Welcome to the Rotary Club of Mississauga
The funds we raise go to the community both locally and worldwide. Our major fundraiser is a July 4-day Ribfest which we run with the Mississauga West Rotary Club. We regularly get over 85,000 visitors to this community event! Our June Lobsterfest has sold-out for years, but we can always find a seat for the all-you-can-eat Lobster-chicken feast! We also support local Mississauga charities such as The Peel Children’s Aid, The Vita Centre for Pregnant & Parenting Youth, PACT and many others.
We are involved in many worthwhile causes including the following: Camp Enterprise is our 3-day live-in workshop for local High School Students. It allows them to experience the world of Business first hand through the standpoint of local business people. A Rotary Exchange Student from a foreign land comes to Canada each year to be hosted by our club’s families for the entire school year. In return, we send out a local student to be hosted by other Rotary Clubs all over the world. Two Mississauga Interact Clubs for High School age Students and a Rotaract Club for those of university age were initiated and continue to operate with our Club’s support. Many local charitable and community causes are supported by our Club. The long list of donations made by our club to these important causes is a great source of pride to us. Our International focus is to rid the world of Polio. Each week we donate funds to immunize 45 children as a way of honouring our weekly speaker. Over the years, we also have also accumulated a long list of international causes such as providing underprivileged areas with clean water, better medical care and improved school conditions.
And What Else Do We Do?
We are proud to have had six District Governors (A. Turner, Dr. R. Watson, Bob Harriman, Dunc Lyall, Jerry Wijngaard, Bernd Dinnert) from our Club over the years.
We have a first class President’s Gala at the Mississaugua Golf & Country Club which is also the location of our meetings.
Our Rotary lunch at the Mississaugua Golf & Country Club is the best meal in the District! We have ‘Guess who’s Coming to Dinner’ Nights to brighten up the dull early winter months. Our President’s Wine & Cheese at Christmas time is very popular. Our summer picnic in Caledon is a prime kid-friendly family affair. The annual Golf Tournament is a great summer season ender. And – — this is only part of what we do! The fun thing about Rotary is that the club is whatever the members want to make of it so our club structure and activities constantly evolve. We take our responsibilities seriously as we work to strengthen our club and the local and international communities we serve.
The heart of Rotary is our clubs, dedicated people who share a passion for both community, service and friendship. Whether you are a student, just starting your career, or at the end of your career and ready for retirement, there are many ways Rotary can help you to become a better leader.
Rotary brings together great minds from nearly everywhere in the world. From college scholarships to our renowned Peace Fellowships, Rotary supports the educational aspirations of thousands of future leaders.
