Our Causes

  
 
What We Do
A large group from the Calgary West Rotary Club set out to to cleanup our designated 3 kilometer section of the north side highway #1. The group met at 9:00 AM on Saturday July 24, 2021 in the parking lot of Calaway Park and received instructions from Clarence Buckley. Clarence provided the volunteers with bright orange garbage bags and led smaller groups to assigned sections of the highway for cleanup. The cleanup completed at approximately 11:00 AM and the group got together for a bite and some fellowship at the Humpty's restaurant located at the interchange of highways #1 and #22.
 
During our weekly meeting on Monday August 9, 2021, Kurt Scherer, chair of Local Community Services presented a cheque from our club in the amount of $12,320 to Jean Claude at Umoja Community Mosaic. From LCS came $9,570 for a food security program and $$2,750 from youth budget for 10 notebooks. Jean Claude expressed his appreciation and acknowledged the long standing relationship his organization has with our club. He will be back in six months time to give us an update.
 
On Thursday July 22, 2021 the Calgary West Rotary Club successfully completed our annual BC Fruit Fundraiser, previously named BC Cherries Fundraiser.
