On May 12, 1926, Rotary International chartered the Enterprise Rotary Club. With 27 members, Enterprise Rotary Club became one of 2,000 Rotary International clubs and 100,000 Rotarians committed to advancing the mission to serve in the community, workplace, and around the world. As the first service club in Enterprise, the Enterprise Rotary Club has a long history of community and international involvement in projects aimed at developing communities into safe and welcoming places to live and work. Over the years, more than 800 Enterprise Rotary Club members have assisted Rotary International’s 34,000 clubs and 1.2 million members to advance Service above Self. Within the community and abroad, the Enterprise Rotary Club provided over $1,000,000 and nearly 100,000 service hours to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio around the world.
With over 85 years of service, Enterprise Rotary Club provides numerous financial and volunteer contributions to organizations within Coffee County. On average, over 15 Coffee County agencies receive financial contributions totaling approximately $20,000 annually. A few notable initiatives include Camp Ala-Flo, the playground at Johnny Henderson Family Park, Coffee County Family Services Center, and most recently the Splash Pad in the Park. Other organizations that benefit from Rotary contributions include Boy Scouts, Easter Seals, Alabama’s Special Camp for Children and Adults, Coffee County Arts Alliance, Coffee County Extension System, Coffee County Department of Human Resources, Coffee County Chapter of the American Red Cross, Coffee/Dale County Special Olympics, and the Wiregrass United Way.
Today, Enterprise Rotary Club continues its legacy of Service above Self. Boasting an average membership of 80 members, the Club is made up of recognized business leaders and professionals in diverse occupational fields that are committed to improving our community through leadership, dedication, and service. The Enterprise Rotary Club meets every Tuesday at the Enterprise Country Club at noon. Guests of Rotarians and visitors are always welcome to attend.
