Past Presidents

The NW Rotary Past Presidents Group is the brainchild of Past President (PP) George Peet, who came up with the idea at the end of his Club presidency in 1979. George had two ideas in mind:
  • Carry on the camaraderie of the Rotary Club Board meetings; and
  • Bring together as an ad hoc group the Past Presidents, who with their Rotary experience could possibly offer their services to the Club executive if required.

Some think of us as a Committee, which we are not. Committees are appointed; we are not. We are a group of Rotarians who continue to find ways to serve the club.  We run the weekly Hong Kong Auction which is a means of raising some seed money for our projects.

We organize the annual Past President's Roast/Toast for Rotarians and their significant others.   This event honors the work of the outgoing President.   For a number of years we made up and delivered Christmas hampers for distribution to the families at Rotary Manor.  On occasion we have taken on projects at the request of the Club executive.
