President's message

Club President

Since our charter in 1921, the Rotary Club of Annapolis has enjoyed a long history of community service.  The club is comprised of 140 members between three meeting groups, all whom are dedicated and focused on improving our local community and the world.

Close to home we are busy hosting signature events to raise money for the community. On average our club donates more than $200,000 annually to local organizations and international projects.

Take a minute to navigate through our website.  Learn more about Rotary, our calendar of events, the many grant opportunities we offer, our history and much more. Then consider joining us to see what we are all about – Service Above Self.

Visiting Rotarians and non-member visitors are welcome to join our weekly luncheon meetings.  The cost is $18.00 and is payable at the welcome table. We look forward to meeting you.
