In 1970, the Alabaster-Pelham Rotary Club began in an effort to provide community service by uniting in one civic organization. The club was formed in Shelby County by notable business leaders with service and generosity in their hearts. As the Rotary Club is known worldwide under the Rotary International auspice, our local club began immediately working to be impactful both locally and abroad.
The Alabaster-Pelham Rotary Club currently has 30 active members, meeting weekly on the campus of the Brookwood Baptist Health Center in Alabaster, Alabama. The membership is made up of a variety of local men and women from businesses around Shelby County.
The funds raised by the Rotarians through various projects go to benefit Christmas gift bags for elderly home bound residents in Shelby County; and to support and provide gifts for the Senior Centers in Shelby County. In early 2012, the Alabaster-Pelham Rotary Club formed a partnership with the Manna Ministries Pantry in Alabaster. Manna Ministries is a food distribution ministry serving Shelby County’s less fortunate community. A Southern Christmas Bazaar continues to serve as a collection site for canned goods to replenish the shelves of the Manna Ministry Pantry.
The Alabaster-Pelham Rotary Club has contributed to the Developing Alabama Youth Foundation to help fund various projects; Rotarians have volunteered their time and effort to help the DAY Foundation’s student projects. The Alabaster YMCA has also received funds from the Rotary Club, as well as teachers in the Alabaster City School System and the Pelham City School System. The local club sponsors three or four students each year to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership weekend retreat at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Addressing the needs of Shelby County’s underfed children has been a focus for the Rotary Club. The Club donated a van to the local Back Pack Buddies organization to deliver the food filled packs to the schools each week.
The King’s Stables has been the recipient of a substantial donation from the Alabaster-Pelham Rotary Club to help their program grow. The Pelham Public Library, the Children’s of Alabama Critical Care Transport Helicopter, and other Shelby County organizations in need have been aided in their programs by the Alabaster-Pelham Rotary Club.
Rotarians have honored the Police and Fire Departments in both Alabaster and Pelham with weekend cookouts; Rotarians have been Bell Ringers for the Salvation Army and stand ready to help with time and money when needs arise.
