Club History
The Rotary Club of Lloydminster has served Lloydminster & District for 90 years -- and provided enjoyment and fellowship to Rotarians and their families along the way.
As this section evolves it will provide the history of the club and it's community projects over the years.  We hope to put faces and names together and share a little bit of the special feeling of our club to members and observers alike
Stay tuned for more information as this portion of our website evolves and grows
