In recognition of the Club’s 100th anniversary on April 1, 2020,  the City of Welland and the Rotary Club jointly announced the 100th Anniversary Legacy Project. 
Welland Rotary will contribute $100,000 to this community Legacy Project initiative. This notable recreation area, to be named ‘Rotary Club of Welland Park’, is located south of Lincoln Street on the west side of the Welland Recreational Waterway. 
The Rotary Club of Welland presented its second installment of its 100th Legacy Project commitment, in the amount of  $20,000, to Welland City Council on Tuesday February 15, 2022. President Vic Kerschl updated Council on the progress of the park development  including the arch entrance sign which is waiting for installation. It is hoped that this can occur close to our 102nd anniversary on April 1, 2022. “ We hope the Archway Sign can be installed this spring, to coincide with our 102nd anniversary in April. The Rotary Club of Welland is committed to working with the City of Welland on this and other projects as it has done for over 100 years “
