On Wednesday September 11th the Club held its 6th annual charity golf tournament.  For the second year the charity selected was the Boys & Girls Clubs of Great Halifax.  
 
The tournament was held at the beautiful Chester Golf Club and seventy golfers enjoyed the day as the forecasted rain held off and the temperatures were comfortable.  The winners of the tournament were the George Fisher foursome with a fantastic score of 56!

This year approximately $7300 was raise in support of the B&G Clubs’ programs, to help children in need in our community.
 
Our club has been an active long-term supporter of the B&G Clubs and particularly the Breakfast Program.  Children, in our community, often go to school hungry and the purpose of the Breakfast Program is to ensure students receive a healthy breakfast to start off their school day.  It is fact that if a child receives a well-nourished breakfast they perform better in school. This Program is a free service which is offered at local community schools. The B&G Clubs serve over 60,000 breakfasts and snacks to children every year.
 
A special ceremony was also held during the dinner following the tournament.  Gordon McComb, who has been a supporter of the Rotary Club of Dartmouth by lending his auctioneer talents year after year to our annual Spring Classic fundraiser, was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship.  The Paul Harris Fellowship Award is one of the highest honours Rotary can bestow upon a person. Recipients are Rotarians and community professionals, in recognition of their outstanding contributions, exemplifying the highest ideal in Rotary in placing “SERVICE ABOVE SELF.”
