Here you can learn more about our Club, whether you are a student looking for information on post-secondary financial aid,a non-profit association hoping to partner with us on a special project, or simply wondering if becoming a Rotarian might be a service opportunity to add to your professional life. Rotary International celebrates the individuality of each club, leaving each to shape its service projects to meet the needs of the community it serves.  Our club places most of its emphasis on youth in Sooke's local community, though we are also active citizens in the world community.
 

 
Our Club had the pleasure of getting involved with John Muir Elementary School, in preparing a community garden. This will be used a teaching tool to learn about gardening and growing food, as well as an opportunity for the kids and adults alike to get outdoors and get their hands dirty with some healthy work.  We were happy to be able to provide some funding and some person power, with a productive and fun work party.  Thank YOU to the school administration, teachers, parents, and volunteers! A great collaboration on a COMMUNITY project.
 

 
Thank you Sooke for your generosity and good spirits. A great time had by all at Saturday's Auction & Spring Fair. Plus a lot of funds raised, helping our Club continue giving back to our wonderful community.

Rotary Club of Sooke Mingle
The last Thursday of each month the Rotary Club of Sooke invites its members and Sooke residents to the Little Vienna Bakery, 6-6726 West Coast Road, for coffee and conversation between 4:30 and 5:30 pm.  It provides local and visiting Rotarians with a chance to catch up on Club news.  It also gives interested Sooke residents an opportunity to find out about, and to suggest, Rotary activities in the community and elsewhere.  Our next meeting will be on Thursday, August 25th.  Hope to see you there!

Sooke Rotary President Trevor Colley was invited to attend the Scout Jamboree in July at Camp Bernard.  Pictured is Trevor cutting the ribbon for the event and touring "the facilities".  Sooke Rotary contributed to the development of new showers and washrooms. A great week for the Scouts and a useful "relief project" by our club!
