The Rotary Club of Fergus-Elora

The Rotary Club of Fergus was chartered in 1966. The club was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Guelph and the Charter Night was held at Paradise Gardens in Guelph. In 1979, the club name was changed to The Rotary Club of Fergus-Elora to recognize the many members from the areas surrounding Fergus, including the Village of Elora.

We have room for new members to join a core group of dedicated Rotarians who will be making strong efforts to expand the club membership in the surrounding area to those who take pride in our local and world community and see value in ‘giving back’.

Our club was a founder of Big-Brothers-Big Sisters in Fergus, St Johns Ambulance in Fergus as well as the KidsAbility office in Fergus. We have made substantial contributions, the most recent being $500,000 to Groves Hospital and will have prominent recognition in Emergency Services Department. Other significant contributions have been to Rotary Accessible Park at Stait Park in Fergus, the children’s splashpad at Milburn Park in Fergus, as well as Rails to
Trails between Fergus and Elora, and the Rotary Heritage Gardens at Wellington Place.

Numerous donations have been made to local and international projects including the Rotary Foundation for the elimination of polio in the world where we have contributed over $150,000. A sample of our donations is listed on our website.

Rotary Club of Guelph Wellington

In 1985 a group of Rotarians decided that it was time to branch off from the Rotary Club of Guelph and charter the Rotary Club of Guelph-Wellington, the second Rotary Club within the City of Guelph.

Thirty-five years later, we recognize our heritage, celebrate the present and look to the future. This club was built in the spirit of the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” by doing projects within the Community and abroad, through Fellowship, Camaraderie and Friendships. Over the years numerous fundraising projects, including our Duck Race, traditionally held on Canada Day have raised $2 million and helped local charities, the community and those less fortunate both at home and abroad.

The work ….. and the enjoyment of the work ….. continue ….. the benefits are contagious. Rotary is always open to those persons who are desirous of playing their part in the betterment of this world. Let us help you, to achieve your goals .…. to help others.
