Who We Are in Brief
The Rotary Club of Nanaimo North has been in existence since October 15, 1972 and since that time the club has been actively involved in service to the Nanaimo community.
Over the past ten Rotary years,  The Rotary Club of Nanaimo North has donated more than $413,000 in our community and beyond.
During that same period, individual club members have also made personal donations to the Rotary Foundation totaling more than $80,000.
 
The Club is a strong supporter of youth both locally and internationally providing funding for various annual scholarships, and sponsoring and mentoring local Interact and Rotaract youth service clubs as well as supporting projects like Project Amigo in Mexico, the Etta Projects in Bolivia and several projects in Zimbabwe, Kenya & Ghana.
 
In addition to financial contributions the club members also donate their time and skills to various community events and projects. The most recent examples of this are bartending at the annual Dragon Boat Festival, delivering a monthly community breakfast program, working with Nanaimo Youth Services on the restoration of Rowe House for their youth housing project and various service projects at John Barsby Secondary and Brechin Elementary schools.

Doug Pearson announced at our June 21st meeting  that the final report detailing completion of the project at St. Hubert’s basic school has been accepted by the District 5020 Foundation Committee.  Foundation Chair, Bill McCarthy wrote: “congratulations! You have made education safer through the provision of the basics; water, electricity, etc. for students at St. Hubert’s. Your partnerships and “boots on the ground” mad this possible. Further, the Mid Island Group enabled this project to be adequately funded.”

Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now

Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
