A groundbreaking ceremony was held on the banks of the Big Sioux River in downtown Sioux Falls for Rotary Centennial Plaza. The new plaza will be at the mouth of the 10th Street bridge and River Road and provide a new place for people to congregate downtown. So far, more than $50,000 in cash and in-kind resources has been contributed for the project, which has an estimated cost of $150,000. Joel Dykstra, Rotary past president, who championed funding the plaza, said the organization’s purpose is to enrich other people’s lives just as Rotary clubs do in communities around the world. The development of Rotary Centennial Plaza showcases 100 years of contributions by Rotary to Sioux Falls and provides a seed and model for future development of the west bank of the Sioux River Greenway.
