Rotarians from the Dartmouth club were again helping to keep our community clean and beautiful.
Early Saturday morning, June 4th, about a dozen Rotarians took part in their bi-annual street cleanup of Windmill Road in Dartmouth.  Over a couple of hours, they gathered about 50 bags of litter, boards, tires and auto parts. The number one item remains coffee cups, but this time there were lots of COVID masks in the mix. Event chair Mike Monaghan put all the pieces in place with HRM to make sure things went smoothly.
In the meantime, across the Harbour at Conrose Park, near Jubilee and Connaught, Rotarian Terry Carter and his brother Bruce, who is with Tree Canada, were beginning to lay out a pattern to begin planting 65 hardwood trees on the Northern side of the park. With the aid of special guest planter Katherine Lewis and another half dozen street cleaner/tree planter volunteers, holes were dug, rocks moved and trees planted. If you are in the park for a game of tennis, baseball or just for a walk, look out for several rows of future shade trees, courtesy of the Rotary Club of Dartmouth.
This is another example of our motto of “Service Above Self”.
