The Langwarrin Rotary Club was officially chartered on 17 May 1982 and the original memberships were business and professional men in the Langwarrin area.
The original meeting place of the Club was at the Amstel Golf Club in Cranbourne, then there followed a round circuit of the Baxter Tavern, then the Twins Restaurant, Langwarrin Community Centre, and now Beretta's Langwarrin Hotel, where honorary member Tommy Carter entertains every Sunday with his jazz band.
Without the tireless work on club members and their volunteers many of the great causes in the area would not get the funding that is much needed.
Some of the projects undertaken by the Club in the past include:
Donating to Langwarrin CFA for the purchase of "Jaws of Life"
Helped establish the Nepean Respite Centre in Seaford.
Built the skate park located on the Frankston-Cranbourne Road in Langwarrin for the local children.
Raised money for the provision of water pump for construction of a well in Naga, a small remote village in the Philippines.
Donated supplies of books to a needy school in the Solomon Islands.
More recently, the Club has been involved with helping to raise money for the Skye Fire Brigade to purchase a new tender, and also to raise funds for the Frankston Chaplaincy.
Locally, each year the Rotary Club of Langwarrin arrange scholarships for the local Langwarrin schools, co-ordinate with the Scouts for the annual Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal and various other ad-hoc projects, more recently the National Tree Day, helping local plant 1500 trees in Lloyd Park.
So if you are interested in becoming a member or just visiting the Rotary Club of Langwarrin they hold their meetings on the first and third Monday (except for Public Holidays) of every month at 6:30pm for 7:00pm start and visitors are welcome.
