Hey Rockin' Robbins fans, the Willmar Rotary Club is selling poinsettias for our annual holiday fundraiser. We have a few extras this year and are hoping to sell them by the end of the week. They are $20 each, red, 16"-18" tall in a 6" pot. These are beautiful florist-quality, double-pinched plants and make a perfect gift. All proceeds go to Rotary-sponsored projects like Rockin' Robbins, children's literacy, clean water initiatives, and polio eradication. If interested, please send us a private message or comment below and we will follow-up. Thank you for supporting the Willmar Rotary Club! ... See MoreSee Less

Wowzers! What a night out at Rockin' Robbins! Thanks to everyone who came out and helped us smash all previous attendance records! Photos are now available on our website at RockinRobbins.com. Special thanks again to photographer Dennis Benson for capturing the memories for us.

Another HUGE shout-out to Lakeland Broadcasting for being our Presenting Sponsor last night, and to North American State Bank for being our Opening Act Sponsor. The Fabulous Armadillos and 1060 West Addison Blues A tribute to the Blues Brothers rocked the island like never before!

All our Rotarians in the Willmar Rotary Club are so proud of this event, and we are so grateful to everyone who helps us pull it together every week. Thanks especially to YOU for coming out and supporting our vision for a better Robbins Island!
