Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bowmanville!
You Are the Missing Piece.
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization with more than 1.2 million members in over 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, nationally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto "Service Above Self". We are proud to be a part of this dynamic organization as we celebrate 92 years of service in our community.
Please click on the image below for the brief video, "You Are the Missing Piece".
Please take a few minutes to peruse our website and read our promotional brochure, "This is The Rotary Club of Bowmanville".
Making the world a better place is an intricate puzzle and piece by piece, the women and men of Rotary have worked hard to fight hunger, promote literacy, and move the world toward peace. But there is still much to be done, still some missing pieces, and one of those missing pieces is you. Learn how you can help Rotary put together a better world at Rotary International's website at https://www.rotary.org/. Rotary - Humanity in Motion.

This year, in order to streamline the selection process, the Student Guidance Office at our five local high schools were asked to each select one deserving student based upon several criteria. Those criteria included financial need, academic achievement, and community and extracurricular involvement. The students were also required to write an essay outlining their goals and plans for their future as they relate to the courses they have chosen.
The Rotary Club of Bowmanville is pleased to announce this year's recipients of our bursary program. They are:
* Rachel Witvoet - Durham Christian High School
* Shelby Ravary - St. Stephen's Secondary School
* Carly Diane Chisholm - Clarke High School
* Brittany Foster - Clarington Central Secondary School
