ROTARY CLUB OF WESTSHORE
Who Are we?
The Westshore Rotary Club is made up of people who like people and enjoy coming together to cook-up new ideas to do good in the world. We are volunteers who like to laugh, learn and work together for the benefit of others. Currently, our membership includes 25+ friendly men and women ranging in age from 20's to 70's. We are from a variety of business, professional, service and not-for-profit vocational backgrounds.
Come out and join us each Friday at noon at the Alexander Mackie Lodge (753 Station Ave, Langford BC, room 429).
