Following the news that Peter Rosenberg, a long serving member of the Barossa Village Board, had bequeathed a generous donation to the organisation, Board Chair John Angas shared his memories about a man who was community spirited.

“Peter’s contribution to the Nuriootpa Community was extensive,” recalls John. “He was a great contributor to the wine industry, was very involved in the Nuri Tigers football club where he was a life member, the management of the Nuri Centennial Park and more recently with Barossa Village.”

It was Linke’s Bakery where John would be summoned by Peter for a coffee and a quick chat about all things “Nuri”. “Our first official meeting was when I joined the Board of Barossa Village, around 2008.

I was delighted to hear that Peter had left a significant bequest to Barossa Village, as it proved that he truly believed in the cause that we stand for,” John says. As a board member, Peter was on the Finance and Audit subcommittee and the CEO evaluation committee where he contributed in a collegiate and cooperative manner.

Shortly after learning of Peter’s generosity, Barossa Village was also kindly bequeathed funds from a client who had lived in an independent living unit for many, many years.

John explains, “All donations and bequests ensure an even better standard of care to our many clients and residents and the funds are used specifically to enhance the lives of our residents and clients by investing in environments where people can socialise. By doing this, leaves a lasting positive legacy.”
