Welcome to the Rotary Club of Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.  Our club was founded in 2003 and this year we are celebrating our first decade of Service Above Self.  

 

Together with our club’s Foundation, the Rotary Club of Capitol Hill Foundation, our club is involved in local and international service projects that give back to our local and global communities.  We have provided backpacks and school supplies to students in need, provided grants ranging from $250 to $5,000 to local nonprofits, handed out dictionaries to 3rd graders in the public and charter schools on Capitol Hill, built water wells in Bolivia, provided bed nets and malaria medication in Mali, and volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank. 

 

As one of three Rotary clubs in Washington D.C. (and the only breakfast meeting) we welcome visitors from around the world every week at our meetings.  Since most of our members, guests and speakers are working in or visiting our Nation's Capital, we find that having a morning meeting located at Union Station is extremely convenient for those who would like to begin a busy day of work or sightseeing with fellowship and service.

 

But we are not all just early birds who rush off to work at the sound of the closing bell, we regularly attend fellowship and social events including happy hours and End Polio Nights at National's Park and the Verizon Center.  

 

Our club meets Tuesdays at 7:15 a.m. at Uno Chicago Grill, Union Station (2nd Floor), 50 Massachusetts Ave., N.E., Washington, D.C. 20001.  We look forward to welcoming you to our meetings, service events, and happy hours soon.

 

Yours in Rotary Service,  

 

Chuck Charpentier 

Club President, 2013-2014
