Members of Rotary provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Semiahmoo Rotary was chartered in 1989 and currently has 60+ members, both men and women over 30 years of age, from many different professional backgrounds. Our members are interested in giving back to both our local community and the global community. Each member contributes according to their abilities. We donate money to various causes and we have hands-on work projects, so everyone can be involved.
Five Avenues of Service:
Semiahmoo Rotary has three Major Annual Events:
Wine and Dine in April raises more than $23,000 annually. Participating restaurants in White Rock donate all the food for this successful event. Have fun with your friends and enjoy great food from our local eateries.
Our Annual Golf Tournament is held in early June, raising over $1.2 million in total since 1989 with 50% donated to the Peace Arch Hospital and the remainder used for various projects locally.
The SASSY (Service Above Self Surrey Youth) Awards are held in the spring and honour youth aged 15 to 21 from Surrey and White Rock who are making a difference in our community by demonstrating the Rotary ideal of Service Above Self.

Inspiring and motivational, Velaphi shared with us her journey from Zimbabwe, growing up with her grandparents as her father died when she was two and her mother moved to Canada. She lived with her grandparents and was well acquainted with poverty, hunger and no access to education.
