The Rotary Club of Dartmouth held its Paul Harris Fellowship Awards Dinner on April 30, 2018.  The Fellowship is the Rotary's most prestigious honour and is awarded in appreciation for service that exemplifies the humanitarian and educational objectives of the Rotary Foundation.  This year's recipients were Cathy Deagle-Gammon and Heather Hughes-Leck.
Cathy Deagle-Gammon is being recognized for her efforts over the last twenty one years as Executive Director for the Dartmouth Adult Services Center.  The mission of the DASC, in association with its community, is to provide opportunities for adults with intellectual disabilities and support them in realizing their individual potential and become active members of the community.

Heather Hughes-Leck is a teacher facilitator for the Dartmouth High School Interact Human Rights Club and the Eco Club. For the past five years she has organized an annual week-long trip to the Dominican Republic. The students are immersed in the experience of living in a rural town far from the resorts. They work on Humanitarian Projects to help the people of the Bateyes (a settlement around a sugar mill) who live and work in the sugar cane fields. They also work along side them, in the fields. as an example of life as a local.
