Are you part of a local organization in Lantzville, Nanaimo or Nanoose Bay that could use some financial help?  We invite you to fill in this online application for funding. 
 

 
 
 
Each year the members of the Rotary Club of Lantzville vote for who they think deserves this distinguished title. The winner is someone who unselfishly dedicates their time, skills, organizational ability and motivational skills to inspire other  Rotarians to continue to do good for the community and our International projects.
 
This year’s winner is Dave Elgie who joined our club over 5 years ago.  In that short time he has continually rolled up his sleeves and got involved. With his woodworking skills he led us in the construction of fences and gardens at Nanaimo Hospice. Dave has headed up our Monthly breakfast for the 7-10 Club in downtown Nanaimo where under his leadership we routinely cook breakfast for 200 – 300 of the less fortunate.  Living in Lantzville he keeps his eyes and ears open to the pulse of local events we can get involved in. Need a prize co-ordinator for a golf tournament, Dave and his wife Elfie turn their home into prize central for several weeks. Looking for candid, honest feedback of how our club is doing and sticking to our mission – you know where to go. For exemplifying the Rotary logo – “Service above Self”, we proudly congratulate Dave Elgie as the Rotary Club of Lantzville's Rotarian of the Year 2016
 
 
 
 The Rotary Club of Lantzville has taken on the challenge (opportunity)  of providing breakfast to some of Nanaimo's less fortunate citizens one Saturday a month at the 7-10 Club on Prideaux street for another year.
Up to 15 volunteers gather at 7:30AM on the 4th Saturday each month to start cooking and set things up.  The doors open at 9AM and we serve pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausages, toast, coffee and juice. Serving our community and having fun at the same time. Want to join the fun. We are always looking for new members.

Who would set a goal to defeat a pernicious disease and wipe it from the face of the earth? Who would tackle such an outrageous goal, set a timetable for achieving it and then work toward making it come true?

Rotary did!

 

 
 

One of the Rotary projects which is not well known is the chance it provides young people to travel and mingle with other young people from around the world. Youth services is one of Rotary's Avenues of Service and part of that is the Rotary Youth Exchange program.

Young people of high school age can apply for one of two opportunities to travel. There is a Short Term Exchange Program and a Long Term Exchange Program. 

The Short Term Exchange Program allows students to travel to a foreign country for approximately 4 weeks and reciprocate by bringing a young person from the other country home to visit with them. This is a family to family exchange in which the Canadian student stays in the home of a young person in another country and a student from the other country returns to stay with the student's family here.

The Long Term Exchange lasts for an entire year and does not have the return requirement. Instead the Nanaimo student would stay in 4 different homes for 3 months each, while attending the same school. This allows the student to sample life in the foreign country and to build language skills in the home language. There is also an opportunity to host a student from another country for a period of time as we often have students visit Nanaimo and always require host families for the visitors.

Students are asked to provide the name of a country of choice and where that is possible the exchange is made with that country. Sometimes there is a lack of host families or some other difficulty that makes it impossible for the student to travel to the country of choice, but every effort is made to make the choice work for the student.

While away the student is cared for by the Rotary clubs of the country being visited. Rotary has a structure in place to ensure the student is safe and comfortable while exploring a different way of life.

In Nanaimo the five Rotary clubs co-operate to send students away and to bring exchange students here. If you are interested in learning more about the student exchange programs offered by Rotary, contact any Rotarian or use the contact information on this page to contact our club. It could change your life.
