The Gift of a Carousel

On Monday, June 15, the Rotary Club of Greensboro gifted to the City of Greensboro, in care of the Greensboro Science Center, a magnificent carousel, made up of 56 hard-carved and hand-painted animals with rounding boards and interpretive panels that together tell the story of Greensboro’s history and culture. Originally, a grand opening event was planned for March 30 to celebrate the more than 300 donors to the Carousel and to give them first rides. But, then, the world paused. Instead, a new plans are being designed to allow donors to get their first rides in a social distanced, safe way. In the meantime, the business of gifting the Rotary Carousel to the Greensboro community moved forward.  Thanks to Rotarian Jim Himes and the WGHP Fox8 News team for capturing this very special event.

The Greensboro Science Center will be announcing the public opening and ticketing procedures in the near future.
