A Word from Our President
Rotarians are people of action, resilience, and commitment to making a difference. As we continue to adapt to a changing environment where uncertainty, frustration, and even sadness may exist, Rotary offers us a sense of hope, optimism, and well-being.
The Rotary Club of Greenville is rooted in the tradition of professional business networking, serving our community, and enjoying one another’s fellowship. It is Rotary’s mission to do good in the world and our theme for this year is “Imagine Rotary”. As Rotarians we dare to imagine our community — and the wider world — transformed for the better through our own lives and service. We invite you to join us on that journey.Read More

Randy Redlinger, Executive Director, Gateway House
In 1984 Gateway’s founding members hired Phil Emory as executive director to implement a Clubhouse model of rehabilitation modeled after Fountain House in New York City, the oldest and most effective psychiatric rehabilitation program in the United States. Since then, Gateway has served more than 1,400 members and trained more than 2,200 colleagues on the Clubhouse model. We’re proud to be a pillar of hope for people with mental illness in our community, and continue to help affected individuals regain purpose and joy every day. Today, Executive Director Randy Redlinger continues to expand their program. Redlinger became executive director in 2017, taking over for original director Phil Emory, who had been with Gateway since it opened in 1984. Emory worked to keep the strong Clubhouse International model that makes Gateway one of the strongest programs in the network of clubhouses that serve as meeting places and resource centers for severely mentally ill people. It remains one of the top five Clubhouses in the world in an organization that reaches 100,000 per year. Redlinger works with local employers to help Gateway members placed in jobs. The organization works with businesses around the community like Bob Jones University’s food service program, Swamp Rabbit Cafe, Met Life and Coffee Underground.
