Rotary member Dr. David Peer was recognized by the Hinesville Rotary Club as their new president for the 2022–23 year on Tuesday, June 28, in a ceremony held at the LaQuinta Inn & Suites.
“I want our club to recognize all of the amazing things that Rotary has done throughout the world in the coming year, while shifting our focus to a more local approach to help those right here in our community,” Peer said.
Peer has been a member of the Rotary Club of Hinesville for 12 years. He is the owner of the Liberty County Clinic of Chiropractic with his wife, Nancy.
Other officers include Dr. Karen Bell, Immediate Past President; Terry Cook, President Elect; Michelle Ricketson, Secretary; and Jeff Ricketson, Secretary. Numerous other Rotarians were selected as chairs for various committees.
Rotary’s 2022–23 theme, “Imagine Rotary,” was chosen by Rotary International President-elect Jennifer Jones, who is also the first female president: “Imagine, a world that deserves our best, where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference.” The theme graphic was designed by an Australian Indigenous artist to link with the Melbourne Convention in 2023.
Rotary members improve lives and bring positive, lasting change to communities around the world by promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water and sanitation, supporting education, saving mothers and children, and growing local economies. Rotary’s top priority is the global eradication of polio. Rotary launched its polio immunization program, PolioPlus, in 1985, and in 1988 became a leading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
