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 District Governors and to have sponsored five new clubs.

“There can be no better introduction to the life of a community than one that comes through the local Rotary club” ~ Paul Harris, Founder of Rotary

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 at 25 Clute Street as a monument to our hardworking, dedicated Rotarians. More recent projects include playground equipment, scholarships and bursaries, and the Rotary Crosstown Greenway. We have made financial contributions to the UBC/Douglas College Dentistry Program, The Honour House Society and the Youth Centre at Moody Park. We have just held our “Fountains of Laughter” where the proceeds were used to fund the Rotary drinking fountains at the brand new Westminster Pier Park.
