Rotary Youth Club Expansion Project Continues

Fairhope, Alabama. (

Club Director Mark Stejskel at left

Club directors, various city and county officials and contributing non-profit representatives watched as ground was broken on the new outdoor classrooms to accomodate the ever-increasing enrollment there.

Mayor Kant credited former Mayor Nix and Skipper Tonsmeire with organizing and funding the original facility back in the 1980s.

Some additions have already been made inside, incuding computer classrooms.

The 'Impact 100' ladies organization symbolically presented a very "large" check.

The city owns and maintains the facilitly; but it is operated by the private RYC.

Services are available to all children in the city, not just within the adjacent predominately minority neighborhoods; anyone interested is encouraged to register now for Summer Camp activities.

You do a nice job of informing Fairhope citizens of current events.
Just a suggestion: Try to identify persons in photographs.
