Rotarians Clean Up the Street
On Saturday April29th a dedicated group of Club members once again cleaned up Wyse Road in Dartmouth.  This bi-annual cleanup is now in it's seventh year.
 A record amount of garbage was collected which is always disappointing "come on people!!!"
A special thanks goes out to the volunteers from Leon's Furniture who worked along side of Rotarians.

Beer, Beer & more Beer
Who knew that there was more to beer than a burp? Rotarian Ken McCormick gave a very good presentation on his industry: its past, present and future. How beer lovers are now matching beers to their favorite foods. The samples were enjoyed by all.
Christmas Dinners Delivered
Again this year the Rotary Clubs of Dartmouth and Dartmouth East collaborated to deliver Christmas Dinners to individuals & families in need. Thanks to "Stagger's Pub and Grub" for once again helping to make this event a success.

DG Elva Heyge Addresses Club
On November 7th Elva Heyge our District Governor (DG) addressed our Club.  She opened with comments about what inspired her to commit her time to Rotary. It was an encounter with a Youth Exchange Student, before and after a youth exchange to Brazil that led her to go there on a Friendship Exchange.  While there she learned of a potential humanitarian project but it was too large to fund solely by her Club.  However, not to be daunted, she applied for and was successful in obtaining Rotary Foundation funding which made the project a reality.  The end result provided a tangible benefit to more than 400 children & their families in Brazil. For these reasons, our DG is a strong proponent of Youth Exchange, Friendship Exchange and the Rotary Foundation. DG Elva Heyge seen above with President Marg Chisholm.
