About Us

Chartered 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:

  • Our Mushroom Compost Sale in the spring – local gardeners are able to buy large bags of mushroom compost for $8/bag, delivered to their home

  • Our November "Just Because…" Rose sale – where we offer 12 long stem roses for $20 per dozen.

  • A Casino Night held at the end of March
  • A 50/50 draw at the Bridge Street Bazaar, at the beginning of August.

  • Starting in 2017, sponsorship of the Womens' Fair

We meet each on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at the Thirsty Moose, 20 Bridge Street, in Carleton Place at 6:00 pm.  Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.
