Full year ahead for Peter Vossen
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.
