Welcome to the Rotary Club of Vancouver Fraserview  
The Fraserview Rotary club is located in the heart of the lower mainland and services the area of Fraserview and surrounding areas.  Our club consists of local community leaders from around greater Vancouver including a reach into Downtown Vancouver, leaders who take an active role in their communities, all while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives.   Fraserview is a smaller club that allows our leaders to grow and contribute in ways they might not in a larger club. 
 
Join us for a meeting! Check the column on the left for meetings dates and times, and upcoming events.Members of our Rotary Club connect at weekly meetings and learn from business experts, political and civic leaders, and entrepreneurs, who help us stay informed on topics that are relevant to our community. Together, we make great things happen. We have a structure that focuses on action and positive results.

Peace on Earth and goodwill...

This is the last opportunity to make a difference in our community in 2021.

Its easy, simply skip lunch one day so that others less fortunate can eat at this Christmas season!.

This Christmas, we will simply meet on line instead of at seasons and invite you to simply donate the $29.50 you would have spent, there will not be another lunch until mid Jan, so its easy.

Money will be added to what we raised at the event this week $2,147.00  Lets see if we cant get to $2500!!!

 

 

It's been over 2 years since the last major event and fundraiser, the last one we had a band and were in the Blue Martini, and that was a huge success. 

So this year we are going to duplicate the event and have a back to the Holidays dinner, band and fundraiser. 

Venue is the Fortune Terrace just over the bridge at the front part of Richmond, close to the Olympic centre.  The food is amazing, we had small event there, the people loved the food, and they have a great stage.

The Band is one of the best known in Richmond... Galaxy and play all the songs we love.

We need help as follows:

  • In order that we don't lose money we need people at the dinner... us and guests.
  • Prizes
  • Spread the word, non members would be great to be there.
  • Plan ahead and book early so we know the numbers, the more numbers we have the lower the cost of food per head and the more guarantee we make some profit to donate.

Money will be donated to both the Rotary Foundation and the Union Gospel Mission.

DG Darcy Long presents John Bathurst, Assistant District Governor and member of the Rotary Club of Vancouver
with the Rotarian of the Year Award at this year's District 5040 Conference.
Recently we had the opportunity to contribute to an international project being championed by the West Vancouver Sunrise Rotary club. The RC Bulindo WASH project is a water and sanitation  global grant project  in  Uganda  they are leading.   The grant is  matched by District 5040  at 100%,  and by the Uganda district  at 150%, so  it  would  be a 3.5 times multiplied contribution at any level.    Our Club, Vancouver Fraserview, has donated $610, ($500 U.S.) to help this project.
 
Total budget for the project is just over $68,000
 
Bulindo is a neighborhood in Kira Municipality, Kyaddondo County, Wakiso District, in the Central Region of Uganda.
 
Facilitate and underground well drill project located in the area of the areas school, this will facilitate:
 
  • School children, Teachers and the close by health centre access to clean water
  • The nearby Community that will have access to clean water
  • The health clinic that serves the community
  • Clean water should reduce disruption time for students
  • Improved Hygiene practices
  • Reduce the incidence of water bourn deceases and the cost of medical attention for them.
  • Improve school grades for students
 
 
We have set the goals for giving to $9,000 for this year, so far we have raised and donated $12,800.00

From Darcy Long District Governor 2018-2019
March 30,2021
 
Dear Rotary Family,
 
It is with profound sadness I share with you the news of the passing of our beloved District Governor Dave Hamilton. Dave lost his battle with Prostate cancer last night (Mar 29), with Tanya by his side.
 
There has been such an outpouring of love from all of you, and I have no doubt Dave has felt it and it has helped to comfort him in his final days.
 
As that same love will help Tanya, and Dave’s family, in the days moving forward as we all grieve with them.
 
The Rotary Family has lost a true champion, humanitarian, and friend.
 
Due to the Covid Pandemic restrictions we are unable to meet in person to celebrate Dave at this time.
 
Rest assured as soon as there is an opportunity to gather, notice will go out for a celebration of life to be held at the Beach Grove Golf Club in Tsawwassen as per Dave’s request.
 
We will pass on more information as it becomes known to us.
 
Rest in Peace Dave. Thank you for sharing your dance moves with us.

You were an amazing friend and inspirational leader who will truly be missed.
 
With very heavy hearts,
Darcy and Doug

The regular End of March Meeting which again will be virtual. Zoom Link to follow.

A simple basket of buns is something we take for granted on the lunch or dinner table, but there are many areas of the world where this is not true, and this simple basket of bread would be seen as a gift for families that are starving.  A small amount of money like $2.50 also seems insignificant to us who are fortunate to live in Canada but again that $2.50 can do so much in starving communities, without the simple things is life like clean water, shelter and bread.

For this meeting we challenge the team to simply donate the value of the Buns they would have eaten at a real lunch.  So for this month its an easy $2.50 donation that again will go to the Rotary Foundation.
