Rotary members are people of action. In spite of the fact that the Rotary Club of Kemptville is made up of fewer than 15 members, we get a lot done in our community and internationally too. 

On Tuesday, September 19th, we will be getting an early start on the day with a breakfast meeting at the Long Reach Restaurant on County Rd 44. We are meeting at 7 am and invite anyone else who is interested in making a difference to join us to learn more.

One of the things that we do is ensure that we provide four $1,000 bursaries to graduating students from local high schools. We work with the Kemptville Youth Centre in all of their fundraising efforts. We host a special meal event at Camp Merrywood, we provide funds to purchase smoke free stoves to families in Central America and we took a leadership role in raising money in this community for the people in Ukraine. There are many times that we assist community groups with their efforts – pancake breakfasts, Kemptville Live, and parades. Look around at any special event in our community and you will likely find a Rotary member making a difference. Please join us and find out more about how Rotarians are people of action.
