Welcome to the Rotary Club of Washington, D.C.! Our club was founded in 1912, celebrating more than a century of Service Above Self.

At 12:30, the bell was rung and President Shaun called the meeting to order. Cell phones were switched off.   American members pledged allegiance to the flag. John Jackson gave the words of inspiration, reminding us of the virtue of humility.  John also made available copies of his book about his father’s long ministry as a pastor and teacher.

Over the last two years Divya, Naina, and Quentin Wodon conducted research for the district through surveys and interviews of Rotarians. The book with their findings is about to be published!

Over the past year there have been four trips by seven Rotarians (Wilson, Cohen, Messer, Charles, Kanda, Barnes and Pyle) to Lucea, Jamaica to work in partnership with the Lucea Rotary Club in providing service and to  shape additional opportunities for our membership to participate in direct service.

Rotary International published an announcement that several Rotarians have recently reported receiving fraudulent emails, including one with the subject line "Proposed Rotary Visit." It fraudulently claims to be from a Rotary club president in Nigeria asking for information to help coordinate exchanges or to partner on projects.

Also be aware of Facebook pages or other websites using the Rotary logo without permission in order to solicit money and imply a relationship with Rotary.

Rotary Club of Washington, DC Victimized by Nationwide Check Fraud Scam


In 2009, the Rotary Club of Washington, DC, discovered it was the victim of a check fraud scam being perpetrated by what is believed to be a number of individuals throughout the country.  The checks are being sent to persons who attempt to sell items online. 


The checks are issued in amounts in excess of the item being purchased and the seller is then asked to send the excess to a person through wire transfer. We have been alerted to other similar methods intended to scam money out of unsuspecting inviduals.


Please continue to be vigilant and check with our office if you have any questions.
