Three local Rotary clubs have teamed to support the “Jolley Trolley,” an initiative of the Downtown Dover Partnership that provides free transportation to downtown businesses from 5 to 8 p.m. on first Fridays from January through May.

The trolley is being sponsored by the Dover Capital City Rotary Club, Dover Colonial Rotary Club and Dover Downtown Rotary Club.

The first passengers of the inaugural run of the Jolley Trolley mini-bus boarded outside the Dover Library for a tour of downtown businesses to shop and eat and be entertained by local artists and musicians. The library featured events of its own.

Ten stops were featured in the loop with visitors welcomed to jump on or off at any stop. Deborah Edwards, assistant governor of Rotary District 7630, and a member of Dover Capital City Rotary, served as the tour guide.

"As community service organizations, Rotary's three Dover clubs were delighted to collaborate in support of Downtown Dover's efforts to revive First Fridays during the winter months," said Edwards.
