North Sunrise Rotary Club dedicates public bench to promote community engagement

November 17, 2022

On Tuesday, November 1, 2022, The Milwaukee North Sunrise Rotary Club dedicated a neighborhood bench located on the northwest corner of 55th and Center, near a Milwaukee County Transit bus stop. The neighborhood bench project was presented to our club by one of their members, Thanner Baquero, a local resident of the Uptown Neighborhood. The purpose of the neighborhood bench is to encourage community engagement, provide a symbol of friendship, demonstrate caring for our neighbors and beautifying the neighborhood. Their decision on the neighborhood bench led them to believe that a public bench would contribute to the social and emotional well-being of the elderly, disabled and other individuals that spend time at the 55th and Center Street bus stop.
