Annapolis Rotary Sunrise Satellite Club

Annapolis Rotary Sunrise Club

George Shenk

The Annapolis Rotary Club sponsors a morning Annapolis Sunrise satellite club. The Annapolis Rotary Sunrise Club meets from 8:00AM - 9:00AM on the 4th Tuesday of every month, at Miss Shirley’s Café located at 1 Park Pl, Annapolis, MD 21401. All Rotary members are invited. 

The Annapolis Rotary Sunrise Club is part of the Annapolis Rotary Club (ARC) that meets every Thursday at the Annapolis Yacht Club.  Since the ARC is the host club of the Sunrise Club, AM members are also full members of the host club and can engage in all activities sponsored by the host club (e.g., our annual Crab Feast).  The Annapolis Rotary Sunrise Club offers another option for individuals to join and participate in Rotary, but accommodating those that cannot regularly make a weekly lunch meeting.

If you are interested in joining the Annapolis Rotary Sunrise Club, and are not already a Rotarian, please contact President Elaine Shanley at for more information.

At the May 28 morning meeting of the Sunrise Rotary Club, a satellite club of the Rotary Club of Annapolis, a $2,000 check was presented for the Sunrise's Little Free Library Project. The Sunrise Club is working with several organizations, including the city's Recreation and Parks Department, to build Little Free Libraries in low-income housing areas of Annapolis. The project will receive books from the Parole Rotary Club's BIG Project. Local residents can take books to read and then return them for others to enjoy.

Sunrise Club plans to build a bench next to the "library." The committee hopes to build nine Little Free Libraries around the city. At the check presentation from the Rotary Club of Annapolis Foundation are, from left, Judy Miller, Dona Sturn, Pam Cole Finley, and Margaret Davis, Sunrise Club and "library" committee members, with, in white, Mimi Jones, chairman, RCA Foundation. The satellite club meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at Miss Shirley's Restaurant at West Circle.
