LOS GATOS, Calif. – October 14, 2013 – The Rotary Clubs of Los Gatos have teamed up to install new stretching stations along the Los Gatos Creek Trail starting at the trailhead at the top of Jones Road trail and on to Charter Oaks, off of Lark Ave.
Past presidents, Paul Christensen, of the Rotary Club of Los Gatos (www.losgatosrotary.org) and Scott Savage, of the Los Gatos Morning Rotary Club (www.lgmorningrotary.org) decided to develop a community service health project during their year as presidents (2012-2013).
“We value our town and community and this is a major step in providing a healthy productive way for residents to enjoy the trail and take advantage of the stretch stations,” said Paul Christensen. . “These durable steel stations will conveniently allow people to stretch and strengthen their bodies while they use the trail,” he added. Paul has provided sports and orthopedic physical therapy to the community for 34 years.
“We designed and organized this project to improve the health of our community and serve as a reminder of how our Rotary Clubs of Los Gatos continue to help improve our town,” said Scott Savage . Scott is a law enforcement professional and has been active in Los Gatos scouting, sporting, educational, and philanthropic efforts for over seventeen years.
George Hall and Tom Dodge, two local contractors have been working closely with Steve Regan of the Parks and Recreation Department, to organize the installation of the stations.
Rodger Griffin, a local home designer, brought the design to life with the production of the plans for the project. Drake Welding fabricated the pieces.
The project will be funded and installed in total by the members of the Rotary Clubs of Los Gatos. The project installation will begin Saturday, October 5, 2013 and should be completed and ready for use by early November 2013.
