South Wairarapa Rotary

June 18, 2019 June 2019 No Comments

As part of its activities, South Wairarapa Rotary invites a wide range of interesting and influential people to address members at dinner meetings – from local community leaders to well-known national figures. We have all heard of acupuncture which has gradually moved into mainstream treatment. What most of us did not know is that it has developed a new approach called neuropuncture. Local acupuncturist Peter Larking explained this to us in a most interesting presentation recently. A lot of research is being undertaken to find out exactly how the body reacts to the needles and to the use of tiny electric currents. Peter said that this provides another treatment option for many conditions.

We also heard from local artist Rebekah Farr whose recent exhibition ‘Departures’ at Aratoi explored the theme of exile and migration. Rebecca maintains she is the only artist in New Zealand who uses the cold wax and oil technique. Rebekah described her journey as an artist and painter illustrating her story by the works she did at each stage. One of these depicted the Queen as a refugee which had a special impact. 

Rotary has now been serving the Wairarapa community for many years. Recently the Masterton South Rotary club held its 50th anniversary and the South Wairarapa Rotary club will also be celebrating its 50th anniversary in July.

Much has been achieved by Rotary in New Zealand over those 50 years.  From the establishment of the New Zealand Child Research Foundation by the Auckland Rotary Clubs in 1971, to the inception of the Rotary Youth Driver Awareness Course in 2002 by the Wellington district and on, Rotary have been providing critical services to New Zealand communities.
