Maitland Electorate Rotarians


Saluting Andrew Percival, Douglas Tilse and Richard Fry who, between them, have almost 160 years experience as Rotarians.

I salute Andrew Percival, Douglas Tilse and Richard Fry, three of my constituents who, between them, have almost a 160 years experience as Rotarians.

All of them have served in the Maitland Rotary Club's executive and all of them have contributed to the club and the community over the years. Mr Percival, inducted in 1959, is noted as a quiet but effective achiever and a true stalwart of the club. Mr Tilse, inducted in 1963, is described as an inspiration to younger members. Mr Fry, inducted in 1966, served as the club's president from 1983 to 1984 and maintains an active profile as a senior member.

As a former Rotarian, I applaud those three men for their dedication and commitment to our community. We are all richer for their endeavours.

Bravo to those gentlemen.
