Welcome to the web site of the Rotary Club of Lantzville. Our club has completed over 25 years of service to our local community in the Lantzville-Nanaimo-Nanoose region of Vancouver Island, Canada. Over that time we have built parks, playgrounds and other community facilities. We have contributed to the large public facilities that make life in our community better and we have embraced the larger community outside our national borders by taking on projects in Africa, Mexico and the Philippines.

However, I am most proud of the work which we have done on smaller projects for needy individuals. Our members have been quick to step forth when people needed a little help to overcome some of life’s hurdles. We have reached out to people in medical emergencies, listened to young readers, purchased running shoes for children in need and provided drivers for people unable to supply their own transportation.

Our club is a hands-on club which has planted flowers, cleaned gardens, painted fences and decorated child care space. We have cooked hamburgers, hot dogs and pancakes; made breakfast, hidden Easter eggs and gathered food for the needy.

Through all of these projects we have maintained a sense of fun and enjoyment. Our club has developed a camaraderie through these work projects that is always evident in our meetings.

Members of the Rotary Club of Lantzville are committed to providing service to our community, but to have fun while doing it.

Over the coming year we will continue to put “Service before self” as we work to make our community a better place. While doing so, we will reach out to others to form new partnerships and to attract new members. Perhaps you will be able to help us in some way with our work!

If you get a chance to join us for breakfast, please do so. We are always happy to have guests, whether members of other Rotary Clubs or interested individuals. In fact, be careful. When you see how much fun we have you might decide to join our club!
