Rotary Day

Celebrating Rotary!

As a global organization, Rotary has over 1.2 million members that are dedicated to making a difference in their communities and across the globe.

In Grande Prairie alone, we have 5 main clubs with nearly 300 members plus 4 Interact clubs with approximately 50 members, and one Earlyact club with 19 members. While friendship and connections are a large part of Rotary, giving back to the community and to those in need through service projects is one of the main goals.

Globally, Rotary has contributed significantly to supporting the eradication of Polio, helping provide access to clean water and sanitation, promoting peace, supporting education, growing local economies, and saving mothers and children.

Locally, our clubs have brought many of the same values and goals to our community by supporting organizations and projects through both donations and volunteer services. Thanks to the generosity of the community, in the last 5 years between all the Rotary, Interact and Earlyact clubs, we’ve donated $11.6 million, with most donations supporting local projects such as the Grande Prairie Food Drive, Hospital Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Greenathon, Sunrise House, Rotary House, Wellness House, Daytime Outreach Facility, Dcoy Community Hub, Dignity Drive and many others.

While Rotary Day is typically our opportunity to celebrate the good that Rotary does in the community through an engaging public event, due to COVID-19 this isn’t possible. So instead, we’re raising awareness of the positive impact Rotary has in our community through the power of social media and advertising.


When it’s safe to do so, we’d love to host you at one of our meetings in person. In the meantime, we invite you to join our meetings virtually to learn more about us! Visit the websites below to learn more about each club, or contact the president to attend one of our upcoming meetings:
