Rotary Club of Dunnville Scholarship
 
Overview
 
The Rotary Club of Dunnville has been serving the community since 1993. While Rotary may be international in scope, it is local involvement that is often the spark of real change. Our local projects include sponsoring poverty alleviation groups like Dunnville Bridges, hosting youth dances and supporting youth organizations like Haldimand 4H, Touch of Haven and many more.
 
From Rotary International:
 
“Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
 
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.”
