What Our Members Have To Say

  • Joining Chinook Rotary has been a tremendous and rewarding opportunity for me. Both Personally and Professionally. The principles and values of Rotary fit into my daily life while giving me great fulfillment. The friends made within Chinook Rotary, have helped me in personal growth and business. The fulfillment of volunteering and touching others, within the club is a true gift, which comes with gratitude.

    Dawn Rennie
  • I am a born and raised Calgarian and have always heard good things about the work Rotary does but I didn’t really know that much about who they are or what exactly they do.  I joined the Rotary Club of Calgary Chinook 2 ½ years ago because I was looking for a way to give back to my community while meeting new people and hopefully, building some business connections along the way.  I take great pride in the projects we support, the friendships I have made and most off all, being able to call myself a Rotarian.
