Administrative history

The Rotary Club of Campbell River (club 6224), sponsored by the Rotary Club of Courtenay was chartered on April 10, 1946. A celebration of this event was held at the community hall in Campbellton. When established Dr. Ken Craig was the first president and other board members included: F.E. McCarthy (treasurer), Carl O Thulin, Oscar Thulin, A.G. McLean, K.W. Brown, J.H. Burgess.

Although the club charter night was April 10, several (weekly) meetings of the new club took place before then. The first meeting was held on March 13, 1946. The club immediately became involved in community activities and one of their earliest community projects was supporting the construction of a new hall for the Boy Scout's.

Over the years the club has been a part of a number of significant community activities and undertaken a number of community projects. Some of those significant projects include involvement in the building of the community halls, the Centennial Outdoor Pool and ice arena, the Rotary Beach Park and Seawalk and the Cari Infant and Toddler Centre.

Additionally the Rotary Club of Campbell River sponsored the chartering of several new rotary clubs in the area including Port Hardy, Sayward, Gold River and the Campbell River Daybreak Rotary. The Rotary Club of Campbell River continues to have an active role in the community.
