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, following an invitation to be a guest speaker at RC Albury West. 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 a range of Rotary Clubs: Albury West, Drummoyne (2), Toorak, Canberra City, Denman, Castle Hill (2), Yass and Aurora-Gungahlin.
Pete has been the President of RC of Castle Hill and RC of Yass. Pete is a Paul Harris Fellow (Sapphire x 2) having been recognized for his services by RC of Castle Hill, RC of Yass and personal contributions.
Pete participated in a RAWCS Project in Nepal in 2002. This was an amazing experience and he would like to do something similar in the future.
Pete and his wife Judy (a previous Assistant Governor in District 9710 and current District Director) have two daughters and two grandsons.
Over the years we have hosted Youth Exchange Students from countries such as: Finland, Germany, Belgium, Brazil (3), USA (2), Sweden, Denmark (2) and Taiwan. In the main, this has been a most gratifying experience.
