Rotarians: Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things
Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.
Over time, Rotary’s reach and vision gradually extended to humanitarian service and today, Rotary has become a global network of 1.4 million neighbours, friends, leaders and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. There are over 46,000 Rotary clubs in the world in over 200 countries.
The Rotary Club of Parksville was formed in 1984 and has carried out many projects in support of the local community and internationally, focusing on food security, education and literacy, homelessness, mental health, the environment, disaster aid, and support for the people of Ukraine affected by the ongoing conflict.
All meetings are in Pacific Time.
