The Rotary Club made a “ceremonial” check presentation to the Stephenville City Council on Tuesday, signifying the group’s commitment to improving the Bosque River Trail.


Rotary Club president Moumin Quazi presented the council with $3,000 that will be used to purchase a water bottle filling station at the Collins Street Trailhead on the Bosque River Trail.

Over the past few years, the Rotary Club has donated a total of $9,000 to the trail.


“We hope that the city sees by these efforts that the Rotary Club cares about Stephenville’s general health and well-being and we hope that everyone in and around Stephenville can get out and enjoy nature at its finest at the Collins Street Trailhead on the Bosque River Trail,” Quazi said.
