Welcome! 

The Rotary Club of New Westminster was organized and chartered in 1928. Since that time, we have been proud to have six of our members serve as Govenors of our district and to have sponsored five new clubs.

We have weekly meetings. Our lunch meetings start at noon at The Bavaria Haus at 233 Sixth Street New Westminster. We also have one evening meeting on the LAST Thursday of the month starting at 5:30pm at Boston Pizza, Columbia Square Plaza, 1045 Columbia St, New Westminster

Our club participates in a number of fund raising activities within the New Westminster community. These funds are used to support many local and international projects. In 1969, we embarked on a plan to build a high rise apartment building for low-income senior citizens which we continue to support. The seed money was raised by the club and with the help of the City of New Westminster, the Provincial Government and the Federal Governments. Today, the Rotary Tower stands as a monument to the hard working, dedicated Rotarians. More recent projects include playground equipment, Youth Programs such as scholarships and bursaries, Rotary Youth Leadership Programs and the UBC/Douglas College Dentistry Program.


“…There is so much pleasure in Rotary activities. The breakfast,
luncheon, or dinner every week brings you in contact with your fellow
members.

Their diverse interests and knowledge stimulate your interest in your
community…

The planning for service projects both close by or across some distant
horizon carries us out of our own self-interest into the wonderful world
of service to others…and

the pleasing paradox…that we grow in stature when we give of our time
and talent to improve the quality of life for someone else.

How ironic that when we give dignity to someone else, we grow in dignity
ourselves…”
