Sunrise Rotary club provides upkeep of memorial garden
Members and friends of the Naperville Sunrise Rotary club came together on October 16 for a fall cleanup of the Ron Buonauro memorial garden at St. Patrick’s Residence in Naperville. About 8 volunteers conducted a general cleanup of the plant beds. Beautiful morning and great fellowship! The garden provides a place for the residents and staff of St. Patrick’s to relax and rest. It was dedicated in memory of longtime Sunrise Rotarian Buonauro in 2003. Buonauro was a volunteer and avid supporter of St. Patrick’s, where his mother had lived out her last years.
