1954-1955President George Bowman
George Bowman was president of the club in 1954-55 and instituted a very successful “Vocational Service Table” program under which each week, several Rotarians hosted a guest employer, employee, competitor or customer. The 4 Way Test was also introduced into the school system, and road signs calling attention to the Rotary meeting were established on all roads leading into Las Vegas.
As 1955 was the Golden Anniversary of Rotary International, a gala dinner party was held in Las Vegas with many districts officers present. The club also sponsored an inter-city visit to Tonopah, with 15 members and their wives attending. Other similar visits were made to Reno, Yerington, Sparks, Fallon, Carson City and Minden. In addition, the club started an improvement project for Hyde Park with an initial donation of $1700.
