Park is a beacon of pride for San Juan Bautista

The Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista won a Community Impact Grant award that will help fund Phase Two of the Verutti Park Project

The Community Foundation for San Benito County would like to congratulate The Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista for their Community Impact Grant award.  This award will go toward Phase Two of the Verutti Park Project.

The community visualizes San Juan Bautista as something more than a tourist stop. This is their home, and for the last several months, a group of volunteers have helped remove plants, replace fences, add litter boxes, and much more.  Watch the video below or click here to see the completion of Phase One.

The Community Foundation is pleased to support the Verutti Park Project. We strongly encourage nonprofit organizations and volunteer groups to contact us if there is any need of improvement in their neighborhood. Let’s work on making San Benito County a better place!
