Full year ahead for Peter Vossen

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Pa­per, Your Place - STAFF RE­PORTERS

Peter Vossen has taken over as pres­i­dent of Ro­tary Mata­mata and is look­ing for­ward to his year in the role.

Ad­dress­ing Ro­tar­i­ans at the Changeover cer­e­mony last week, he asked that they build on their proud his­tory of ser­vice, both in Mata­mata and fur­ther afield.

Vossen is keen to drive the walk­way extension over the com­ing months, a ma­jor Ro­tary project in Mata­mata.

This will run from the Pe­ria Road Ro­tary Me­mo­rial Grove, planted in 2015, to Daw­son Street.

Out­go­ing pres­i­dent Michelle Tanner said the past year had been full of high­lights for Ro­tary Mata­mata in­clud­ing the very suc­cess­ful Con­cert by the Lake and the es­tab­lish­ment of a Ro­tary In­ter­act club at Mata­mata Col­lege.

At the changeover func­tion, Ro­tary Mata­mata recog­nised Lynette Stan­ley as Ro­tar­ian of the Year, while Lisette Hulme was made a Paul Har­ris Fel­low for her work with the in­ter­na­tional char­ity Days for Girls.

Ro­tar­i­ans David Parker and David Hulme were also recog­nised with Paul Har­ris Fel­lows for their out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions to Ro­tary Mata­mata.
