Our Club History

Posted by John Luross
The Beginning
In 1985 there were three Rotary Clubs in Saskatoon; Saskatoon Rotary Club (1917); Rotary Club of Saskatoon Nutana (1961); and Rotary Club of Saskatoon North (1979).
There was a strong feeling among Rotarians that the growing city could support a new club. It was noted that the three existing clubs all met at noon (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday). An alternate meeting time would be attractive to potential new members.
Rotarians John Egnatoff, Herb Clark and Jack Gibson provided the leadership needed to organize a new club. They held information meetings in January and February 1985 and held the first executive meeting on March 4,1985. The new Club, to be named Meewasin,was granted provisional status by District Governor Colin Ransom on March 25th. There were 22 members of the new club which held a Charter Night on May 13, 1985 under the leadership of President Herb Clark. The club met at 7:00 am on Monday mornings in the hotel at the corner of 1st Ave and 22nd Street as it does today.

PDG Harold Empey receives Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal Award

On April 06, 2016, Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield announced the recipients of the 2015 Saskatchewan Volunteer Medal.
I am thrilled to be attending the ceremony to watch my soul Dad- Harold Empey be given this award. Harold has acted as a trailblazing inclusion agent. He was integral in opening Rotary International membership to women in the early 1990s. He has contributed to Saskatchewan's "globalization" long before it was a word we used in textbooks.
