Founded in 1917, the Rotary Club of Regina is the city’s oldest service club of any kind. It is responsible for the creation of Rotary Park, as well as 60+ years of support to the Salvation Army Kettles and over 75 years of hosting the annual Rotary Christmas Carol Festival. We also provide service and donations to many other community projects and programs including the First Steps Wellness Center, Hope's Home, Soul's Harbor Rescue Mission, the Access Children's fund and to name a few.
Internationally, the club continues to support the Ripple Effect Program - building schools in Guatemala; Shelter Box – a disaster relief program that delivers emergency shelter to people worldwide; and Polio Plus – a vaccination program that has worked towards the eradication of polio for over 30 years.
Our latest international project was to support a Tanzania Albinism project where persons with Albinism are hunted/mutilated for their body parts. As very few get any education, Rotary funds provided a safe education.
Since 1959 our club has been focused on providing opportunities for Regina's youth. Each year we participate in Rotary's International Youth Exchange Program, where we send students overseas for long or short exchange programs. We also are big believers in the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards experience, a week long summer camp that fosters business and leadership skills. Our club's signature youth program is the Adventures in Agriculture program, part of Rotary's many Adventures programs, where high school students from across Canada are brought to Regina to learn about Agriculture.
Other local organizations we support include the Regina Branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Chili for Children, the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre, and the Open Door Society, to name a few. Finally, the Rotary Club of Regina Eastview also support education internationally by supporting the Ripple Effect Program. Through this amazing program, our club has been responsible for building several schools in Guatemala.
Our club is driven to make a difference in our community and the world, and build fellowship across all demographics. If that is your goal also, we invite you to join us for a meeting.
Founded in 1986 our club is a small group of committed individuals with meetings more like family dinner and convenient for business people in Regina's North East and East end. (but of course we welcome all to attend). Our goal is to build our community locally and globally.
Our club is well known for our Pancake Breakfast in late July - which is our major fundraiser, but we also sell BBQ meat packages year round. These two major fundraising efforts help us to support organizations like the Salvation Army, The Ripple Effect Program, and the North Central Family Center to name a few.
We host lunches for community dances for the disabled. We fund raise and support local charities like Visitation House, Christmas kettles and Raise a Reader. We even have our own scholarship program for promising Grade 12 students from needy families. Our members also support Rotary International’s great charities like Polio Plus and the Rotary Foundation.
The Industrial Parks Rotary Club is committed to supporting each other through friendships and business networking opportunities. We'd love you to join us for lunch!
The Rotary Club of Regina Oskaya is proud to be a part of the long tradition of Rotary clubs throughout the world that have saved and influenced countless lives. Regina Oskaya was founded in 2009 and is the youngest club in Regina and Rotary District 5550. Our name ‘Oskaya’ is a Cree word meaning youth, and our club reflects this in both our membership and the projects we choose to do in our efforts to live up the Rotary motto “service above self”.
Regina South was chartered in 1978, and has a mandate to serve our community with a focus on supporting Literacy development, programs that help our at-risk youth, and efforts to reduce homelessness in our city. We have committed to spend 75% of our fundraising dollars in the community and 25% is directed to service Internationally. We are very proud that our club has a diverse makeup in terms of age, gender, and nationality to represent our city.
The money we raise goes towards the Rotary Youth Leadership Award program, the Mock United Nations Assembly experience, CityKids, Regina Food For Learning, Mother Teresa Middle School and the Salvation Army Sam Waterston Center. We are always open to new ideas for programs and fundraisers, and will continue to provide resources that support programs in our city.
