Service Above Self

One Profits Most Who Serves Best.

That is one of Rotary’s mottos and creeds our club lives by. We are part of a worldwide organization of more than 1.4 million business, professional and community leaders. Rotarians provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace worldwide.

Commemorating Key City Rotary’s Inaugural Year: Effecting Change in Frederick County!

Key City Rotary Club left an impressionable mark across Frederick County in its debut year!

With 23 diverse service projects, Key City Rotary volunteers collectively poured 452 hours of volunteer work into the community.

Breaking down the numbers, that’s over 5 hours of service across 75 members who participated in our projects. The impact in the community broken down by dollars and cents is $16,336 —a clear illustration of the club’s dedication to affecting real change.

Members put our principles into action through projects ranging from food drives to beautifying our local parks for the community to enjoy. Through Key City Rotary Club service projects, we’re meeting immediate community needs, as well as foster an atmosphere of optimism and goodwill.

At the heart of Key City Rotary’s narrative lies a passionate group of individuals committed to giving back to this community. Our debut year was just the start. There’s no slowing us down now.
