  • Adopt-a-Highway,
  • Rotary Music Festival,
  • MS Walk,
  • Meals on Wheels,
  • Family Place Festival of Trees (decorate & donate a tree),
  • Salvation Army Christmas Project (Adopt-a-Family),
  • Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign,
  • Rotary Choir, performances at the Weyburn & District Communithon and the Quota Carol Festival, Rotary Youth Exchange and

The club supports many local organisations monetarily (e.g. Weyburn Music Festival, Weyburn Minor Hockey, Academic scholarships, SE Regional College Bursary, Weyburn Hospital Foundation, Caravan Society, Weyburn Group Home Society, Weyburn Legion, etc.). Provincially, the club supports STARS Air Ambulance.
During the meeting that took place at the Weyburn Legion hall, two Paul Harris +2 pins were presented to Bob and Brenda King.
