Welcome to the Rotary Club of Vancouver Fraserview  
The Fraserview Rotary club is located in the heart of the lower mainland and services the area of Fraserview and surrounding areas.  Our club consists of local community leaders from around greater Vancouver including a reach into Downtown Vancouver, leaders who take an active role in their communities, all while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives.   Fraserview is a smaller club that allows our leaders to grow and contribute in ways they might not in a larger club.

The first years of the Rotary Club

The first Rotary Club was formed when attorney Paul P. Harris called together a meeting of three business acquaintances in downtown Chicago, United States, at Harris's friend Gustave Loehr's office in the Unity Building on Dearborn Street on February 23, 1905.[8] In addition to Harris and Loehr (a mining engineer and freemason[9]), Silvester Schiele (a coal merchant), and Hiram E. Shorey (a tailor) were the other two who attended this first meeting. The members chose the name Rotary because initially they rotated subsequent weekly club meetings to each other's offices, although within a year, the Chicago club became so large it became necessary to adopt the now-common practice of a regular meeting place.
