As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, colour, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Rotary cultivates a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture in which people from underrepresented groups have greater opportunities to participate as members and leaders.

The Rotary Club of Strathroy Memorial Trail is just steps away from our downtown area.  It meanders through the municipality allowing those taking advantage of it to enjoy nature at itโ€™s best. 
The trail, on the south and north ends of Strathroy, connects with the Conservation Authority's trail system creating a city-wide public trail system.  The trail begins just east of the corner of Albert St. and Carrie St, and extends all the way through town, continuing through the Conservation Area and up to Second Street.
