Welcome to the Rotary Club of Annapolis

President's message

Club President

Since our charter in 1921, The Rotary Club of Annapolis has enjoyed a long history of community service.  Our 100th Club Birthday was February 11, 2021.  Our Club will be celebrating this momentous occasion on Saturday, September 25th at 6:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s in Annapolis.  Over 140 members will join in commemoration, as we continue our dedication of the Four-Way Test: Is it the truth?  Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships?  Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

My primary goal for this coming year, as we come off an unprecedented year of virtual meetings, is to reengage all members from our three groups:  breakfast, lunch and happy hour.  All members should not only consider participating in various committees, but also supporting your fellow Rotarians in Service Above Self.  I look forward to Crabs to Go in August, Helping Hands in September, Black Tie and Diamond in March and many other quick impact projects and the ability to distribute varying grants throughout our community.

The Rotary Theme for 2021-2022 is SERVE TO CHANGE LIVES.  I am honored to have been chosen for the President of The Rotary Club of Annapolis and I look forward to working with the Board and each member of our Club, both locally and internationally.

In Rotary Service,

Carolyn Richards

76th Annual Crab Feast 2021

 

The Rotary Club of Annapolis is holding our 76th Annual Crab Feast on SATURDAY August 7th, 2021.  

As always, our net proceeds will be promptly granted to local charities.

This event is an online pre-order, "drive-thru" pick-up event only at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.  We have ordering options for a bushel of crabs, a half bushel, or 1 or 2 dozen crabs - to include corn on the cob!  You can specify your pick-up window in half hour increments from 1:00pm until 5:30pm.  We are also selling raffle tickets online, with the winners notified by email!  

Rotary Crabs To Go! is focusing on providing crabs and raising funds in the safest manner possible. Crabs will be steamed onsite at the stadium and packaged for travel. Rotarians and volunteers will direct traffic and provide customers with their orders as they drive through designated lanes in the parking lot. 

Ordering is now available - click on the button immediately below!!!

Centennial Celebration - 100 Years!

Don Roland

The Rotary Club of Annapolis proudly celebrated its 100th birthday on February 11, 2021, with events continuing through the year.  To mark the Centennial, an entertaining history of the Club is being written, outlining characters who have shaped the Club and Annapolis for 100 years. During the year, the Club will erect and dedicate a flagpole to honor the City, hold a Centennial gala on September 25, and most importantly - highlight the many individuals, nonprofit organizations, and institutions intertwined in the Club’s rich history and community roots.

See the 100th Birthday Celebration program and slides from February 11th here!
