What is Rotary ?

We're made up of local business, professional, and civic leaders. 

We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and through that, we're able to get things done in our community.


It's up to YOU.............Join leaders in our community

is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

FIRST The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

SECOND High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful

occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

THIRD The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

FOURTH The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of

business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.


Rotary Code of Conduct provides a framework for ethical behavior that all Rotarians can use, together with The Four-Way Test, in their business and professional activities.


As a Rotarian, I will

  1. Exemplify the core value of integrity in all behaviors and activities

  2. Use my vocational experience and talents to serve in Rotary

  3. Conduct all of my personal, business, and professional affairs ethically, encouraging and fostering high ethical standards as an example to others

  4. Be fair in all dealings with others and treat them with the respect due to them as fellow human beings

  5. Promote recognition and respect for all occupations which are useful to society

  6. Offer my vocational talents: to provide opportunities for young people, to work for the relief of the special needs of others, and to improve the quality of life in my community

  7. Honor the trust that Rotary and fellow Rotarians provide and not do anything that will bring disfavor or reflect adversely on Rotary or fellow Rotarians

  8. Not seek from a fellow Rotarian a privilege or advantage not normally accorded others in a business or professional relationship


of things we think, say and do:

  1. Is it the truth

  2. Is it fair to all concerned?

  3. Will it build good will and better friendships?

  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

GUEST SPEAKER : Dr. Chhabara an Orthopedic surgeon at Lakeridge was introduced by Dr, Kris Sachdeva. Dr. Cahbara came to Oshawa in 2005 after completing his education in Bombay and the United Kingdom. He has had several publications, specializes in shoulder surgery working in Oshawa and Bowmanville. He thanked the Rotary Club of Oshawa Parkwood for our contribution which allowed the purchase the Trimano arm positioning device used in shoulder surgery. The number of shoulder surgeries has increased significantly and this device used primarily in Oshawa is sometimes transported to the Bowmanville site for use in surgeries there. Dr. Chabara noted the financial difficulty in obtaining new surgical equipment. Currently there is a request for “reamers” for tibial nailing, another expensive item.

Vice President David thanked Dr. Chabara


The “ideal of service” is the key.

It is an attitude that does not change from one version to the next.

It is an attitude and passion we all have, as Rotarians.
