Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations match in February, while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
"Frank Pettit was only the second President in the Branch from a junior club and the significance of his legacy is the development of the Connacht Youth (Age Grade) Programme. He was an outstanding person and I am delighted to be present to make these presentations."
The guest speaker was Old Belvedere, Ireland and Lions great, Ollie Campbell, who spoke of the history of Creggs and the personalities that have kept it going.
He paid tribute to Ger Dowd and Sean Brandon for their coaching and preparations of the club squads over the seasons and wished the current club captain, Kevin Brandon, the very best while presenting him with a unique players' tour pin from this year's Lions tour to South Africa.
Former and current players, sponsors and friends of the Roscommon club gave superb support to the dinner.
