Annapolis GreenScape

GREENSCAPE. Saturday 4/22, time 8am - 1pm.

This year, the Rotary Club of Annapolis is teaming with students from Eastport based Seeds4Success and the Hillsmere Garden Club to improve the front garden of the Hillsmere Library with native plants and bushes supplied by Annapolis's GreenScape program.

GreenScape is an Annapolis City and community partnership investment of beautification, clean-up, and planting in public spaces through the city.  For 30 years, hundreds of projects have been initiated and adopted by individuals, community groups and neighborhood associates. 


Hillsmere Library was chosen for this project because it is the location where the Seeds4Success students meet weekly with their tutors and mentors.  We will be working one on one to give them experience both with community service and beginning gardening skills. 

Please come prepared with gloves and any personal, labeled gardening tools like spades and shovels.  Lunch will be provided.

Thanks also to Lisa Ausherman and Elaine Shanley for help in the planning.

QI in Action - STEM (May 14, 2022)

THANK YOU to our Fellow Rotarians who helped with the Let’s Go Boys and Girls STEM Fair in the Robinwood community on Saturday. May 14, 2022: Luisa Gil, Helene Raven, Kevin Hurley, Lorie Stout, Carol Gausz, Anne Wolfe. We had the pleasure of working with some curious young people as they built a water bottle vacuum, propeller helicopter, magnetic wooden car and learned how to use a model and decision tree to identify different types of turtles and learned how it applied to possible career options in engineering, physics, and marine biology. Thanks also to Lorie Stout for bringing some of the STEM books from the Little Free Library’s ‘stash’ for students to enjoy!
