The Gallatin Rotary Club Would Like to Invite You to Join Us in Our Causes

Since our founding in 1923, The Gallatin Rotary Club has been promoting, assisting and financing many activities that few people know about.

Our biggest event is “Christmas for Kids” which we have done for almost 20 years; we take around 130 less fortunate school-aged children shopping and send them home with not only gifts for them and their families, but a grocery cart overflowing with food and paper products so their families can have the Christmas every child deserves.

We also honor Gallatin High School CTE students, hold a banquet to honor the school’s top students, and give away a bicycle every month to one student in each Gallatin elementary school who exhibits great citizenship. And there’s more…

We meet almost every week at noon on Thursday’s at The Gathering Place, which is located at 450 West Main Street – it’s in the building in the back of the lot.

We would love to have you visit us, and if the time is not convenient, we have started a satellite club which meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm at BYH at 122 W. Franklin Street. Arrive a little early to get your food order in.

Either way, please come help us make Gallatin a better place than it already is…

If you have any questions, please contact us on our Facebook page (you will find a convenient link at the bottom right sidebar to this website) and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We look forward to meeting you!

As summer 2023 draws to a close we celebrate the great work done by Rotarians in their professions and in our service to communities, both local and far flung.

On this Labor Day, may your time be safe and enjoyable, and may we reflect on the progress and productivity of our professions.

Tonight’s Fifth Thursday Happy Hour may have been one of the absolute most comfortable ones we’ve ever experienced! Thank you to all members of both the Noon and Satellite clubs who came to spend some time together.

By the way, we took a vote. The result was…

From Thursday, August 10, 2023

One sign of a good Rotary meeting is probably when the questions run long, and the speaker answers every one but then has to dash out to get back to class without taking a photo with the Club President!

That happened this week when GHS football coach Michael Stroup visited our club for the first time. Coach Stroup spent a good bit of time talking about his work ethic and ethos for the teams he leads. First focus is always on the next 10 yards, and he feels that ... See more

Whewwww. What a day!

So number one, Jeff Hem is hands down one of the best voices to stand behind our mic and tell stories in a long time. Well yeah. He’s a professional radio play-by-play announcer for the Nashville Sounds.

Number two, Jeff was a textbook in day to day preparation; a great example for business and community lives.

Number three, Jeff was also great with relaying what makes this club a vibrant and entertaining part of the Nashville community life, regardless of ... See more

Will there be hot dogs and peanuts and Cracker Jacks at lunch today???

Baseball is hitting the late season stretch run and we welcome Nashville Sounds play-by-play announcer Jeff Hem to our podium over lunchtime.

Sounds like a fun time so please join us for stories about baseball, and travel, and maybe some shenanigans over the years!

Our Club and our caterer, Bit-O-Heaven, are good about honoring members in the week after they have passed away. Today we held a seat for Gene Branham.

More to come this afternoon about our program speaker, but for now we share the space held for Gene.
