Dave Gallaher to Serve as President of Rotary Club of Tucson
On July 1, 2013, Dave Gallaher, Managing Member and Designated Broker for Tucson Industrial Realty LLC assumed the role of the 93rd President of the Rotary Club of Tucson (RCOT). RCOT is the 2nd largest Rotary club in Arizona and the 77th largest club in the United States. Rotary International is the largest service club in the world with over 1.2 million members and with clubs in over 180 countries.
Dave has been a member of the Rotary Club of Tucson for 22 years and has served on the Board of Directors as well as in the role of Sergeant of Arms.
Rotary International has been dedicated to the eradication of polio around the globe since 1985 and has raised over $1 billion to work towards this goal. In the past twelve months, only 223 cases of polio have been reported in the countries of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria.
Locally, the RCOT is involved in numerous community based charities and service projects, foremost being their goal of improving literacy among students in primary grades for all Pima County schools. RCOT is in its 8th year of contributing funding to Reading Seed, a part of Literacy Connects. The classic annual fundraising event for the club is the Tucson Classics Car Show, to be held October 19, 2013. The proceeds from this year’s event will benefit charities including Youth On Their Own, Reading Seed, and St. Joseph’s Neo Natal Care Unit.
According to Dave, “the best thing about Rotary in general is being part of a world-wide effort to help our communities and friends in various countries by performing service projects that include peace resolution, sanitation, and education.” Rotary’s motto, “Service above Self” and its ‘Four Way Test of Rotary’ play a significant role in how Tucson Industrial Realty LLC provides services to its clients.
Dave is proud of his involvement with Rotary and looks forward to an exciting year as the 93rdPresident of the Tucson Rotary Club.
