Young people to experience Mahanay Carillon Tower, thanks to Rotary Club of Jefferson

Hundreds of young people, like these children from the Greene County Early Learning Center, will have the opportunity to experience the sights and sounds from the Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower for free this year, thanks to a sponsorship by the Rotary Club of Jefferson.

“Our club is happy to sponsor admissions for youth aged 18 and under as we kick off our celebration of 100 years of serving the community,” said Tori Riley, who will become president of the club for its centennial year 2021-2022.

The club’s sponsorship supports the Bell Tower Community Foundation’s vision that all children be able to hear the story of the Mahanays’ philanthropy and experience seeing the countryside and rooftop art from the Paul Nally Observation Deck, all opportunities that have made the tower Iowa Tourism’s rural 2021 Outstanding Attraction.

Children from the Early Learning Center are back row, from left: Adam, Logan, Clarissa and Ava. Front row, from left: Ariyah, Axton, and Aiden.
