OUR CLUB HISTORY
The Rotary Club of the Capital City was chartered on April 26, 1984. Our club name reflects our intent to draw members from throughout the city. In the District 7710 listings our club is often termed "The Capital City Rotary Club."
Our club is one of:
8 local clubs
47 District 7710 clubs
35,000+ Rotary International clubs with over 1.2 million Rotarians in 200 countries.
Our club met initially at the Hilton on Hillsborough Street. Through the years our club has met at a number of well-known local venues — the Velvet Cloak, Ballantine’s Cafeteria, Hudson Memorial, North Hills Club, and currently Carolina Country Club.
Our club was founded as a breakfast club to give members flexibility in their professional schedules. We continue to draw members from the Raleigh area, with an ongoing focus of service above self, commitment to our community, and respect for others.
Through the direct involvement of our members, our club seeks to improve our local community and our world through projects focused on education and youth development.
The foundations of our relationships and service are the common foundations of Rotary International:
The Four-Way Test
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Our club participates both directly and through contributions in projects of both regional and international scope that provide lasting solutions for communities fighting disease, hunger, illiteracy, and poverty.
