Fresh face for role as president of Roma’s Rotary Club

ROTARY newcomer Joshua Freeman was handed over the reins as club president at their annual changeover dinner last Saturday night.

Having only been with the club for just over 12 months, Mr Freeman was selected as president early in to his service but was the club’s first choice because of his capabilities.

“I was approached about the role of presidency for the Rotary Club in Roma and I was really delighted to accept because the club has been involved in so many great causes within the community, particularly with Pinaroo,” Mr Freeman said.

“The club has fostered a really positive culture of supporting a number of other humanitarian causes, locally as well as internationally.”

Mr Freeman received a Rotary tertiary scholarship as a high school student in New Zealand and has wanted to give back to the club that has helped him.

“I have had knowledge around Rotary for quite a while and I have always really wanted to be involved in Rotary,” he said.

Mr Dore was grateful for his time as president.

“If you don’t do it you really don’t experience the camaraderie of being involved in a club like this.”
