1917 – 2017
The Rotary Club of Charlottetown was admitted into Rotary International on October 1, 1917 and received its Charter on November 8th of that year having been sponsored by the Rotary Club of Halifax.
Plans were developed with the Rotary Club of Charlottetown giving leadership in celebrating 100 years of Rotary in the Province which included all Island Rotarians and the six Rotary Clubs. Our Club has been active in promoting the concept of Rotary throughout the Province, sponsoring four of the other five clubs currently on the Island: Summerside (1943), Hillsborough (1979), Montague (1985) and Charlottetown Royalty (1987). The Rotary Club of Stratford is the other Island club (2002).
The year will include:
January 1, 2017 Rotary Levee including all Club Executive
January 2017: Premier’s Dinner including all Island Rotarians
August 2017:  Island Youth Exchange Student Event – Old Home Week
October 1, 2017:  Charter Night which will include a visit from RI President Ian Riseley
We will also celebrate the year with a publication spearheaded by Rotarian James Macnutt including the history and activities of all the Rotary Clubs on Prince Edward Island. The publication will contain the history and projects both local and international of the six Island Rotary Clubs.
During the year there will be a Book Launch and Celebration of our Special Centennial Projects. Rotarians will be planting trees provided by the Provincial Government at various locations on Prince Edward Island to mark “100 YEARS OF ROTARY ON PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND”.
We also designed and produced a 100 year commemorative pin for distribution during 2017.
Rotary on Prince Edward Island has a long and distinguished history as we celebrate our accomplishments at home and internationally. It is my hope that our Centennial  Events will bring forth many fond memories as we celebrate 100 Years of Rotary on Prince Edward Island and continue to work together to eradicate polio and celebrate peace in the world.
