Ro­tary history is un­veiled

CHB Mail - - NEWS -

A two-year project came to fruition last month when mem­bers of the Waipuku­rau Ro­tary club un­veiled a me­mo­rial to its past pres­i­dents.

Club mem­bers gath­ered at the Ar­bore­tum (For­est of Mem­o­ries) on Puke­ora Scenic Road, Waipuku­rau to carry out some tree main­te­nance to un­veil the Past Pres­i­dents beam, which has name plaques of all pres­i­dents from 1943 un­til 2010.

The beam and plaques are near the red­wood trees and ad­ja­cent to the road.

The Ro­tary club was formed in 1943 with AW Car­pen­ter was its first pres­i­dent. This year is the 75th year that the club has been op­er­at­ing.

The beam was un­veiled by two of the old­est past pres­i­dents — Kevin Pike and Bar­rie Mabin.
