Welcome to Parole Rotary Club

Chartered in 1985, the Parole Rotary Club is a service club of approximately 67 professional and business leaders both retired and active, who share an interest in learning more about the needs in our community and how we can make an impact. In addition, to numerous hands-on volunteer projects, we raise funds each year to provide grants to non-profit organizations that help local children in arts, education, and welfare. Our vision is “We will make a positive difference for youth today, so they will make a difference tomorrow.” Most funds are raised by parking cars at the Naval Academy’s home football games followed by a fun tailgate.

During my year as president, I will continue to work on expanding our public image to attract interested members. We are all about #makingadifference. Our club values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all ages and backgrounds.  While Books for International Goodwill (BIG)continues to be our major international project, we have collaborated with other Rotary Clubs, to support a water project in Honduras.

I encourage you to come and see what we are all about. We meet almost every Tuesday for breakfast at 7:30-8:30 am at the Doubletree Hotel, 210 Holiday Court, Annapolis or by Zoom. Each meeting has an interesting speaker who informs and entertains us on a variety of community and international topics. In addition, you’ll soon make new friends who share your community spirit!

Your In Rotary Service,
Gene Deems, President – 2023-24
