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.
