Board members of the Cedaredge Community Garden met at Town Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 22, to receive a cash donation for the garden project from the Cedaredge Rotary Club.

He gave the check to Gerry Mendrella, community garden board member.
Others present for the event were Cedaredge Mayor Pat Means; Dea Jacobson, community garden board treasurer; and Larry Claxton, project manager of the garden.
