Bob Rowland with Rotary president Tanya Nix

Bob Rowland of Mint Hill was announced as the Distinguished Rotarian of the Year last week at Mint Hill Rotary Club’s Thursday. Bob is a charter member of the Rotary Club of Mint Hill.  He and his wife Brenda have two daughters, three grandchildren and one great grandchild.  His company, Turn-Key Financial Builders, Inc., builds financial institutions.
Recently, he has been the guiding force for the club’s project to construct restrooms for visitors to the Mint Hill Historical Society.  He has been involved at every stage of the project, including securing subcontractors and materials and doing much of the labor.  In this, as in his other contributions to our community, Bob has always deflected attention and praise away from himself to members of the club as a whole.
The club’s golf outing is its largest fundraiser and Bob annually serves on that committee.   Bob is also co-vice president for the Mint Hill Historical Society Board of Trustees and has worked on other renovation/construction projects for that organization.
Bob participates in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg and in the North Carolina State Senior Games, where he has won numerous medals, including many gold medals.   He currently is section hiking the Appalachian Trail, having completed 850 miles so far.
