                              Charles “Chuck” Tison Memorial Park

 The Rotary Club of Walnut Grove is very pleased to announce the construction of the Charles “Chuck” Tison Memorial Park as part of the Rotary International’s 100th anniversary celebration.  The park, located near the access road of the Delta Cross Channel, is dedicated to the memory of fellow Rotarian and Lifetime Service Award recipient Chuck Tison for his over 35 years of commitment to the local communities of the Delta as both a resident and local businessman.  The park is designed as an area of reflection, which will provide local residents and visitors with historical information of the surrounding communities and landmarks all within the majestic setting of the Delta. 

  The park will feature a small landscaped area with resting benches as well as a four-sided Kiosk sign featuring each of the following.
