President's Message
Being part of Rotary is being part of a global community.
With a network of over 35 000 clubs in 200 countries, Rotarians, together, continue to actively serve their local communities and beyond, in fighting diseases, supporting mothers and children, improving sanitation and promoting peace and education.
In our club, we are a tight knit team of volunteers, working hand in hand with the local community to raise funds, support charities and serve those most in need.   
We hold our doors wide open to all those who are looking for a warm and congenial community and are interested in volunteering opportunities. Our weekly meeting is a great place to make new friends, meet old ones, share ideas and catch up on the local news. 
Ouma Cuniah


''We don't need big actions to change the world, we need small, consistent actions that can have a significant impact.''

At the Agape Open School in Tanzania, the girls' lavatory had no roof, leaving them exposed to the elements and a lack of privacy. A brand new roof has now been installed, made possible with the sponsorship of our club and the support of Mary Hickey, Rick Harvey and the Agape Frontiers.

Stratford Youth Centre
March, 2022.  It was a pleasure, on behalf of the Royalty Rotary Club - Stratford Committee, to present a cheque for $500 to the Stratford Youth Centre. 

The focus of the Centre is to provide social and recreational opportunities for youth in Stratford, and have youth become more involved in the 
activities of the Town.
2021-22 Mentor Award
Dr. John VanLeeuwen is the recipient of the 2021-22 Mentor Award.

World Polio Day
October, 2021 - Charlottetown Mayor Phillip Brown and Rotarians from clubs across the city raised a flag at city hall for World Polio Day on October 24, 2021.
The event is among thousands to be held by Rotary across the globe on World Polo Day – October 24, 2021

Since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative nearly 30 years ago, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases a year to 2 cases confirmed as of October 2, 2021.  
Stratford Community Gardens
October 2021 - The Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty helped to fund and construct an extension to the Stratford Community Gardens. Members assisted the Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group in building and filling the new frames for 18 plots.  This will enable more Stratford families wanting to grow their own vegetables.
Donation of an AED
June 2021 - The Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty donated an AED (defibrillator) to the Cooke family for their son, Jack (second left in photo). 
Jack has a heart condition which requires him to always have a portable AED unit close at hand wherever he is….at home, on the school bus, at school or at the beach.
QEH Foundation Golf Tournament
June 2021 - The 18th annual Harry MacLauchlan 'Great Day Fore Health' Memorial Golf Tournament was held on June 16, 2021 at the Belvedere Golf Club.  This year's tournament, organized by the Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty, raised over $70,000 for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation.

April 2021 - Bob Gray from the Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty presented a cheque to Julie McCabe for the Inner City Youth Skills Camp for 2021. This annual funding provides an opportunity for young people who ordinarily would not be able to go to a camp in the summer, and the Rotarians are  always happy to be able to support it.
Premier's State of the Province Address
On Feb. 22, 2021, Premier Dennis King presented the Premier's State of the Province Address. This annual Rotary event is normally a dinner and Premier's address to the Rotary Clubs of P.E.I., however this year, due to Covid-19, it was delivered over the government's Facebook and Youtube channels to all Islanders. The event was hosted this year by the Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty, with club president Ouma Cuniah giving opening remarks and thanking the premier afterwards.
Stationary Bikes for St. Jean Elementary
Feb. 2021 - Our club approved the purchase of six stationary spin bikes for St. Jean Elementary.  These bikes will be used as part of the school's Flexible Learning Centre, which helps students learn ways to self-regulate themselves in a safe and supportive environment. The goal is to reduce challenging behaviours, improve social interaction and academic success.
In the photo, Past President Gary Conohan presents the spin bikes to Tracey McAskill, Youth Service Worker at St. Jean Elementary.
REACH Foundation donation
Aug. 2020 - President Gary Conohan had the pleasure of presenting a cheque to Colleen VanWesterneng of the REACH Foundation.  Our Club’s $10,000 donation will assist with funding of the Reach for the Stars after school program for junior high aged youth at risk of mental health and addiction challenges.
Support for QEH Foundation
Recently our QEH Golf Committee toured the Endoscopy Department of the hospital with Paula Triantafillou, Clinical Lead/Educator.
This year, funds raised from our QEH Golf Tournament will support the purchase of two Colonoscopes for the QEH Endoscopy Department. The Department’s original fleet of scopes is eight years old and at the end of their life cycles. The QEH requires 13 new scopes to ensure patients continue to receive optimal care, diagnosis and treatment.
The annual Harry MacLauchlan "Great Day Fore Health" Memorial Golf Tournament has raised $722,519.00 to date for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation. This year's tournament will be held on June 10th, 2020 at the Belvedere Golf Course.
