Club History

The Rotary Club of Fairhope was chartered January 27, 1938. While some of our club’s history has been lost to time, in 1957, Dr. H. C. Jordan and John T. “Tappy” Bradford – with the help of journalism students at Fairhope High School – researched and compiled a club history that you can read via the link below. The photo shown was taken about the same time (ca. 1955), when the club was reportedly meeting at Dale’s Restaurant, an establishment that has not been definitely identified, but members who were in the club at the time confidently identify the location in this photo as Julwin’s Restaurant where we met from 1963 to 1987.

The following documents provide existing information on the history of our club and of the New Members Committee.
