Glen Peacock
It was during his year as District Governor in Alberta that the Rotary Club of Fairview was organized. “As Canada pushes back its frontier,” he then predicted, “Rotary will move deeper and deeper into the Northland. Bad roads and cold weather are no match for the Rotary spirit.” Glen was a member of the Rotary Club of Calgary. He served our district as District Governor 1954-55 and as an RI director 1958-60. Under his guidance, the first extension Calgary club in 1955 was formed then known as the Manchester Club. Manchester later became Rotary Club of Calgary South. His classification was motion-picture theatres, Theatre owner.

The Recreational Vehicle Fellowship, or RVF as it is affectionately known by its members, is one of the 74 fellowships of Rotary in which the members have a common bond ... in our case a love for camping and rallies in various scenic locations in North America.  Our membership includes Americans, Canadians, Brits and Australians ... and hopefully you!

If you are a Rotarian and have a love for camping, be it in a pop-up tent trailer or a Class A motorhome, join our fun group.  Even if you cannot make it to Toronto, there are a number of other events and Rallies each year that may fit your schedule.

To check out past rallies, our newsletter, and for a membership application, go to our website:
