Notice anything new on the WebComCentre? That's right! We now have banner advertising available, similar to the feature on the club sites. This is a vehicle to raise some unrestricted funds and it gives individuals or corporations an opportunity to reach a wider audience at a very reasonable rate..
Rotary Districts were first established in 1915, at which time the Calgary Downtown Club was the only one in our area. In 1957, the present District was established as District 536 without change to the geographic boundaries of the original District. Since there were only 30 clubs in the District at the time, Governor Glen Peacock of Calgary initiated an extension drive which resulted in eight new clubs receiving their charters, setting a District record.
The Edmonton Club was chartered in 1916.
