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.
Thanks to our club’s ongoing fundraising efforts, we have funded local
and international projects totaling more than $1 million!
We are proud to have the most diverse group of multi-cultural Rotarians that includes a wide age range and nearly 40% professional women.
We take pride in the fact that our meetings are fun, the wit is quick, the guest speakers are interesting, and the work that gets done is the best it can be... all while never forgetting to take time to sit back and have a party, celebrate success and enjoy each others’ company as fellow caring human beings.
Our club is one of the best ways to lead and stay connected to your community. If you believe that you have a responsibility to give back to the community with a little of your time, energy and expertise, and if you believe that your business should be represented in a group of self-motivated people who believe the same thing, then we hope you will consider visiting our club. You just may be surprised at the camaraderie, the fun and the relevance of what we do for so many.
We hope to see you soon.
Meetings are Friday mornings at 7:30 a.m.
