What makes the Rotaract Club of Burnaby special is not just its dynamic team, or its numerous events giving back, but rather how when walking into one of its bi-weekly meetings you’re greeted by an embracing air of welcome, not only from friendly fellow Rotaractors, but also from our dedicated Rotarians who always make the effort to come to our events!
