Past District Governor Stella Roy is a member of the Rotary Club of Halifax Harbourside, in Nova Scotia.
Since serving as District Governor in 2014-15, Stella has remained very active in Rotary at the district, Zone and internationally having participated in immunization days in Africa. As our District Foundation Chair she has led a very effective group from all around our district. She has also served as the Rotary  Zone 24 East Polio Plus Coordinator.
The Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service recognizes individual Rotarians who have demonstrated outstanding service to The Rotary Foundation. Each year, Districts may select only one Rotarian to honour for their commitment, enthusiasm, and passion for the ideals of Rotary.
At the District Conference in St. John's DG Don Sword presented to PDG Stella Roy, on behalf of the Trustees of The Rotary Foundation, the Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service. 
Congratulations Stella!
When Stella was District Governor the Rotary theme was “Light up Rotary” and can anyone imagine a more appropriate theme for someone?
Our District has an award for a Past District Governor who provided great service to the District during his or her year as District Governor and who continues to contribute in an outstanding way to the work being carried out by District 7820.
This award is based on nomination and there should be no surprise that Stella's name was submitted. 
DG Don had the great pleasure at the 2018 District Conference in St. John's to present the HEART OF THE DISTRICT AWARD to Stella Roy!
Congratulations Stella!
