Message from the President

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Charlottetown. Rotary is an international service organization - we are 1.2 million members who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. An example is the 1985 launch of our PolioPlus program; the first initiative to tackle global Polio eradication. Since that time and with the help of our partners like the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, we have helped reduce polio cases by 99.9% worldwide.

The Rotary Club of Charlottetown, founded on October 1, 1917, was the 8th Rotary Club chartered in Canada. We are proud of the local projects we have supported including over 60 years of improving the lives of children and people with challenges under our Easter Seals PEI program, being a major donor to Camp Gencheff, participation in the joint Rotary Soup Kitchen project, as well as the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program. 

We are the home of Rotary Radio Bingo, airing every Tuesday from 7-8 PM on CFCY 95.1 FM. With the success of this fundraiser, we've been able to support projects across the Island including volunteering with the Prince Street School and St. Jean School breakfast programs, the Upper Room, and the implementation of a Dialysis Transportation Program to help low income dialysis patients.

For more information about Rotary locally, regionally, and around the world, please explore our website and feel free to contact any of the Rotarians featured here.

Proudly serving the community as a Rotarian,

Corinne Hendricken-Eldershaw, President
Rotary Club of Charlottetown (2022-2023)
