Ormond Beach, Fla. – Members from the Rotary Clubs of Downtown Ormond Beach, Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach West recently came to the assistance of a 92-year-old widow, to fix approximately 90 feet of 6-foot tall vinyl fence that was falling over from improper installation and recent storms.

The project was coordinated through the Ormond Beach Police Liaison for Community Services.

"The widow was very emotional and extremely happy about the effort," said Steve Burns, a spokesman for the downtown Ormond Beach Rotary. "After completion, the City inspected the work and was also quite pleased."
