Club Stories
Hey Kids! Join us Saturday, December 10th at Gaylord West Cinemas. Free Santa movies and more 10am to 12pm. Adults $2 each but let us watch the kids for two hours while you take advantage of the Ugly Sweater sales and events on Main Street.

Polar Express, Frozen, or 3 short features: Charlie Brown, Rudolph and Frosty! HO! HO! HO!
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 Gaylord and Manistee Rotary Clubs, along with others who are not Rotarians, just returned home from our 18th Dominican Republic trip, continuing to build a small community building (like a community center) at the end of a barrio near Los Alcarrizos. Our team was comprised of 22 Michiganders, 7 local Dominicans, plus children from the barrio. The purpose of the community center is to try and keep kids off the streets, drugs, etc. by providing recreational structure for them.  A previous team already built a basketball court for the kids. Our goal was to continue constructing the building and flush toilets.
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.
