Hurricane Sally relief Trip II

We are planning to make a second trip to coastal areas affected by Hurricane Sally on October 9 – 11. The goal of this trip will be to assist a fellow Rotarian remove large debris from his home, as well as assisting others in need in the area.

We will plan to meet Friday, October 9th at 1 PM at CAS aviation. Address is 14560 S Greeno Rd. Fairhope, AL 36532. From there we will convoy to the first work site, and then see how much we can get done and go from there. We will meet at the same location Saturday morning at 9 AM to begin the work day.

Sleeping arrangements for six on Friday and Saturday night have been confirmed, but we can accommodate more if the need is greater. This trip will end on Sunday morning.

Items we need:

  • Pre-mix gas for small engines
  • Chain saw blades, and bar oil
  • Anything that can be used as a tow strap to move large logs
  • Personal protective equipment (hearing protection, eye protection, etc.)
  • Volunteer labor appropriately dressed

If you would like to donate cash in lieu of items of need, please call or text 334-707-2486 and we can arrange that.

Early-mid July is humming with Rotary Zoom meetings of all types!

In addition to the important training, awards ceremonies and other activities happening in many districts, club and district leaders should consider attending the upcoming meetings.

All of these sessions are free of charge, and open to all Rotary members.

Rotary is the world's oldest and most important service organizationwith over 1,200,000 members in more than 30,000 clubs spread throughout 180countries. District 6880 has four active Rotary clubs in the Montgomery area seeking to serve the community. For a few examples locally, these clubs help MACOA provide Meals on Wheels, recently they built the Rotary downtown dog park, planted trees around Montgomery including Oak Park, and delivered dictionaries to third grade students all around Montgomery. The Montgomery clubs are an imporrtant part of Rotary District 6880, led by past District Governor Skip Dotherow, of the Montgomery Sunrise Club. The District encompasses cities as far north as Clanton down to Mobile, Fairhope and Dothan. Through the generosity of 6880 Rotarians, local communities are able to provide services and structures and supplies for those in need. District 6880 built a house in Lee County last year for a displaced family as a result of the deadly tornadoes.
