President Message

Dear Fellow Rotarians,


As the 2014-2015 President,  I would like to welcome you to the Rotary Club Rochester  New Hampshire Website. 


Our club members represent the highest ethical standards in business and the community and come from a variety of classifications providing a strong fellowship of high quality individuals who choose to lead their lives by the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self”. This group has accomplished incredible things through community service work, fund raising, and support for local projects that help make Rochester a better place to live and work. We enjoy  camaraderie that enriches our lives and professions at weekly lunch meetings.


If you want to experience the personal gratification that comes from helping others and living a life of significance, please visit one of our weekly meetings or contact me directly for more information on our membership process.  As the Club President in 2014-2015, I have the honor of continuing a long legacy of servant leadership and look forward to carrying out our membership and service-based strategic plan, with the leadership and support of our members and Board of directors.


I am very committed to getting others involved in the Club so that “many hands make light work”. We have a wealth of knowledge and skills in our Club and the Club is a great place for others to share their skills and enjoy the special camaraderie that exists between the members.  This year’s theme says it all:  “Light Up Rotary” is not just our theme for this year-it is a call for each of us to take action and make Rotary stronger.


Thank you to all our current members and I hope to see new members join our Club in the current year.


Should you wish to inquire about joining our club, you may do so by leaving a message through this website.


Derek J Peters

President 2014-2015
