The Rotary Club of Folsom participated in Community Service Day on Saturday, September 16 in a big way.  Twenty-six members worked from early morning to late afternoon installing a 13-person Cross Fit rig at Willow Hill Reservoir Community Park.  The Rotary Club of Folsom purchased the Cross Fit rig for this park at a cost of $12,500.  On Sunday, October 15, the club completed the project with the addition of wood fiber under the rig.
The project started earlier in the week when Bob Blackwell used his tractor skills moving dirt around to set up the construction site.  On Friday, September 15, the rig was delivered and holes were dug getting ready for the installation on Saturday.
On Saturday morning, Folsom High School hosted 2,000 students from 61 high schools for a Cross Country meet with the construction site adjacent to the track.  Despite that, the work was completed by early afternoon and was ready for concrete at 2:30.  Fortunately the track meet was done by noon.
