Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Dartmouth were out in force on Saturday June 12th, to clean up Windmill Road in Dartmouth. 

For over the past 10 years the Club has been picking up litter under the Adopt-A-Highway Program and has seen a marked difference in the amount of litter along Windmill.

 

Just one more example of Rotarians’ “Service Above Self” motto

At our Rotary Zoom meeting on Monday February 1st our presenters were Elsie Morden, founder & CEO of the “No Time for That” tour and Sarah Steward, a third-year student from Dalhousie University studying International Development and History.
 
No Time for That (NTFT) is a registered Canadian charity that works with performers and motivational speakers to develop and deliver powerful presentations mainly to school-age children and youth about bullying prevention, mental health awareness, and youth empowerment.
The Paul Harris Fellowship Award is one of the highest honours Rotary can bestow upon a person. This award is in recognition of their outstanding contributions, exemplifying the highest ideal of Rotary in placing “SERVICE ABOVE SELF”.
 
In November 2020 The Rotary Club of Dartmouth presented Dr. Robert Strang and Tim Nobes with the coveted “Paul Harris Fellowship Award” in recognition of their long-standing contributions to our community and to Nova Scotia as a whole.
 
Congratulations to both of these worthy individuals. Here is a little bit about them:.
 
President Lorraine Lewis presents award to Dr. Robert Strang.

Dr. Robert Strang is a Canadian physician and the Chief Medical Officer of Nova Scotia.
 
From 1997 to 1999, Dr. Strang was an Associate Medical Officer of Health of BC.  In 1999, he relocated to Halifax, where he became the Medical Officer of Health of Nova Scotia Health Authority. He held the position until 2007.
 
In 2007, Dr. Strang was appointed Chief Public Health Official which was renamed to the Chief Medical Officer of Health by the province in late 2016. 
 
Since 15 March 2020, he has provided daily updates on the COVID-19 pandemic in Nova Scotia. Strang became Nova Scotia's public health lead communicator on matters related to the COVID-19 pandemic in Nova Scotia. In daily press conferences, he provides updates on the COVID-19 pandemic and the public health effort to respond to it.
