A Rotary Year in Review: Dartmouth Rotary Club 2015-16


President Jim Kirby


Club President Jim Kirby's speech at the 2016 Spring Classic:

Welcome to the Dartmouth Rotary Club's Spring Classic Dinner & Draw. I am Jim Kirby, club president. On behalf of the club thank you for coming tonight, we're very pleased you could join us once more.

It is thru your participation that we have been able to disburse over $65,000 in the last year to a variety of community projects such as helping sponsor 3 Syrian refugee families, providing funds for renovations at a Boys and Girls Club and helping Hospice Halifax with much needed seed funds to start their goal of constructing the first hospice for end of life care in Halifax.

I can tell you that Rotary and others are this close to eradicating polio from our planet – under 20 new cases in endemic countries in the first 5 months of 2016. There used to be 350,000 new cases annually.

Let’s have a hand for our co-chairs Marg Chisholm and Lorraine Lewis and their committee for all the hard work they did to make tonight possible.

I leave you with the following message:
The service you do for others is the rent you pay for your room on earth – that’s a quote from Muhammed Ali. Thanks for doing this tonight.

Please have a fun night and spend lots of money!”
