District Governor T. Dale Roberts

Dale Roberts is probably best known as the husband of Past District Governor Maureen (Mo) Fritz-Roberts.

Many people are surprised to learn that Dale was actually a Rotarian before Mo joined Rotary.  Dale was invited to join the Rotary Club of Fairview, Alberta in January 1977.  He later joined the Rotary Club of Comox in 1992 and is a charter member of the Rotary Club of Comox Valley.

Dale and Mo have been partners in business and service for almost as long as they have been married.

Mo is currently the manager of their office, which specializes in estate planning and real estate transfers.  They previously worked together in insurance, income tax and newspapers.  When Dale was president of the Comox Rotary Club, Mo was president of another service club at the same time, and the two clubs partnered on a park project.

It is partnerships that make Rotary effective in Dale’s opinion. Rotarians partner with their communities to make them better places to lie.  Rotarians partner with other Rotarians to deliver essential services throughout the world.  Rotarians have partnered with NGOs to eradicate disease, create peace and provide clean water.

Terry (Dale) Roberts acquired the nickname “Batman” during his year as chief of staff to District Governor Mo.  Dale is sometimes also known as TD.  That’s a lot of names. Dale doesn’t really care what you call him.  He does care about Rotary and especially the Rotary Foundation.

Dale and Mo are major donors to the Rotary Foundation, members of the Paul Harris Society, members of the Polio Plus Society and they have decided to provide for the Rotary Foundation in their will to the same extent as one of their children. Dale and Mo live in the Comox Valley in close proximity to all five of their grandchildren.
