Message From President - Feel Free to Join Us Virtually!
Greetings, 
 
What interesting times we live in. As various events take place in the world it becomes more apparent that we need an organization like Rotary to help those in need. Rotary has seven areas of focus that include: promoting peace; fighting disease including the eradication of the polio virus; providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene; saving mothers and children; supporting education; growing local economies; and protecting the environment. Locally Rotary has been providing assistance to so many including local institutions such as the Rotary Home, and Rotel along with the Park for Kids of All Abilities at Brewer Park. Local Rotary clubs have a long history of assisting others to improve their literacy skills. This year local Rotary clubs have given in excess of $70,000 to various food banks. The full list of our efforts and contributions is extensive.
 
As the new Rotary year starts  we invite you to explore what Rotary and specifically our club does to make the world a better place and perhaps you can find some time to join us and make our organization even better.
 
We meet once a week, sometimes virtually, sometimes in person in a hybrid format  to allow everyone to attend. The meeting times are listed to the right on this site. You’re always welcome to join us and find out more about our mission which is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business professional and community leaders. We are non-political, non-denominational and non-religious and inclusive. 
 
Please consider Rotary as a place where you can help to make Ottawa, and the world at large just a little bit better.
 
Join us at Noon to socialize; the meeting proper will start at 12:30
 
Yours in Rotary, 
Graeme Fraser
