ROSSLAND ROTARY TODAY
Today the Rossland Club membership is about 23 adults of all ages, genders and backgrounds, united in the vision that we can make a difference in our 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 (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, at the Rossland Curling Club Lounge, located in the Rossland Arena (see Meeting Location below). We welcome visitors, potential new projects, speakers, and contributors. Please contact any member or an officer (see below) to confirm your attendance.
Your participation in Rossland Rotary events supports Rossland Rotary's programs and donations including:
- Rossland Youth Action Network (Y.A.N.);
- Rossland Museum;
- local student participation in Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE),
- fully sponsoring a top student to attend Adventures in Citizenship (Ottawa) and Adventures in Technology (Saskatoon);
- Mike Pistak Memorial Rotary Scholarships;
- Rossland Library;
- Friends of the Rossland Range (FORR);
- Rossland Junior Curling Club;
- Miners' Hall--Lily May Room equipment
- a few projects for disaster relief, disease prevention, education, literacy and clean water in under-developed countries.
|Each year new projects and programs are evaluated and funded, depending upon the amount raised from various fundraising events.|
