Manly Council has notified the Club of its plan to remove the fountain in Gilbert Park.
President Enza informed the club of the removal of the fountain from Gilbert Park and the installation of a garden plaque to recognize the past and ongoing contribution of Manly Rotarians the community. Wording has been sourced from Council’s local history librarian, who has the history held in the library.
We have been advised that a time capsule is within the structure, so if the members are approving for this removal Manly Council  will remove the fountain structure, search for it.  If located within, the time capsule will be returned with great interest to Manly Rotary.
