Rick Brassard is proud to be the president of the Rotary Club of Englehart. The Rotary Club of Englehart is an integral part of the Englehart community, hosting a variety of events and supporting local causes.
According to some club members, one of the club’s best projects is their Christmas hamper project. The club has been involved in providing Christmas hampers to those in the community who are less fortunate. This is a perennial undertaking by the club its success is attributable to the dedication and hard work of Rotarians as well as strong support from the community.

This club is part of the social fabric of the Englehart community. Club members organize a variety of events, fundraisers and activities for citizens of all ages. Here are just a few of their events over the past year. In December, club members visited a seniors’ home with Santa and provided fellowship, fun and gifts. Also in December, they hosted the “Rotary Christmas Concert” which showcases the talents of local groups and individuals while ushering in the holiday season. In November, they hosted the “Rotary Trade Show” as part of the “Candyland - Unveiling of Christmas”. Other activities they organized over those 2 days were the Annual Gingerbread House Contest and the “Kids Christmas Corner” where children had the opportunity to shop for their loved ones while their parents enjoyed a short period of time on their own to do their own shopping. In June, club members sold roses and carnations as part of “Rotary Rose Day”. And in April they held their annual BBQ Roast Beef Dinner and Auction. In March they hosted a St. Patrick’s Day event as well as the Rotary Breakfast at the Englehart Winter Carnival. And to start the year, they organized a community New Year’s Eve Party! Wow – this club never rests!
