Club Stories

The Gaylord Middle School cross country ski club would like to thank our sponsors for the purchase of 28 pairs of skis, boots, poles, and bindings. With the help of Forbush Corner Cross-Country Skiing, we were able to purchase new Madshus ski equipment using five grants totaling $5000. A special thanks to the following organizations who awarded us grants: American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation, Rotary Club of Gaylord, Otsego County Community Foundation, Wagar Motor Sales Inc, and the Gaylord Middle School.


It's Caramel Apple Friday time again! Your Rotary Club of Gaylord partners with Alpine Chocolat Haus, known for their scrumptious caramel apples of all kinds, for a unique fund raiser. Rotarians donate our time to make these edible delights and Alpine Chocolat Haus donates all the profits to our Club. We plow those profits right back into our local community. As a business owner, this is a great opportunity to provide your team with a sweet treat for a great cause. Order by 9/16 for delivery to your business on 9/23. You can order again by 9/23 for our second delivery on 9/30. They are so yummy. You will be a hero. Rotary can fund community programs. Everybody wins!


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.
