SaddleBrooke, Arizona
Yes, it is true that in 1997 when the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke was chartered it was the first Rotary Club in the nation whose members were retirees.  The SaddleBrooke communities, Robson Communities, restrict residents to 55 and over.
Since its founding the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke has welcomed over 200 new members, mostly retirees who enjoy the fellowship and service so important to Rotary.  You might be surprised, however, to learn that today the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is much more than a retirement club.
Diversification has become a critical factor in the success and development of a Rotary club.  We want you to meet some of our members who are not retired.
