Founded in 1917, the Rotary Club of Regina is the city’s oldest service club of any kind. The club’s record of service includes the creation of Regina’s Rotary Park, over 60 years of support to the Salvation Army Kettles and over 70 years of hosting an annual Rotary Christmas Carol Festival. Such early service now forms part of the heritage of all five local Rotary Clubs, whose members collectively demonstrate their continued relevance and engagement in meaningful service to the Regina community.
In the recent past, the Rotary Club of Regina earned new accolades when the Rotary International president awarded a Presidential Citation for exemplifying how Rotary shares its talents, skills, energy and resources in order to create a better world. The Club’s service also earned a Gold Level Award for Health and Hunger Resources. This award recognizes dedication, commitment and caring for the less fortunate, both in one’s community and internationally. The Club sponsors public schools’ Conflict Management Conference, supports Souls Harbour Rescue Mission, youth development and enrichment programs, New Generations literacy and numeracy programmes, plus a special relationship with Cochrane High School. In short, the 95-year tradition of service to Regina continues.
The Rotary Club of Regina meets at noon on Mondays at the Delta Hotel on Saskatchewan Drive and Rose Street. Visitors are welcome.
