To celebrate the twentieth-year anniversary of the Centennial Rotary Club ​​and in support of Rotary District 5450's regional-wide Day of Service, the Club had chosen to celebrate by doing what it does best: serve the community. On May 8th the Club will serve the community in five different ways: a drug take-back program, an electronics ​recycling program, a blood drive, a Shred-Athon, and the awarding of their ​Club-sponsored brand-new ​community diversity award, ​as well as other exciting presentations.
