Club News
Centennial Rotary Club members and their families, along with CASA employees, help serve Thanksgiving Dinner to CASA's guests on November 9th at CASA's office in Parker.
On this cold November 12th Saturday morning, members of the Centennial Rotary Cub and their families collected various items to benefit the IFCS food bank at the King Soopers in Arapahoe Crossings.
On August 27th, 28 members and member families of the Centennial Rotary Club distributed over 1,050 boxes of peaches and pears to hundreds of people who came to pick them up at two locations: the parking lot of the Embassy Suites in Centennial and at the clubhouse parking lot in Heritage Eagle Bend, a community located in Aurora.
Led by The Club Peaches and Pears Committee, the number of boxes of tree-ripened Palisade peaches and Bartlett pears set a new Club record this year. One hundred percent of the monies raised by this event are used to help fund the Club’s various philanthropic projects.
The mission of the Imagination Library of Colorado is to increase literacy by ensuring all young children in our area may participate in Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
Our goal is to provide sponsorship of over 500 children for a one year subscription to receive a new book every month to read in Centennial. It takes $25 to support each child per year. Will you please help us?

Brew n' Que was a real success with our club members selling beer and Margaritas. Club members spent a Saturday afternoon raising funds for our foundation.
The 16th annual State Of Our City was held on May 12 at the Wings Over The Rockies hangar at Centennial Airport. Hosted by our club with President Trip Butler at the helm, Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko updated the audience with the latest developments in the city. With sold out attendance of over 300 guests on a rather blustery spring day, this event marked the first time in three years that we have been able to host this event due to the pandemic.
Viktoria Tuckova is from the Czech Republic and is spending a full school year at Arapahoe High School.  A straight-A student, Viki’s best subjects are math because according to her, “I’m pretty good at it,” and learning new languages and their origins.  In addition to speaking Czech, she also speaks Slovak, French and English and has taken Spanish (but it just confused her French). She is also taking Latin for the challenge of it.
She is considering going to medical school after graduation but is still keeping her options open.  One of her favorite things about being in Colorado has been the people and the school,. It is very different from her experiences in the Czech Republic and she really enjoys how open everyone is and has developed many amazing relationships.
Viktoria Tuckova, Rotary Club of Centennial’s Student of the Quarter for Fourth Quarter, March-April 2022.
Giovanni Rebecchi is from Modena, Italy and is spending a full school year at Arapahoe High School. An exceptional student, Gio attends a language school at home where he studies both Latin and Greek and hopes to attend Law school, following in his father’s footsteps. At Arapahoe HS, Gio has pushed himself in the classroom and directly asked to take the most challenging classes he can, including Calculus and AP English Literature. Gio has an adventurous spirit and has chosen to make the most of his time in the United States. He has volunteered his time as a mentor for special needs students in the unified basketball program, and he plans on to joining the track team this spring.
