Request from Robertsdale Rotary Club to Place a Bench at Central Annex in Robertsdale, Alabama





Accept the donation of an outdoor metal bench by the Robertsdale Rotary Club, to be installed on the grounds at Baldwin County Central Annex in Robertsdale. The Robertsdale Rotary Club will deliver and install the bench on County property, at no cost to the County. 





Previous Commission action/date:  N/A


Background:  On March 4, 2020, Commission staff received a request from Robertsdale Rotary Club to place a bench on the grounds of Central Annex, more specifically, in front of Council on Aging where citizens can sit and rest while waiting for a BRATS bus to pick them up.  The wording on the bench will read “Robertsdale Rotary” and the club will order a plaque to be attached to the bench which will read “Donated by Robertsdale Rotary Club, 2020.” 


The Robertsdale Rotary Club received a ‘Branding with Benches” grant to help the citizens of the community as well as recognize the club and its motto, “Others above self.”  The benches will be attached to the concrete to prevent them from being moved or stolen.  The organization needs written approval to place the bench at Central Annex. 


Robertsdale Rotary Club wishes to share that funds raised by the club go back out into the community.
