A Little More About Us!

A Note From Our President:

Aleeta Gardner, Mount Vernon Club President


"The biggest communication problem is we don't listen to understand. We listen to reply." However, Mount Vernon Rotary is an organization that continually seeks to listen to our community to better understand it's needs.  Our club was founded in 1976, and plays an active role locally, while also supporting projects nationally and abroad! As Rotarians it is our mission to lead our lives according to "Service Above Self" and continuously seek ways to improve the community around us - whether that community is in our neighborhood or across the ocean. Mount Vernon Rotary's vision is to continually find ways to engage, improve, and support our community here in Alexandria and anywhere else in need of a kind and helping hand. I believe we should live a life of service and always aspire to improve the lives of others and the community at large.


Aleeta has extensive public service experience through volunteering for several organizations within the Washington, D.C. area. Her volunteering includes: student leadership, feeding the homeless, and mentoring at risk youth. She is a manager in federal consulting and an expert in business process optimization. She has a bachelor's degree from George Mason University in Government and Politics.
