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 first Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm at Alberto’s.

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!
