Explore our Fellowships
Rotary Fellowships consist of Rotarians worldwide who share a common interest in recreational activities, sports, hobbies, or professions. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world, explore a hobby or profession, and enhance your Rotary experience. Check out the current groups at, and if you could not find your interest, you can start a new one on My Rotary. 
The World Fellowships of Rotarian Gourmets was established in April, 1991 by our Past Club President Wilbur Walrond and Otto Rieves, now it has expanded worldwide. Rotarians, their spouses, Rotaractors and friends come together to share the love for the table, food and wine and above all the banquet.  
Rotary gives $20,000 to Richmond Hospital Foundation
Richmond Hospital Foundation has officially received a $20,000 donation from the Richmond Rotary Club!
There is a great and urgent need for new surgical equipment at Richmond General hospital. Having top-of-the line equipment will allow Richmond hospital to better serve their patients and the people of Richmond. For a growing population, better and newer equipment will mean shorter surgeries; greater efficiencies and faster procedures. 
That is why the Richmond Hospital Foundation started the Surgical Restart Campaign - a campaign to raise money to purchase new equipment in the fields of Minimally Invasive Surgery; Urology Care; Orthopedic Care; ENT Care; Laboratory. We are proud that Richmond Rotary came together to raise $20,000 for the Foundation!
