Community minded individuals from Calgary banded together in 1961 to start the Rotary Club Calgary North (RCCN). Over the years RCCN has contributed to numerous local and international causes.
These are primarily funded through fund raising events. All funds garnered through fund raising are directed towards service projects.
RCCN is a very active, diverse and social club. We are a group of service oriented individuals that enjoy community work. Members take on various roles and responsibilities in the club that allows RCCN to leverage the knowledge and background of each member to provide service to the local, national, and global communities of which we are a part. Through service, we make lifelong friendships that transcend political, cultural, and generational boundaries and foster global understanding and respect.
RCCN also provides networking opportunities for members and opportunities for mentoring and training to develop Rotary leaders. In addition, we host numerous social gatherings enable us to foster friendships between members that further support our community service.
