Westbrook-Gorham Rotary has a rich history of supporting our communities for nearly 100 years.  Chartered on March 8, 1926, we continue to serve our namesake communities in many ways:

 - We support education and economic development by awarding annual scholarships and toolships to students at Westbrook Regional Vocational Center, Westbrook High School and Gorham High School. 

 - We fight food insecurity by volunteering with The Locker Project and donating to local food pantries in our community and in our schools. 

 - We support literacy by donating young children's books to our libraries in honor of our speakers and by reading with students in Gorham Schools. 

 - We mentor our youth through support of Interact Clubs (youth service clubs) in WHS and GHS, and send several students each year to a leadership development program - RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards)

 - We support economic development through our long-time partnership with WRVC and the City of Westbrook. Since 1957, we have partnered with the WRVC to fund and sell homes constructed by the students. This provides the opportunity for hands-on, real world experience for the students and provides funding for many scholarships.

 - We continue our strong connection with the Westbrook Regional Vocational Center through our meetings in the Culinary Arts Dining Room.

 - We work towards disease prevention and eradication by supporting the world-wide Polio Plus initiative to finally eradicate this dread disease from the world.

 - We have provided clean water to rural villages and small communities in Guatemala through multiple clean water projects.


We raise funds to benefits these causes, and more, through various fundraisers, including our annual golf classic held on the fourth Monday in  September.  To read about the current year's tournament, visit our golf website:
