Sapphire Paul Harris Fellow recipient Past President Pat Quigley is congratlated by Districy Governor Elect Marie Dorrington and President David.

“BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU DO” “DO WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN” was the Rotary International Theme in 1993/94.  This could not have been more appropriate

 for Pat Quigley’s Presidential year.

As a Charter Member, Pat has completed over 45 years as a member of this Cub, his classification photographer.  He has served as Treasurer, Bulletin Editor and as Director of all Major Committees.

With his late wife Doris, Pat hosted several Youth exchange students and took them travelling around Australia while they were here, and kept track of them afterwards.

Pat was made a Paul Harris fellow in 1993.

His family has been part of our Rotary family and we have watched his third generation grow during this time.

A long lasting achievement has been Pat's photographic expertise which he is always willing to share and has provided the wonderful record that enhances the archives of this Club.

Our Club is proud to recognise PP Pat Quigley as a Paul Harris Fellow, Sapphire Pin.
