The Rotary Club of Saipan is moving forward with its enhancement project at the Suicide Cliff.
Fifteen Rotary members plus their family members held a cleanup drive at the site last month. They worked on the iron fence and had it repainted, courtesy of the donated paint from Tandem Skydive Saipan. Rotary also teamed up with Division of Parks & Recreation to bush cut grass and clear trees at the Suicide Cliff, while the Saipan Mayor’s Office assisted the club in pulling out tree stumps to clear the area for new plants.
Clearing work and other minor improvement at the site that has World War II historical significance were done in preparation for Rotary Club’s major project—to develop a butterfly garden.
“The planned butterfly garden will add value to the historical significance of the Suicide Cliff for all residents and tourists to enjoy. This is an opportunity for our club to develop a creative and unique project that our people can enjoy and be proud of,” said Rotary Club of Saipan president Sonya Dancoe.
The repainting of the iron fence and cleanup drive are just the beginning of many steps that the Rotary will be taking to enhance Suicide Cliff. Their next project is to plant trees and grow foliage in the area and then work on a sustainable and environment-friendly artwork at the site.
“Rotarians are people of action and we will continue to work on projects that benefit our community. Gi todos hit ta hulat. Together, we can,” Dancoe said. (PR)
