The Take Action Society
The Take Action Society was the first organization to receive a Paul Harris Fellowship from The Dartmouth Rotary Club. The Society was founded in 2009 and strives to create a stronger, healthier community and believes that through children, they can encourage a sense of belonging and pride that will make a difference today and in the future. The group has collected food to donate to the local food bank and raised funds to support Bryony House and Christmas Daddies. Society members have also participated in many community events including walk Against Violence, Harbourview Elementary School’s Christmas Concerts and Talent Shows, Pumpkin carving, Easter Egg hunts, seed planting and community yard sales.

The Society and the Dartmouth Rotary Club collaborated to design and construct a community garden and outdoor classroom behind Harbourview School. To learn more about this project visit: http://www.dartmouthrotary.ca/clubp_takeactionsociety.php
