Seeing roses around the Twin Ports is common this time of year, and on Friday, Duluth Mayor Don Ness proclaimed it Rotary Rose Day.

At a news conference on Friday, Ness gave Duluth's Rotary Club 25 recognition for their work in the yearly fundraiser. This is the 27th year the Rotary club has raised funds for important community efforts, grants and scholarships.

He said things like the lighting of the Aerial Lift Bridge and the Duluth Depot are the work of Rotary donations. Ness also said that includes pitching after this summer's floods.
