Serving Our Community, Locally and Worldwide

Chartered in 1986, the Rotary members of Columbia/Patuxent are a diverse group of business and professional leaders from the Columbia and Howard County area who take an active role in their communities while enriching their personal and professional lives.

We volunteer in communities at home and abroad to help those in need, support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger and improve the health and lives of so many. We are the county’s largest club and each year we are active in the most service projects. We raise and give more money than any other club in the county. To date we have contributed $150,000 to the Rotary Foundation.
