Welcome to our Valley; unique within the vast area of District 7820 

What's Happening: Our Stories

Congratulations to Elva Heyge. Elva received the Heart of the District Award at our District 7820's Virtual Annual General Meeting held Friday May 29, 2020. It is awarded to a past District Governor who provided service to the District during their term as District Governor and who continues to contribute in an outstanding way to the work being carried out by the District 7820.
Because of the virtual meeting, it was not possible to get a formal photo of the presentation. This was a screen shot taken moments after the announcement was made. We look forward to "post COVID" when we can meet again in person to congratulate you. Until then, know that we, the Rotary Club of Kentville, are proud of you Elva. So well deserved!
Rotary Fellowships consist of members who share a common interest in recreational activities, sports, hobbies or professions. These groups help expand skills, foster vocational development, and enhance the Rotary experience by exploring interests while developing connections around the world.
Rotary Fellowships
  • Help participants make lasting friendships outside their own club, district or country
  • Advance Rotary‚Äôs public image and identity
  • Serve as an incentive for joining Rotary and for maintaining active membership
Rotary Fellowships
  • Function independently of Rotary International by establishing their own rules, dues requirements, and administrative structure
  • Are open to Rotarians, their family members, as well as participants and alumni of all Rotary and Foundation programs
COVID-19 has presented many challenges. We saw an abrupt end to our in-person meetings in mid-March as the Province of Nova Scotia declared a state of emergency and restricted gatherings of more than five people and asked citizens to "Stay the Blazes Home" except when necessary to go out.
Rotarians are by nature people of action. While many of our projects and social gatherings were postponed or cancelled, we did not sit idly by. By mid-April, our club held its first weekly virtual meeting. The Board and club committees also moved to virtual meetings and conference calls. We quickly pivoted to assisting with the pandemic. Our first response was a donation to our local food banks. Our biggest project was teaming up with the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation (VRHF) to help fund, produce and distribute non-medical masks. Together with the VRHF and community volunteers, we are proud to have created close to 10,000 masks, most of which have been donated to fill needs within the community. Our thanks to Rod McMahon, Ellen Crowley and Heather Lohr for their leadership on this project.
