Welcome to the Rotary Club of Annapolis

President's message

Club President

The Rotary Club of Annapolis continues to build upon the rich heritage of over 101 years of serving the community and fulfilling the motto of “Service Above Self”.  Our club’s vibrant membership of 155 Rotarians is growing with each new member bringing a wealth of lived experiences and a commitment to serve others.  It is amazing to watch the Rotary Club of Annapolis making a difference in the lives of others whether supporting local schools and neighborhoods, encouraging reading via Little Free Libraries, or raising funds for scholarships and grants.

I am excited about returning to the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium for our 77th Annual Crab Feast, an event that will once again bring the Annapolis community together for a rich Maryland tradition and raise essential funding for grants for local charities and non-profit organizations.  I also look forward to other club activities and efforts, such as:  the 90th Navy Night in February, Black Tie and Diamonds in March, Helping Hands in April, “Ringing the Bell” for Salvation Army, and Quick Impacts to name a few.   

During the next year, I will emphasize strengthening the fellowship among club members and identifying additional opportunities to fill the gaps of service in the Annapolis community.  I challenge everyone to participate in a new committee or project, assist in identifying community needs, and engage with fellow Rotarians to build new and better friendships.  

The Rotary Theme for 2022-2023 is “Imagine Rotary”.  It is with great honor and deference that I have been charged to serve as the President of the Rotary Club of Annapolis and I look forward to supporting the community and working with fellow Rotarians, the Board, Rotaractors, District 7620, and Rotary International. 

In Rotary Service,

Rob Dews
President
District 7620, club 5853

Thank you for your generous support of our 2022 Rotary Crab Feast, with your ticket and raffle purchases and direct donations! 

 

We look forward to seeing everyone at our 78th Annual Crab Feast in August 2023!

77th Annual Rotary Crab Feast 2022 on FRIDAY, August 5

 

The 77th annual Rotary Club of Annapolis Crab Feast will be held on FRIDAY, August 5th, 2022, 5pm-8pm, at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis.  This special event is not only the world’s largest crab feast but also a major fund-raiser that benefits local community and cultural organizations.

The feast is all-you-can eat and drink, including large male crabs, plus sweet Maryland corn on the cob, BBQ, draft beer, and assorted sodas and water.  A bake sale and cake raffle can finish your feast with sweetness.  Also for sale will be Crab Feast T-shirts and other memorabilia.

For the eighth consecutive year, Annapolis Rotary is working with the non-profit Annapolis Green to make the Crab Feast a ZERO-Waste event. More than 7 TONS of waste per year has been composted. That means NOTHING will go to the landfill. EVERYTHING will be recycled or composted. In just two months the Crab trays, crab shells & all other food waste, all paper products, spoons, knives, and even wooden mallets go in compost. Yes, that includes spoons, knives, and the clear beer cups too. They look like plastic, but are made from plants and therefore, are compostable! Please help us make this Zero-Waste by putting your trash in the appropriately labeled bin.

An excellent way to entertain special clients and guests or to recognize the hard work of loyal employees is in Preferred Dining.  Participants can use a private entrance, enjoy guaranteed seating in one of the preferred Dining tents and a wait staff that will bring the crabs to their table.  Tables of 10 or 12 are available, as well as individual seating.  Contact Lisa Ausherman at ‭301-676-5566‬ (lisa@amazingspacedesign.net), or contact Pam Urnowey at 850-619-1645 (pamela.urnowey@homeinstead.com) for information about Preferred Dining.

Book mark the 2023 Black Tie & Diamonds Event; the recipient will be the Annapolis Police Department Foundation!
