The Rotary Club of Annapolis Announces Expansion to Three Groups

Annapolis, MD (October 21, 2019) – The Rotary Club of Annapolis has expanded as the Club welcomes new members and flexible schedules.

The Club, founded in 1921, consists of approximately 130 members who have traditionally attended meetings every week. Recently, two new groups have formed to provide more flexible scheduling for those who want to be actively engaged in Rotary, yet cannot commit to weekly meetings.  The new schedules are attracting new and returning Rotarians.

President Carletta Allen leads the original Lunch Group, which meets Thursdays from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm at the Annapolis Yacht Club.  Speakers and programs are featured every week.

The Breakfast Group, which was launched earlier this year by past Rotary President Elaine Shanley, meets the fourth Tuesday of the month from 8:00 am to 9:00 am at Miss Shirley’s on West Street.

The Happy Hour Group, developed by past Rotary President Bill Regan, meets the third Tuesday of the month from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Paladar’s in the Annapolis Towne Center.

All three entities are part of the Rotary Club of Annapolis.  Individuals are invited to join and attend the Group that best suits their schedule. Visits between Groups are encouraged, and members support each other’s initiatives. The Rotary Club of Annapolis also sponsors Rotaract and Interact Clubs in the community. 

Guests are welcome to all programs. To learn more and to attend a meeting, contact President-Elect Frank Andracchi, 410-615-0460 or
