Welcome from the
Rotary Club of Cobourg

 

2016-2017 Rotary Club of Cobourg President, Elaine McDermottThe theme of Rotary International's 2016-2017 President John Germ is "Rotary Serving Humanity". The Rotary Club of Cobourg has a proud 95 year history of doing just that.

 

Since its inception in 1921, the members of our Club have dedicated themselves to the service of others both locally and globally. Indeed serving others is in our nature.

 

Since the onset of the "End Polio" campaign in 1985, our Club has been a leading financial contributor toward the goal of eradicating polio worldwide. Our members have contributed to providing clean water projects, building schools and, although we take them for granted, adding bathroom facilities to schools in third world countries. As well, several of our members have participated in "sweat equity"(hands on) projects in countries such as Cambodia at great personal expense.

 

Locally, over the years we have dedicated almost $1,ooo,ooo to our hospital to fund much needed medical equipment to help ensure that our community is cared for with state of the art care. We have supported our youth through scholarships and our sponsorship of our local Air Cadet Squadron. Through our Special Needs Committee we have committed thousands of dollars installing ramps and providing wheelchairs and other specialized equipment for the disabled. We have paid for dentures, hearing aids and sundry other items to help our neighbours enjoy a more comfortable life. And we have done all of this and so much more over the years through the monies raised by our fundraising efforts.

 

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Cobourg I thank you for your continued support as we strive to "Serve Humanity".
