Established in 2002, the Rotary Club of Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills is actively involved in a number of activities within the community. Since our inception, the Club has donated over $150,000 for projects and assistance within the communities of Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills, and Beckwith.
Our major project to-date was the creation of the Rotary Centennial Trail – a nature trail running from the Appleton hamlet in Mississippi Mills to Carleton Places – which we built to celebrate the 100 Anniversary of the founding of Rotary International. We also built a large deck, in two stages, for the Community Living Association on Victoria Street.
The Club raises funds through several major activities:
