Club Projects: Dartmouth Rotary Renovates Margaret’s House

On April 9, 2011 members of the Rotary Club of Dartmouth constructed a new front entrance ramp and fire escape for Margaret’s House in downtown Dartmouth.

Named after the late Margaret Savage, Margaret’s House is located at the corner of Wentworth and Ochterloney. At first glance, you wouldn't know what it is, but this picturesque house has been doing amazing work in the community for over 20 years. At Margaret’s House a hot, nutritious evening meal is served to those in need from Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Lunch is served seven days a week.

After many years of continual use, the front entrance and fire escape were in dire need of replacement. That’s when the Rotary Club of Dartmouth swung into action. First the old structures had to be demolished and then construction of new structures could take place. Many hands made light work and the job was completed in just over a day but will serve the needs of the community for years to come.
