Rotary Club of St. John's East
WHO WE ARE - The Rotary Club of St. John's East was chartered on June 4, 1993 through sponsorship from the Rotary Club of St. John's. Our membership is currently around 50 members and growing. As early risers, we meet 7:30 am every Friday morning at the Sheraton Hotel Newfoundland, in Cavendish Square in downtown St. John's. Humour abounds and our meetings are widely viewed by visiting Rotarians and guests as being very upbeat and entertaining. St. John's East has a reputation for being a very forward looking club which makes a valuable contribution to improving the lives of those less fortunate at both the local and international level. In recognition of its efforts, during the 2006/07 Rotary year, the Rotary Club of St. John's East was recognized as the outstanding club in all of District 7820 which encompasses some 46 clubs throughout Atlantic Canada.
WHEN and WHERE WE MEET - The Rotary Club of St. John's East meets every Friday at 7:30 am at the Sheraton Hotel Newfoundland, 115 Cavendish Square, St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
WHAT WE DO - Our club is a diverse group of professional leaders working to address various community and international service needs and our members are our most important asset. from 1995 to 2010, we have had one main fundraising event, our annual Wheels and Deals Gala that have enabled us to provide over $600,000 to local projects and programs that addressed a wide range of needs. In 2011, we introduced our first annual Valentines Ball which raised $37,833 in aid of Ronald MacDonald House and the Penney Family YMCA building funds and other causes. In 2012 we raised over $38,000 for our Rotary Read-A-Long Program, Bishop Abraham Elementary (our adopted school) and to respond to requests received by our Club Foundation for financial support. Now, in 2013 we have inaugurated an exciting new FUNdraiser "ROTFL" Comedy Event on Friday, March 1, 2013 in support of the Bannerman Park Rotary Splash Pad and our other Rotary causes. We are pleased to tell you that we were successful in raising over $35,000 and have set the stage for more "ROTFL" in the future.
