The Edina Rotary has raised $26,000 to donate a 15-foot-6-inch, two-faced "heirloom clock" to Centennial Lakes Park.

The Edina city council will accept the "Howard Replica" clock at its Tuesday meeting. The clock will be erected in the Hughes Pavilion and dedicated in late spring or early summer.

The aluminum, weather-proof clock will feature a Rotary emblem on its 3-foot-8-inch diameter face to symbolize "the longtime partnership between our service club and the City of Edina," Scott MacDonald, a former president of the Rotary wrote in a letter to the city.

The clock will be custom-made made by the Verdin Company in Cincinnati, Ohio, which has installed over 400 post clocks across the country over its 170-year history.

The clock's life expectancy is more than 30 years, with a renovation service recommended in 10 to 15 years.
