Riverbank Rotary Donates Cash For School Crossing Gear
Riverbank Rotarians have donated $500 to the new Crossroads Elementary School to buy equipment for a school crossing guard program.

Crossroads Principal Marti Reed accepted the check on behalf of the school's Parent Teacher Association during a meeting of Riverbank Rotary, which meets each Thursday at 7:15 a.m. at Perko's Restaurant.

Opened July 9 by the Sylvan School District, Crossroads is the newest school in Riverbank to serve the community.

Prior to its opening, Riverbank Police Services and school officials discussed the idea of developing a student-based crossing guard program similar to what exists at Rio Altura and California Avenue schools, said Police Chief Tim Beck.

The Riverbank Rotary approved the donation of funds to support the Crossroads effort because of the service club's commitment to a safe community and the fact that children will directly benefit from the donation to the school crossing guard program.
