While here you will learn more about our vibrant and energetic club. We are one of nearly 34,000 worldwide Rotary Clubs in over 250 countries. Rotary has led the way to eradicate Polio, feed the hungry, provide clean water and bring peace to the World.

The Rotary Club of Strathroy was founded in 1989 and is grateful to have an active, dynamic and diverse membership. We are proud that we were the first club in the Country to welcome both men and women.

We are a group of diverse individuals coming together to positively impact our community as well as globally effect positive change. We have an active fellowship and social program throughout the year in addition to our works of service.

Our Club is known for many community service projects including the Strathroy Splash Pad, The Rotary Trail and the new palliative care suite at the Strathroy hospital. We also lead the little library, Blood donor clinic and provide educational scholarships.

Joining Rotary is one of the best ways for individuals to be actively engaged in service while building friendships and connections. Above all, the camaraderie of our club is what makes it special.

If you would like to learn more about this dynamic club or how you can join our membership, please contact us by choosing  Contact Us  in the menu at the top of your screen.  Or join us Tuesday’s at noon at the Duke on Sydenham in Strathroy. 

Yours in Rotary,

Nate Parsons - Club President

 

“ Palliative Care is end of life care for a patient and their family and friends. It’s a time of mixed emotions, and a time for patient privacy and dignity. This is why we are overwhelmed with emotion at the Foundation about the opening of a dedicated Palliative Care Suite at Strathroy Hospital. We want to recognize our Hospital President & CEO Todd Stepanuik, and the VP of Clinical Services & CNO Rosemary Frketich for having the vision to move this project forward, but mostly we want to thank the Strathroy Rotary Club and the more than 200 donors, without whom this beautiful, private space would never have happened.”

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
 
What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.
Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
 
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.
