John’s presidential year saw an enthusiastic Major Activity Committee running a Lyell McEwin Hospital Fete raising funds to purchase a foetal monitor, and the second Elizabeth Fayre, a Rotary venture which had begun the previous year. John’s connections saw a closer relationship develop with the Apex club and the Elizabeth Chamber of Commerce who actively participated in the event.

The club hosted an excellent student from the Netherlands and sent a student from Elizabeth to New York State USA where she had a very successful year.

John’s musical ability supported Rotary Showtime and he was heavily involved in the community with Para Hills Brass Band.

John was a mentor to new members and is remembered for his gentle, courteous manner.
