On July 12, 2024, during the Rotary Halifax Harbour Handover Breakfast, a significant event marked the transition into the new Rotary year that began on July 1. Immediate past president Godfred Chongatera awarded the prestigious True Rotarian Award to immediate past secretary Thomas Paul. This esteemed recognition is bestowed at the discretion of the president and celebrates the exemplary service and dedication of a distinguished Rotarian.
A couple of years ago, under the leadership of our current District Governor, Jillian Gibson, Rotary Halifax Harbour became a PeaceBuilder Club. This designation marked a significant milestone in our club's dedication to fostering peace and goodwill within our community and beyond. Immediate past president Godfred Chongatera took the opportunity to award this year's PeaceBuilder Award to a person who embodies these values.
Last year, Rotary Halifax Harbour took a significant step forward by welcoming our first corporate member, Rogers Communications. This move was part of our strategic plan to expand our reach and amplify our impact within the community by leveraging the resources and expertise of prominent organizations. Today, we are thrilled to announce the addition of our second corporate member, The Westin Nova Scotian.
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
It is a unique privilege to have been given the opportunity to serve as your president for 2023-2024. It has been a rewarding and interesting experience. There were a lot of successes but also a few challenges, as this is a human society. Many wonderful people in this club have great energy and help to create a better life for those in need in our local community and around the world. Over the years, I have served on and been involved with many community groups, but nowhere have I met people committed to community service than the members of this club.
We are thrilled to announce that our very own Chris Hornberger has been selected as the District Governor for the Rotary year 2026-2027. This prestigious selection comes after an extensive and rigorous process by the District Nominating Committee. Chris, a member of the Rotary Club of Halifax Harbour since 2015, exemplifies the vision of Rotary in District 7815: “To inspire diversity, collaboration, friendship, and service.”

We recognize the peace and friendship treaties signed between the British Crown and the Mi'kmaq from 1760 to 1769.
