Dolly Hilton joined the Rotary Club of Prince George – Nechako in July 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. 

She first joined the club from an invitation from her friend Leona Anderson, a long-time member of the club and the Board.

Dolly initially joined for networking but soon realized it had so much more to offer than a small community-minded charity once she found the true meaning of being a Rotarian. As is her habit, once she became a Rotarian she joined the Board, eventually becoming President in 2015-16. That year under Dolly’s leadership, she led the club to one of the district’s most esteemed honours, being named the club-of-the-year.

She has stayed on the Board in different capacities since and likes to be part of the decision-making team of the club.
She was asked to join the District Foundation Committee about five years ago and presently holds the position of Paul Harris Society Co-ordinator. She believes strongly in supporting the charities she is passionate about. The Rotary Foundation is top of the list as she is a Sustaining Member of the Paul Harris Society.
Dolly’s appointment as Assistant District Governor for Prince George North allows her the opportunity to support the clubs in this area and help out current District Governor Lorne Calder and those who follow in the next three years.

Now that she is retired, traveling, fishing, photography, painting, and cooking are hobbies that take up her spare time. However, her family, which includes two sons and their respective spouses and her grandson is always her first priority in life.
