In 1988, Pete was inducted into the Rotary Club of Albury West. At the time he was a serving member of the Australian Army. Pete was attracted to Rotary through some mutual acquaintances and because he had been invited to RC of Albury West as a guest speaker. Joining Rotary seemed like a natural progression.
His Army career took him to a variety of locations, at each of which he took the opportunity to join the local Rotary Club (Drummoyne, NSW, Toorak, Vic, Canberra City, ACT, Drummoyne (again), Castle Hill, NSW, Denman, NSW, Castle Hill (again) and then on to Yass, NSW.

Pete is a Paul Harris Fellow (Sapphire) having been recognized for his services by Castle Hill and Yass. Pete participated in a RAWCS Project in Nepal in 2002.
