Rotary has given me the ability to grow as a leader and build my confidence over the years. I have been part of Interact, Rotaract, Rotary, RYLA, and have attended several different conferences and conventions. I greatly benefited from Rotary’s youth programs, and they changed my life. Rotary is an international family and a great source of love and support.
With this group of fabulously supportive and welcoming people, my family and I have already been able to support our community in a meaningful way. I am proud to be a Rotarian.
The majority of all my friendships have come from my years of involvement with Rotary.
Rotary has been such an awesome way to give back to the community and connect with some amazing people.
I am very proud to be a member of this Rotary Club. We come together as friends to help build a stronger community. Rotary has also provided me the opportunity to travel to Africa to develop projects for hospitals and schools.
I was introduced to Rotary by several small business owners in Nanaimo and it became clear that this was a group I wanted to be a part of. I am proud to be a member of this wonderful organization and this remarkable group of people.
Rotary is a great way to give back to the local community and beyond. It has been amazing to connect with a group of like-minded people who prioritize giving and fellowship over self.
Rotary gives me the opportunity to connect with members of the community who are like minded and want to affect positive change locally and internationally. The events are great, and the comradery and fun are an added bonus.
I joined Rotary to do some good in this world and to become a better person. I stay in Rotary because of great fellowship and the pride I feel when doing a project and completing it successfully.
I joined the Rotary Club of Nanaimo Oceanside in 2017 and I am a past president of the club. I enjoy Rotary for our club’s caring of and giving to our community. I find Rotary to be a very rewarding endeavor and encourage anyone to join to make a difference.
Joining Rotary was a no-brainer. Having been raised in a family that valued service in the community, it wasn’t a question of volunteering but rather which club I would feel most at home working with for our common goals.
Being able to impact the community and support our youth, through fun and exciting events is a blessing, and being able to do all of this with my friends is what continues to make it all possible.
