WELCOME TO
THE ROTARY CLUB OF NORTH BAY

Helping to make a difference in our community, country and around the world since 1923.
 
                                             
 
Welcome to our website. Our membership represents a cross-section of the community - young and not so young, male and female; and includes a great range of vocations. Rotary is the world's oldest service club organization.
 
Our club has adopted a primary focus towards helping children and youth overcome adversity. Largely through the fundraising efforts of Rotary4Kids, Rotary-at-home TV Bingo, Nevada Tickets and Rotary Rose Day, in excess of $175,000 is generated each year to meet this primary focus, as well as our direct/indirect involvement and support of Rotary projects and initiatives with other clubs, our district, and Rotary International at home and around the world. View my goals for the year.
 
We are part of the North Bay 'Family of Rotary', along with the Rotary Club of North Bay-Nipissing and the Rotaract Club of North Bay-Nipissing (young professionals between the ages of 18-30).
 
Please consider coming out to one of our Monday noon meetings at Cecil's - The Grande Event Centre to meet us.

ROTARY NEWS & STORIES
The Rotary Club of North Bay launched its annual fundraiser, with the help of this year’s Rotary4Kids Ambassador, Summer Morison (10), a student at St. Hubert Catholic Elementary School, and representatives from the Nipissing Association for Disabled Youth (NADY) and One Kids Place today at One Kids Place Children’s Treatment Centre.
 
Entering its 15th year, the Rotary club, in partnership with NADY, will be holding its radio-a-thon to raise much needed funds in support of area children and youth with special needs.
 
The longest morning, with 100.5 KiSS morning host Kevin Oschefski, will be broadcast live from Tower Court at Northgate Shopping Centre, on Thursday, March 30th and wrap-up with a final morning show breakfast at Burger World on Hammond Street on March 31st, from 7-10 am.

Promote World Water Day
World Water Day on 22 March is an opportunity to learn about Rotary’s commitment to provide clean water and sanitation.
 
In rural Ghana, seven million people are at risk from waterborne diseases. Rotarians are working with partners to address community water and sanitation needs. 
 
Clean water is a basic human right that many are often denied. There are 2.5 billion people in the world that lack access to improved sanitation and 748 million people that don’t have clean drinking water. Nearly 1400 children die each day from diseases caused by lack of sanitation and unsafe water. When people have access to clean water, they live healthier and more productive lives.
