1956-1957

President Walter Hunsaker

During Walter Hunsaker’s term of office, 1956-57, several projects were started which lapped over into other president’s terms.  However, the Rotary Club had been meeting at the Last Frontier for many years and suddenly found the hotel sold and under the process of remodeling.  So the club was forced to move to the Royal Nevada, where they remained for a portion of the year.  When the Royal Nevada began remodeling, another move was forced.  This was the end of an era for Las Vegas, for the two original and pioneer hotels, El Rancho and the Last Frontier, were out of business and a whole new regime took over.  In this 1956-57 term, Tommy Underhill and Hunsaker started a classification survey looking toward the formation of a new club in North Las Vegas, which came about later.
