Kawerau was founded in 1953 to service the Tasman Pulp and Paper Mill. Since then the town has grown and diversified into an attractive and vibrant district centre. The Rotary Club of Kawerau was chartered in 1961 and has worked closely with the Kawerau Council in the development of the town. The work has included clearing land, planting and developing parks. Another key area of continuing Rotary activity has been work with the young people of the district.
