What we do . . .
Posted By Ken Walker
Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach Sunrise 2015 Activities
Here are some examples of the things we do in our community.
Community Clean Up
Each year in April our Community Service Committee organizes a Town Clean up to collect garbage along the major arteries throughout our town and along the beachfront. The town provides the bags, gloves, safety vests and coffee for the morning start and Rotarians and residents take care of the rest. This is a great community pride project.
Fire and Ice
Father’s Day Show and Shine
The Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach sets up and serves hundreds of burgers, smokies, hot dogs and smoothies to the attendees of this annual event. The majority of members assist and it is a great community event.
Beach Day is an annual Qualicum Beach event. Thousands of people roam the beach to have fun and learn more about our wonderful beach and sea life. Sunrise Rotary sets up a tent and helps the children build sand castles and create enormous bubbles.
The Rotary Club of Parksville AM and the Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach Sunrise work together on this project. Coats are collected and distributed throughout the Oceanside area.
Our 2015 Roses from Rotary sale is underway. Roses will be delivered on Saturday October 24.
This is a new project taken on by our club. Our plan is to assist with the maintenance of the Storybook Village area so that area children will have a fun and safe area to have fun.
Enjoy the Christmas ambiance of beautifully decorated Oceanside homes with this self guided tour. At your convenience stop in to one of the participating restaurants to enjoy a discount on your lunch. Rotarians are present at each home and offer assistance where needed.
Man the Salvation Army Christmas Kettles
Our Club has traditionally supported the kettle campaign and volunteers to staff the Kettles over the Christmas season.
