CARROLLTON – As you drive around Public Square in downtown Carrollton, you can’t help but notice the fresh paint on the gazebo, picnic tables and benches.

The new coat of paint came last month, thanks to a community service project by members of the Rotary Club and the Carrollton High School football team.

Rotarians and football players gathered early and were ready to work.

They scraped, cleaned and sanded the surfaces and applied a fresh coat of paint on the community items while dodging a few rain drops that fell during the morning.

Rotary Club members Jeff Ohler, Jeff Yeager, Alan Miller, Dr. David Quattrochi and Rick Carlton joined the boys and got the project done.

“The Carrollton Rotarians are grateful to have our high school football team be part of the beautification project of the square. Great things happen when civic organizations and the school district work together,” said Quattrochi, Rotary president and superintendent of Carrollton Schools.

“We like doing projects that will help out the community. That’s part of our motto. We painted the gazebo a few years ago but it needed an upgrade. We still have some to finish up but it’s nice when we can work with the schools to help the community. It was a fun day,” said Ohler.

New Carrollton head football coach Philip Mauro brought about a dozen football players with him for the work detail.

Ace Hardware and Sherwin Williams donated paint and supplies.
