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.

Hello fellow Rotarians! I am pleased to share the details of our 14 January lunch gathering.
President Jennifer called the meeting to order at 12:30 PM. With members still queuing at the buffet, she spoke over the clinking of silverware, again reminding everyone to arrive on time. After leading us in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, she called on Pat Cunningham for words of inspiration. Pat drew from swimmer Diana Nyad’s TED Talk titled “Never, Ever Give Up.” Nyad is the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. Confronting venomous jelly fish, large sharks and the turbulent Florida Straits, she tried this swim and failed four times. Scientists, endurance experts and her closest friends repeatedly told her that this feat would be impossible. Yet on 2 September 2013, after 53 hours in the water swimming 110 miles, Diana Nyad achieved her goal at age 64. As she declares, “Never, ever give up!”

Past President Shaun English, Chair of the Nominating Committee, announced the following members were elected to serve on the Club and Foundation boards for the 2015-2016 Rotary year.

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