Ladner Rotary contributes to Ladner Village plaza now under construction
Stokes and Cullis Plaza is under construction at the entrance to Ladner Village. The project involves infrastructure and electrical upgrades to support new landscaping, seating, and lighting, including the construction of a new beacon sign for the village. Construction began on March 16 and final completion is expected for some time in August. The plaza will become a meeting place at the centre of the community.
Rotary Club of Ladner is contributing $25,000 towards the project for the installation of two e-bike charging stations and a large timber drifter bench. These two contributions will encourage visitors to explore Ladner Village in an easy, sustainable manner, while also providing a social space within the Plaza. Funding for this contribution comes mainly from the Ladner Rotary, but also from The Rotary Foundation through District 5040 of 49 clubs in the region. Photo of an e-bike charging station.

Rotary promotes the value of, and commitment to, Youth Service
Every year, over 350,000 young leaders participate in Rotary’s youth programs across Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), and Rotary Youth Exchange. Rotary’s Youth Service Month is an opportunity to promote our young leaders’ local and global impacts and the Rotary and Rotaract clubs that make these programs possible.
Nominate young leaders for Delta Youth Awards
The Rotary Clubs of Ladner, North Delta and Tsawwassen are seeking candidates for this year's Delta Youth Awards. BY MAY 29th please nominate young people from your family, friends and neighbours. We want to recognize the service and achievements of over 30 young people throughout Delta who have contributed to our community and world without seeking personal reward or accolades.
Raise a Flag for our community in 2023
Local residents and businesses in South Delta can celebrate national pride in their neighbourhoods and on their street fronts with a flag of Canada planted on their front lawn for a week around each of two key dates in 2023: Canada Day on July 1st and Remembrance Day on November 11th. The fee will contribute to services to make our community of Ladner and Delta a better place to live, work and play.
With a donation towards community service projects, the Rotary Clubs of Ladner and Tsawwassen will plant a Canadian flag, on a 10-foot pole, on your lawn or in your garden a few days prior to each of Canada Day and Remembrance Day as a display of community and national pride for a donation of $60 for the season. Then a week later they will remove the flags.
