Welcome and thank you for visiting the Rotary Club of Hunt Valley web site. I hope that you will take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our Rotarians.
A special word of congratulations to 2013-2014 President Matt May on his new appointment as Area Governor of our district. We are fortunate to have him in our club and appreciate his dedication and leadership.
I am humbled and excited about working with the awesome men and women of the Hunt Valley Rotary Club. Rotary for many starts with a commitment to “service above self.” We are a volunteer organization, open to business professionals who subscribe to the values of Rotary. Membership Chair Joe Spellman would love to speak with you about our club. We meet weekly on Wednesdays at the Hunt Valley Embassy Suites Hotel. Meetings are held during breakfast (8 am) on the first Wednesday and for lunch at noon during the rest of the month.
You will find our Club's Rotarians leading and participating in projects benefiting those less fortunate locally and abroad. Rotary's main objective is service: in the community, in the workplace and around the globe. One of our projects is the NCR Trail Service Project, led by Suzanne Amos, which affords beautification of a natural resource in our area. Foundation Chair Nancy Young and board member Linda Dieter led a collaborative effort with Gilchrist Hospice to provide ambulance services to their sister hospice in Tanzania.
I am particularly proud of our relationship with schools throughout our Baltimore County area. Programs like the dictionary project, which distributed dictionaries to 1,300 third graders last year, and the Four-Way Test Oratorical Contest have provided tremendous learning opportunities for several generations of children and teenagers. Irving Spitzberg champions the tradition that challenges young people to express their views using the Four-Way Test, Rotary’s template for successful problem solving used by Rotarians world-wide as a moral code for personal and business relationships. Efforts by Hunt Valley Rotarians also raised funds to purchase new warm winter coats for children in need in our local schools.
My vision for the Hunt Valley Rotary Club is to enhance business collaborations that foster the mission and promote the values of Rotary and to strengthen relationships with neighboring Rotary Clubs in order to improve our community.
Thank you for visiting our web site.
