The Cape Coral Rotary Clubs and Kiwanis got approval Monday for a school bus stop bench pilot program that comes in response to the death of an 8-year-old girl who was struck by vehicle last month while waiting for her bus.
Cape Coral City Council approved the program after representatives from the clubs and Police Chief David Newlan spoke of raising funds to install 200 benches throughout the city in time for the first day of school in August.
The First Friday of October local Rotary Clubs distribute 10,000 dictionaries to every third grader in Lee County. Each Dictionary is labeled with Rotary's motto, the 4 Way Test of the things we think, say or do.
The Rotary Clubs of Cape Coral completed the Rotary Community Garden in September of 2018 and dedicated the garden to the citizens of Cape Coral to be managed by the City of Cape Coral through Rotary Park.

The garden beds rent annually from October 1- September 30 at a cost of $100 per year.
