The Rotary Club of Calgary West is a "can-do" club that has been highly integrated into our community.

  • Our Vision: An improved world, one project at a time.
  • Our Mission: To serve and to lead through local and international projects which enrich lives and brighten the future for all.
  • Our Values: We do this with truth, fairness, goodwill and friendship.

A typical Rotary meeting includes a great meal, fellowship, a short time for project reports, and an interesting presentation.

Calgary West first met in the Holiday Inn on May 26, 1967. We had 31 members and 2 visitors from our sponsoring club, Calgary Manchester (now Calgary South), who came to explain the aims and ideals of Rotary and how a club operates.
