In 2020, Rama Swim Club took over management of the Queens Grant Entryway at Lynbrook Drive and Rama Road, coming into the Stonehaven neighborhood. Managed for many years by the late Marge Murphy, the Queens Grant Entryway was lovingly maintained by many volunteers and funds were raised to support that maintenance, including the irrigation installation, the water and gas bills, and annual flowers.
In taking on this responsibility, Rama Swim Club worked with the remaining Queens Grant volunteers and Duke Energy’s Community Engagement team to get electricity wired to the brick entrance wall and a meter installed. While the median is gorgeously landscaped and currently blooming with colorful flowers, the lights have not yet been upgraded to energy efficient LED lamps that will last for many more decades.
As the volunteers for Queens Grant Entryway did for many years, Rama Swim Club will be fundraising, every two years, for donations to help offset the cost of the maintenance, flowers, trees and shrubs. In 2022, we raised funds for maintenance of the median and specifically to raise money to fund the purchase, installation and maintenance of the new LED lanterns. This entryway has been dark for many years, and we are eager to see the light there soon.
Thank you to all who contributed to LIGHT UP THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
