Mr Rotary!



PDG Jack Peters;

At the young age of 82 and after 40 years of service (37 with perfect attendance), Jack announced to the club that he would be resigning from active duty.

Jack has taken on many tasks in the past 40 years, things such as assisting with the formation of new local clubs, Club Service Director for this club, Vocational Service Director, President Elect, Club President, served on several club committees, and finally crowned it all with District Governor. But it didn’t end there, he attended the international convention in Seoul Korea, was invited to visit the Universal Eyesight Operations in India for 24 days, attended many zone training meetings and went to the Rotary International assembly Meeting and swearing in ceremony in Dallas Texas.

These are just among some of what Jack has done, the list is endless and exhausting, I could go on for pages, but the thing that impresses me the most is that this man who has given so much for community and world improvement credits his companion and life partner Betty for remaining by his side through it all.

In June of 2015 at the Rotary District conference in Kelowna BC, he received the coveted “RIPVP Harold R Henderson Award” in recognition of his service to District 5060 over many years and many types of service.

Mr. Jack Peters is a true gentleman, a giving man who clearly has a large capacity for service above self. At the November Annual General Meeting of the Vernon Rotary Club, Jack was awarded a life time membership followed by a standing ovation by his peers who clearly have the world of respect for the man.

Well done Mr. Rotary, if the world had a fraction of your moxie, it would be a much better place. It is our sincere hope to see you “almost” as much as usual.
