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. 
 
Join us for a meeting! Check the column on the left for meetings dates and times, and upcoming events.Members of our Rotary Club connect at weekly meetings and learn from business experts, political and civic leaders, and entrepreneurs, who help us stay informed on topics that are relevant to our community. Together, we make great things happen. We have a structure that focuses on action and positive results.

COVID 19 – Safety Plan Rotary Club of Vancouver Fraserview
 
As our club returns to regular lunch meetings we have worked through exactly how it will work to keep our members safe and the facility.  Following are the steps people will need to take when attending the lunch meeting:
  • We have a private room for our use at Seasons in the Park, only our members and 1 server from the restaurant will be in this space.
  • Our server will be wearing a face mask
  • Table will be limited to the number of people allowed under the restaurant guidelines, we will simply use more tables.
  • When arriving and parking, we strongly suggest for you to use a mobile app as a touch free way to park
  • Note there will be no valet available to park cars in the foreseeable future.
  • If you need to use the parking meter, then please use tap rather than slide in credit card, there is no longer coin options an the meter, and please clean hands after the transaction.
  • Each person needs to wear a mask when arriving at the facility, we will provide one if you do not have.
  • When entering each person needs to use the hand sanitizer that we will have at the entrance, please be mindful of not lining up closely when entering.
  • Once you are in the restaurant masks do not have to be worn with the following exceptions:
    • Any Speaker at the front or in the room must wear a mask when addressing the entire group (projection re louder voices)
    • Anyone at a table who either asks a question of the entire room, or is asked to speak to the entire room, will have to raise the volume of their voice and we ask that you put on the mask before speaking.
    • O Canada – because this is singing in a group, all people that sing need to place on a mask before starting, anyone not wearing a mask is asked to simply to stand and not sing.
  • We will not be able to shake hands or hug, and polite, brief elbow touch is okay. 
  • Items that are handed out like pins, will be handed out in a plastic baggie, and not pinned on the person.  The same with any kind of certificate etc.
  • We would like to keep the meetings as short and timely as possible to reduce the amount of time we are in the facility, but for the safety of members, but also for the safety of the staff and facility.
  • For paying dues, lunch fees etc, we will not be able to accept cash for the foreseeable future, please sign up and pay online, we will leave the payment portal open for 2 days after the event so that you can pay after the fact if you forget and show up with cash.  Or you can use credit cards at the lunch to pay. BUT NO CASH WILL ACCEPTED.
  • Business cards CANNOT be exchanged.
  • These protocols are for all members and guests.  If you are bringing or inviting a guest then please ensure that they have read these protocols.  You are responsible for your guest.
  • This is posted on our website and will be updated from time to time.
 
Thank you

Rotary Club of Fraserview has sent a cheque and will present a photoshoot cheque of $1,200 to Educating Girls of Rural China this group came in and presented to us at our lunch in February. 
 
“Educating Girls of Rural China makes a real difference in the lives of young women who would otherwise be left behind and forgotten. It also helps to identify and support the future leaders that China needs. What impresses me most about the organization is its patient attention to each individual girl through every step of her advanced education.”
David Mulroney, Former Canadian Ambassador to China

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Jan. 7, 2020 — Members of Toastmasters and Rotary will enhance their skills, broaden their networks and increase their positive impact in communities through a new collaboration.

The ongoing relationship between the two organizations will begin at the grassroots level with local club members learning and working together. Additionally, Toastmasters will create a set of eight structured communication and leadership development courses for Rotary with a phased rollout that will be available in English in 2020, and in more languages in 2021.
