Welcome to the Rotary Club of Rossland

Home (What is Rotary?) || Programs We Support || Events Archive || History || DONATE


Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community and around the world. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to Rotary's guiding principles, purpose and direction.

Rotary International's Focus

Rotary International has established six focus areas: promoting peace, preventing disease, providing clean water and sanitation, enhancing maternal and child health, improving basic education and literacy, helping communities develop.

Rotary's Four-Way Test

Of the things Rotarians think, say or do, the Four-Way Test is applied: 1) Is it the TRUTH? 2) Is it FAIR to all concerned? 3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?




Today, the Rossland Club membership is about 19 adults of all ages, gender and background united in the vision that we can make a difference in the community and in the world. We believe that our work is more effective and will have more impact by working as a team and through the structure offered by Rotary International.

We welcome you to attend a club meeting to visit and learn more about us, propose a project, make a presentation, or contribute to a particular project. The club is not affiliated with any religious or political organization (there is no secret handshake!), and we always appreciate the opportunity to get to know community-minded and service-oriented people who like the idea of "giving back" to one's community.




The Club meets Mondays, 6:15pm, Rock Cut Pub, Rossland, BC, Canada. We welcome visitors, potential new projects, speakers, contributors. Please contact any member or an officer (see below) to confirm your attendance.
