After the family relocated from Sydney in 1990 Graeme was invited to join the Rotary Club of Griffith, District 9700. For a number of years he and his partner Lyn worked on the District Rotary Youth Exchange Program. The family hosted a number of students and their children participated in exchanges during that time. Graeme & Lyn escorted students to the USA and NZ and met with other District  committees. Graeme was President of the Rotary Club of Griffith in its 50th Anniversary year. In 1995-6 he edited the District Governor’s Newsletter and was on the District Conference Committee.

The family moved to the Central Coast in 1999 and Graeme joined the Rotary Club of Kincumber, District 9680. He was President in 2003-4. Graeme has held most Board positions at his clubs.
