This dramatic lighting, first seen on June 3, 2011 - the 100th Anniversary of the
Rotary Club of Duluth, Club No. 25 - was made possible by a gift from its members.
The lighting of this tower symbolizes the warm welcome extended by Duluth citizens to visitors from around the world and was provided in honor of the Rotary Club of Duluth's first 100 years of Service to the Community and the World.
The project was coordinated with the City of Duluth.
