The rains tried, but they could not dampen the friendly smiles and warm thoughts evident today at the dedication ceremony of the BJ and Clark Hodge children's playground at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. A large crowd turned out to hear remarks from a number of individuals whose lives have been touched by the generosity of the Hodge family. We were especially gratified by the presence of Mrs. BJ Hodge and her children, who really seemed to enjoy the very obvious affection all of us had for Clark. We are posting lots of photos on the Sunrise Rotary FB page at https://www.facebook.com/gainesvillesunriserotary/as well as the video that we showed at the luncheon. Of course you can also see photos on the Sunrise Flickr page at https://flic.kr/s/aHsmw3tYMU.
 
At this week's meeting you'll have the chance to hear all about it. Special thanks are in order here for Cleve Cooper and Rick Medina for overseeing the construction, to Bobbie Robinson who threw one terrific luncheon, to the friends of Clark who shared their precious and thoughtful memories with us, and to our friends at Kanapaha Gardens who have allowed us to share the legacy of Clark and BJ Hodge for many years to come.
