Dartmouth Rotary Club's first scholastic Chess Tournament

Chess players from the region were invited to the Dartmouth Rotary Club’s first scholastic chess tournament held on Saturday September 11th, at the Dartmouth Middle School.
The players participated in four rounds of chess, the first play started at 10:00. The SouthEast New England Chess Association (SENECA), provided the young players with the chessboards and pieces. Some players brought their own chess clocks.
“This was a fun program, our first, the players had fun and they learned a little bit about Rotary and service to the community” said Terri Hamm, chairperson and Rotary member.

There are many reasons to join the Dartmouth Rotary Club:


An original goal of Rotary was to allow club members to meet periodically and enlarge their circle of business and professional acquaintances. As members of the oldest service club in the world, Rotarians represent a cross-section of their community's business owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals – people who make decisions and influence policy.

Rotary began as an idea more than 100 years ago. Today, Rotary flourishes worldwide with 1.2 million members in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.
