Signature Project 2020

Lincoln, NE [August 4, 2020] — On Friday, August 7, 2020, at 9:30 a.m. Downtown Lincoln Rotary Club #14—Lincoln’s oldest and largest service club—will present Lincoln Parks Foundation with a $200,000 check to help renovate the city’s Bicentennial Cascade Fountain, also known as the “Teachers’ Fountain.”

In honor of Rotary #14’s 110th Anniversary, club members selected the Cascade Fountain as the featured Signature Project. The $200,000 donation is a combination of funds from Rotary #14 and its foundation counterpart. Located at the corner of 27th Street and Capital Parkway across from the Sunken Gardens, the Cascade Fountain was built in 1978 as a result of a collaboration between the Lincoln-Area Teachers Association (known today as Lincoln Area Retired School Personnel) and Lincoln Parks and Recreation to commemorate the Country’s Bicentennial.
