The club was involved with CFQC's  Louis Riel Day celebration throughout the 1970's and 80's; the day long celebration featured a multi stage relay race  in which teams had to compete in running , horseback riding and canoe paddling disciplines. Portable stages, showcasing local talent, provided free entertainment for the large crowds that attended the event.

Two refreshment tents were operated as a fundraiser by Rotarians and their wives on the river bank in KiwanisPark, with one tent being just north of the Bessborough, and the second close to the Vimy Memorial bandstand. Club members worked in shifts, either setting up the tents and grills, cooking hamburgers and hot dogs plus serving cold drinks, or as part of the 'cleanup - takedown' crew.

The profits generated were not large ($1,500-$2,000) relative to the 'man hours' expended, however, the fellowship and camaraderie that club members experienced, made the endeavour well worth the effort.
