Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary’s people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

Celebrating Our First Year of Milestones!
July 1, 2022. That’s the day a group of local leaders passionate about service to our community joined forces to launch Frederick County’s newest Rotary club – Key City Rotary.
Our club prides itself on offering “a new way to Rotary” – focusing more on hands-on community service while building friendships with each other. Building relationships builds a stronger community!
From the outset, our vision was big: gather 90 dedicated individuals who share the same passion for service to the community. We shattered our first-year goal by welcoming 104 leaders to our club.
In our first year, we set a modest goal that we would have complete nine service projects – and quickly saw there were more opportunities to serve. Our members logged 452 hours of volunteer work through 23 service projects. That is something to be proud of!
Giving went beyond service hours. We discovered that our members also have a heart for philanthropy. We surpassed our goal for donations to the Rotary Foundation by a whopping 24%.
So, as we look back on some of these milestones and an unforgettable inaugural year, it’s clear that Key City Rotary will be making an impact in the Frederick County community long into the future. We can’t wait to see what our second year holds!
