Welcome to the Rotary Club of Annapolis

President's message

Club President

The Rotary Club of Annapolis continues to build upon the history of over 102 years of serving the community and fulfilling the motto of “Service Above Self”.  Our club’s membership of 160 Rotarians is growing with each new member’s commitment to Service and Fellowship and improve our community of Annapolis where we live and work.

I am honored to be a member of the Rotary Club of Annapolis that makes 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.

Coming up Friday, August 4th, 2023 is our 78thAnnual Crab Feast, an event that brings the Annapolis community together for a fun and tasty Maryland tradition that raises essential funding for grants for local charities and non-profit organizations.  I also look forward to other club activities and efforts, such as:  the 91st 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 be focusing on strengthening the relationship between our Club, the Rotoract Club and the Interact Clubs that we support. I am a strong supporter of Education and the International Youth Exchange, we will be supporting two inbound Exchange students this year (hosting is an amazing and enriching experience). Fellowship is an essential part of our club, It’s one of the key things I look forward to each week at meetings, the CrabFeast, Black Tie & Diamonds and all of the many activities and events that we sponsor.  I urge all members to get involved, there are so many ways to serve our Community and build better Friendships at The Rotary Club of Annapolis.

The Rotary Theme for 2023-2024 is “Create Hope in the World”.  It is with excitement and humility 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,

Bob Reedy
