THE ROTARY CLUB OF DOWNTOWN ROGERS

 

In recent years, the Rotary Club of Downtown Rogers has provided leadership and manpower to the BBQ portion of Bikes on the Bricks and Oktoberfest. These events could not have been done without their enthusiastic assistance!

 

The Rotary Club of Downtown Rogers works to enhance and improve the Downtown Rogers community, as well as the nation and world, through various projects and causes.
 

Some of the projects Downtown Rotary works on:

  • Rotary Dictionary Project: handing out dictionaries to 3rd graders in the Rogers School District

  • Water well projects in South America

  • Helping to fund Covid mask projects in NWA

  • Monthly Lake Atalanta cleanup

  • American Wheelchair Project

  • Assorted improvement projects at parks in the Downtown Rogers area
     

Downtown Rotary is made up of around 40 members in the Rogers area, from an array of backgrounds, all committed to the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self!”

CITY OF ROGERS | 301 W Chestnut St. 

 

The City has invested millions of dollars in updating the downtown infrastructure and amenities. Keeping what lies beneath the bricks in good order is no easy task and is never a "quick fix". Recently, the City completed (almost) the big, messy project that was the renovation of Frisco Park into "Railyard Park". This project has been led by John McCurdy, Director of Community Development. 

The Community Development department is also responsible for providing Butterfield Stage entertainment downtown through Railyard Live, and oversees the Public Arts Commission and the Historic District Commission (below).

We are grateful for the continued interest in maintaining downtown as an authentic urban experience and to keep the history of Rogers relevant for today.   https://www.rogersar.gov/
