and specifically Jeff Krans for spearheading the effort.  Our staff and individuals work and volunteer in and around Yates County on a regular basis, and it was a pleasure to invite the community to our facility for this project.”

The Center’s Institutes of Learning are designed to provide purposeful and meaningful activities in pursuits such as woodworking, horticulture, culinary, fine arts and recreation.  Find out more by visiting the website at or contact Doug Fleet at 315-536-7447.
