HIGHLIGHTS...

Last fall, volunteers from the West Springfield Rotary Club poured concrete for pro tees to replace the old gravel tees on the park’s disk golf course. This spring, they’re back with new signage for the course, a donation valued at almost $4,000. Their contributions improve both the appearance and the safety of the course.

Disk Golf Signage

A small project with a big return is the installation of acoustic panels in the Burke Lake ice cream parlor. The improvement transforms the building from echo chamber to conversational nook.

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT...

Burke Lake Park’s
2010
Outstanding Volunteer Group
of the Year

Under the coordination and direction of Dennis Hogan and Rick Cernohorsky, the West Springfield Rotary Club completed many improvements to the disc golf course at Burke Lake Park. There were many club members involved in the improvements which included pouring concrete tee pads for all the pro tees on the disc golf course.

The West Springfield Rotary Club, in an effort to support their local parks, also donated several thousand dollars to purchase (19) new signs for the course. Tim Beron, who is not a Rotary member but belongs to the local disc golf club, worked with the Rotary Club in designing all the signs and doing all of the art work for the sign vendor. Tim also worked with the park in determining the best location to install the new signs.

This outstanding group of volunteers has devoted many hours of their time to give back to their community and to make Burke Lake Park's disc golf course a nicer course to play.
