Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dartmouth

Club News
On Monday January 10th the Rotary Club of Dartmouth was please to receive a presentation, via Zoom, from Linda Wilson who is the Executive Director at Shelter Nova Scotia
 
Since 1984 Linda has been working with people living on the margins of society in Halifax Nova Scotia. Even as a child she had an interest in why some people have more belongings and opportunities, and some people do not.
 
Linda completed a Bachelor of Arts in Community Studies at what is now known as Cape Breton University in Sydney Nova Scotia. It was there where she began her academic study of the social implications of housing and home life. From there she attended Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario and graduated with a Diploma in Community Planning. After returning to Nova Scotia, she worked for five years as a Planning Technician with the City of Halifax Planning Department.
 
Shelter Nova Scotia provides a safe place to stay for those in need and seeks to grow an effective continuum of services to support people while they transition from crisis, back into the community.

The Metro Turning Point offers shelter services to help with housing and health needs for men, trans individuals, and gender nonconforming individuals who are experiencing homelessness. This service is provided by Shelter Nova Scotia and is eligible to individuals ages 16 years and older who are experiencing homelessness and who are without the funds required to obtain housing elsewhere.
 
On Sunday November 21st the Rotary Club of Dartmouth were at the Metro Turning Point to provide a meal for the people currently residing at the shelter.  Pictured here, from left to right, are Rotarians Don Penwell, Bob Johnson, Ken McCormick and Reid Harrison.   Another example of living our motto of “Service Above Self”

On the road again
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway

Dartmouth Rotarians were at it again; engaging in their bi-annual cleanup of Windmill Road.
Many hands make light work and in just over an hour the 17 volunteers had cleaned the road between Akerley Blvd and Victoria Road.  It was a grand day for weather, community service and the fellowship associated with being a Rotarian.

The Rotary Club of Dartmouth’s 8th annual charity golf tournament was held on Wednesday September 15th and our club was pleased with both the turnout and funds raised. The 18-hole scramble had 44 golfers participate this year and over $4200 was raised for Rotary’s good work in our community and beyond.
 
The 1st place team was led by Peter Dunbrack with a score of 61 (9 under par), the 2nd place team was led by Rotarian Dana Atwell with a score of 62 (8 under par) and the 3rd place team was led by Rotarian Don Penwell with a score of 63 (7 under par).
 
Holes were sponsored by O'Regan Automotive Group, RHAD Architects, Tartan Interiors, MacLeod Lorway, Markland and Associates and Rotarian Doug Livingstone. A special thanks to the Oak Island Resort for their kind donation of a 2-night stay which was raffled off and won by Doug Livingstone.  A shout goes out to Sobeys Mil Cove, Superstore Bedford and Tim Hortons Chester for supplying eats and drinks for the golfers
 
We would also like to recognize and thank Rotarian Don Chisholm and his wife Marg for again organising the tournament and hosting the beer and burger social after the event.  And finally, thanks to all the golfers who once again came out to support the good work of Rotary both in our community and internationally.

Our beautiful coast is part of who we are as Nova Scotians.  It binds us together, no matter where we live. Sadly, too much trash is choking our environment.  More than eight million metric tons of plastic enter the ocean annually. And while no silver bullet exists, On Saturday September 18th, The Rotary Club of Dartmouth along with thousands of passionate volunteers worldwide joined forces to keep the beaches, and ocean free of trash on World Cleanup Day.

Our dedicated bunch of Rotarians picked up trash along the beach just north of Jeddore Cape.  It was a great day for a little fresh air, some exercise and Rotary fellowship while helping to keep our coastline clean.
