Dryden Rotarians support our community in many ways and in all kinds of conditions.
CKDR-Rotary Radio Bingo
The Rotary Club's biggest fundraiser runs on CKDR Radio on Thursday evenings from October to April. 
 
All bingo proceeds go to the Dryden Rotary Charity Foundation which has supported numerous Dryden and area organizations and activities with grants totaling over $2 million over the past 15 years.
Dragon Boat Races
 
The Rotary River Rats participate in the annual Canada Day Dragon Boat races that raise funds for the 'Still Me' program at the Dryden Regional Health Centre.
Dryden Blooms
Making Dryden beautiful!
 
The Rotary Club has partnered with the City of Dryden for a number of years on an annual project of beautifying our community with planters and hanging baskets.
Rotary Park
Our signature local project, Rotary Park, is home to a skate park, Dryden's main soccer fields, and the multi-use Dryden Soccer facility, complete with change rooms.
Highway Cleanup
Every spring Rotarians, families, and friends pull on their boots, put on their vests, and pick up their garbage bags to clean up a stretch of Highway 17 east of town.
Dryden Ice Dogs 50/50 Draw
The Dryden Rotary Charity Foundation (DRFC) and the Dryden Ice Dogs hockey organization partner for the 50/50 draw held at all home games.
 
DRFC purchases regular season youth and family passes for elementary school students in the area.
Christmas Tree Pickup
After the holiday season Rotarians pick up residents' Christmas Trees as a community service and a fundraising project.
