The more than 90 members of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown actively support youth programs in their community and across the world. They recently made a generous donation to the Mikinduri Children of Hope and partner with the Sierra Club to support the Wild Child Forest School. Thank you for making the Rotaract Club of UPEI a reality!
75 years young and still going strong! Without a doubt, the Rotary Club of Summerside has made a huge and positive impact on the community through the construction of the Inspire Learning Centre. While having fun, proceeds from the Fitzgerald Snow Golf Classic support the Prince County Hospital Foundation. Recognizing the value of investing in the future, the club gives out 7 scholarships annually.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation is financially better off through the extremely generous donation made by the Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty. The club recognizes the value of investing in youth through the creative writing awards given out to deserving students as well as being actively engaged in the District’s Long Term Youth Exchange program.
The Rotary Club of Montague was the first club in the District to be involved with the Toonie program and they have watched in amazement to see the fundraising start from humble beginnings to the incredibly successful program it is today. This has enabled the club to support many, many community initiatives. The club is committed to seeing great work done internationally in such poverty stricken countries such as Nepal.
The Rotarians of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough have come up with a unique way to beautify their community through the creation of corner flowerbeds. They are also active supporters of our District’s Youth Exchange program where Solvej Kaagaard, from Denmark was welcomed and Annie Kitson went off to Germany.
