Latest News

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Washington, D.C.! Our club was founded in June 1912 and we have been celebrating more than a century of Service Above Self in our local community and in the world.
We will all miss seeing Secretary Haleh Vaziri at the head table, hearing her welcome visitors, and reading her Meetings in Review. In this new Rotary year she serves as a board member and in a number of other significant roles (including production of the monthly newsletter for prospective members), and I get to serve as secretary. So, let me get started with a review of what happened at our lunch meeting of July 1, the first day of David Treadwell’s year as club president.
Rotarian Dan Mullin created this video of our tree planting in Farragut Square on May 13.

The Rotary Club of Washington DC and the Rotary Foundation of Washington DC have awarded more then $140,000 in grants to local nonprofits. Congratulations to all of the grant recipients!
Our 2015 Career Fair at Roosevelt High School was a huge success! And here's the video to prove it!
You may have heard that our DC Foundation owns a double cemetery plot in Parklawn Cemetery.  This was left to the Foundation by a former member who moved out of town and no longer had a need for the plot.  The Foundation Board has decided that it is appropriate to sell the plots so that the proceeds can be used for charitable purposes. 

Check out our new video that highlights our club's service projects, friendships and programs.


We would like to wish a very happy birthday to members celebrating birthdays this week...



Have you ever wondered where all those wonderful photos of our meetings that Lisa Cohen takes each week can be viewed? We now have a website, thanks to Lisa!
