Rotaract is a club for adults ages 18-30 that meets twice a month to exchange ideas, plan activities and projects, and socialize. While Rotary clubs serve as sponsors, Rotaract clubs decide how to organize and run their club and what projects and activities to carry out.
On April 9, 2014, members of the Rotary Club of Fairhope were on hand to celebrate the official chartering of the new club. Shown below are Gary Moore, representing the International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians (which was aggressively recruiting Rotaractors); Linda Mong, district governor elect; Geoff Kennedy, president elect of the Rotary Club of Fairhope; Howard Eddy, president; and Julius Wall, president of the new Rotaract Club of the Eastern Shore. Not pictured is Ed Wall, whose efforts were instrumental in organizing the club. More photos can be seen in the club’s Facebook photo album.
