Dickson, past district governor, Mr. Harold Jones, the President of the Canberra Club, Mr. W. Turner, and the President of the Queanbeyan Club, Mr. D. Campbell, in the Queanbeyan Park.
Later a dinner was held at the Queanbeyan Showground, at which Dr. Dickson presented the charter in an impressive ceremony. In his presentation speech, Dr. Dickson told members of the Club that they had been chosen because they were leaders in business in their district. The formation of the new Rotary Club proved their leadership.
