Our District Community Grant application has been approved!!

Once more the Rotary Club of Victoria will be offering clean water to nine communities in Western Kenya and transforming the polluted water sources.

With permission from our District Public Image Chair we are launching the District 5020 Member Facebook Group. A Facebook "Group" invites members to join. Once accepted into the closed group - they are encouraged  to contribute, post and comment on District wide Rotary topics, so this is for "internal" communications among District 5020 Rotarians and friends such as youth exchange students,  Interact, Rotaract, alumni, etc etc. 



Text TREE to 45678.

We have proudly sponsored a tree at the 26th Annual Victoria Festival of Trees in support of BC Children's Hospital, on from Nov 14 until January 2, 2018 at The Bay Centre. 

Last year 2,761 children from Vancouver Island visited BC Children’s Hospital 7,900 times for treatment. That is an average of 22 local kids per day. 

In the spirit of the season, and to support our local children, we ask you to join us in helping BC's kids by donating to our fundraising campaign.

Thank you, and we wish a warm and happy holiday season to you and your loved ones.

Fellow Rotarians:
Would you like to see the fruits of all your donations? Since 2001 we have had the privilege of implementing projects in Western Province in Kenya. We are putting forward the possibility of an organised tour in February 2019 to the area where we have been working and where the projects have taken place. 
We believe Rotarians and others would welcome the availability of an organised ‘adventure holiday’ where they could catch a glimpse of the real Africa and the people who have benefited from your generosity, opening the lines of communication and friendship. 
For an outline of the tour, please contact Detailed supplementary information is available. Our phone number is 250 385 6166. We would love to have you join us, but if you are not able, please pass this opportunity along to others. Thank you. 
Yours in Rotary. Patricia and Rod Crossley
