Who We Are
We are Rotarians: neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.
We meet Tuesdays at 7:30 AM for breakfast at The North Hills Club in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.
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: 1) Is it the TRUTH? 2) Is it FAIR to all concerned? 3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 4) 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.
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 initially met at the Hilton on Hillsborough Street. Through the years our club has moved from the Hilton to the Velvet Cloak, to Ballantines, to the The North Hills Club, where we have remained for over 15 years.
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.
Join Our Club
Becoming a club member requires commitment to The Four-Way Test, and modest, but meaningful, time and financial contributions. We hold weekly meetings, we hold social events and meet-ups, and we organize and lead service and volunteer activites each year. Participation in meetings, socials, and service activities are vital to being a contributing member.
Quarterly dues cover meals at meetings, club and Rotary International dues, socials, and engagements for volunteer opportunities.
Each new member is mentored by a designated club leader to ensure new members understand not only who our club is and how we serve, but also the role and impact of Rotary International.
