Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - LIONS CLUB NEWS

Af­ter 30 years as a Mata­mata Lion, Garry Stan­ley now holds the po­si­tion of club pres­i­dent.

Stan­ley, a for­mer long stand­ing Mata­mata-Pi­ako dis­trict coun­cil­lor, has taken over the role from im­me­di­ate past pres­i­dent David Har­ris.

In his pres­i­dent’s mes­sage on the club bul­letin, Stan­ley said he had ‘‘big boots to fill’’.

‘‘I am for­tu­nate to be fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of pres­i­dents of our Lions Club who have set a great prece­dents.

‘‘If I fol­low their ex­am­ple, we can’t go wrong.

‘‘It is an hon­our and a priv­i­lege to be pres­i­dent of the Lions Club of Mata­mata.’’

Stan­ley ap­plauded Har­ris who stepped up into the role of pres­i­dent fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of the club pres­i­dent Alex John­son.

‘‘Dave’s lead­er­ship of the board and the club has been ex­cel­lent and I’m sure that we all ap­pre­ci­ate his ef­forts on be­half of the club.’’

He com­mended board mem­bers and the com­mit­tee for their in­volve­ment in cru­cial po­si­tions which he said en­sure the suc­cess of the club.

‘‘We have an ex­cel­lent board for the com­ing year.’’
