Welcome to the Rotary in Robertsdale!

rotaryRotary is a great organization, and it has the potential to become even greater — if each one of us rises to the challenge and takes responsibility for its future.

The more than 1.2 million worldwide members of Rotary are committed to humanitarian service, high ethical standards in all vocations, and goodwill and peace in the world. Like their fellow Rotarians in the 30,000 clubs in 166 countries, Robertsdale Rotarians represent a diverse group of professional leaders — both currently employed and retired — working to address local and international service needs.

Service Above Self



173 The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

After 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

endpolioYour contribution will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families.

As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.

This is the place that gave serial entrepreneur John W. Barfield his start. But Barfield, 88, is not an alumnus. He didn’t have the opportunity to go to college, or even to finish high school. He grew up in a family of sharecroppers in the segregated South. In search of a better life, his family migrated north to...
  • Spin doctors
    From the December 2015 issue of The Rotarian In Cuernavaca, Mexico, cobblestone streets and sidewalks can wreak havoc on wheels and bearings. For people who get around using a wheelchair, a mechanical breakdown only exacerbates the social isolation they often face. But an enterprising group is training people with disabilities to fix wheelchairs – and even bringing the concept of roadside assistance to wheelchair users in other cities. Erik Friend, a member of the Rotary Club of Cuernavaca-Juárez, Mexico, had been volunteering with a group called Autonomy, Liberation Through Movement (ALEM)...
  • Member spotlight: Doreen Hock-DiPolito builds confidence
    From the December 2015 issue of The Rotarian Before she took over a family construction firm in 2001, Doreen Hock-DiPolito was a manager at Honeywell Aerospace, working on navigation systems for fighter jets. Commanding a construction company, she assumed, couldn’t be as difficult as rocket science, but she didn’t consider the rigors of clashing with the old-boys’ network of contractors. (Only 7 percent of American construction firms are owned by women.) Under her leadership, D-Mar General Contracting and Development has overseen the construction of a $7 million school, a 34,000-square-foot...
