Our Rotary at Work

Manley Road Soccer Complex

On February 1, 2018, Rotary volunteers responded to a call to spread rubber mulch at a new playground the Rotary Club of Fairhope had sponsored at the Manley Road Soccer Complex. Many hands made light work, and in less than an hour, the crew had finished, reducing the hills of mulch to a uniform layer in the playground area.

Gospel Fest Benefitting the Rotary Youth Club

In the fall of 2018 we sold snow cones and soft drinks at the Gospel Fest benefitting the Rotary Youth Club.

Steak Cook-Off

Our Annual Steak Cook-Off is a fundraiser held annually on the second Friday in May. This event requires the participation of every single member to pull off. Many are involved in planning and preparation throughout the year; some turn out to set up the venue on the day of the event (including putting up barricades and stocking the soft drink barrels with ice). Others have various jobs during the event, including manning the entry gates. And of course cleanup afterward is a mammoth job.

Pancakes for a Purpose Benefitting the Rotary Youth Club

Each year we support the Pancakes for a Purpose event benefitting the Rotary Youth Club.

Sunset Rotary’s Backyard Barbecue and Homebrew Beer Competition

The Rotary Club of Fairhope fielded a team at the Sunset Rotary’s Backyard Barbecue and Homebrew Beer Competition, offering barbecued shrimp (which took second place in its category and fourth place in the People’s Choice competition). Heading the team were Jeff Barré, chef, and Lee Turner, “art director.” President Howard Eddy served the result. In the bottom photo, Howard is serving then–District Governor Bob Callahan.

Balloon Give-A-Way at Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival

In 2015, we had a table at the Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival to give away free balloons and distribute literature about PolioPlus.

Distributed Dictionaries to All Local Third-Graders

For many years we distributed dictionaries to all local third-graders. Here we were joined by members of the Sunset Rotary Club.

Fairhope Christmas Marshals

Every year we provide float marshals for the Fairhope Christmas parade.
