Club Stories
Our Dominican Republic Service Trip 2017 was a great success! Locals dug the footings for 2 homes. We built the steel rebar framework for footings and all columns. We then made, hauled and poured cement for all footings. We poured cement in cores and columns. Then laid three courses of block and then back-filled dirt to level floor for cement. A new team arrives Saturday and will bring walls up another 7 feet and ready it for the roof the following week. Third team does plumbing and electrical.  New homes to be occupied within four weeks.
Students and Rotarians made a trip to the market, old colonial city, Three Eyes ( sub-terranian lakes), Carib to swim and hotel for night. We also saw some amazing waterfalls!  Dates for next year trip are Feb 2 to Feb 10, adding one day for trip back to San Juan and party at a farm.  Great trip. All students loved it and want to return. Rotary doing good in the World, promoting peace and fostering goodwill.
Gaylord Rotarians met at the Rotary Bill Granlund Memorial Trail at the middle school on Sunday to clear out the overgrowth and make the trail accessible in width for the snow groomer! We will be updating main signage and  nature station markers in the Spring. A re-dedication of the renovated trail is happening in May 2017!
Gaylord's first CASH MOB to support small business! About 40 Rotarians met under the pavilion on Main Street and randomly chose Isabella's Copper Pot as the first cash mob recipient. Dr. Peter Opperman drew the lucky winner. We "mobbed" Isabella's, showering them with surprise sales during this slow retail/orange barrel time of year.
The Rotary Club of Gaylord annually join our Alpine Village Alpenfest celebration by offering freshly made hamburgers, hot dogs, Alpine Fries and cold drinks.  During the week long festival Gaylord Rotarians volunteer to feed the festival goers with enthusiasm.  Our efforts and funds earned allows us to assist the needs of many local groups and individuals.

Change your community with us by volunteering on a local project.

We work with groups and organizations of all sizes to accomplish even more.

Discover and celebrate diverse perspectives with a global organization.
