About Us

Rotary is a worldwide organization that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations and helps build goodwill around the world. The main objective of Rotary is service, facilitating camaraderie and networking — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.

Please join us! You don't need to be personally invited or nominated to become a member!

Our Club meets Tuesday mornings from 7:15 - 8:30 am at The Embassy Suites Hotel, 10250 E Costilla Avenue, Centennial, CO 80112. We suggest arriving at 6:45 am for breakfast. In the event of a snowstorm, we will NOT meet if Cherry Creek High School is closed.

We welcome you to attend one of our meetings. We are a fast growing club with dedicated, fun loving members of all ages who are from all walks of life. Centennial Rotary is a morning club providing a cooked to order hot breakfast and therefore the cost for non-club members to attend is $20.The first meeting's breakfast for prospective members is complimentary. We think you will find that Rotary membership will enrich your life as it has ours!

 

Centennial Club History:  Chartered: May 10, 2001

The club was sponsored by the Highlands Ranch Club. Loy Dickinson, District Governor Special Representative, was instrumental in getting the club up and running. Representing Colorado’s newest city, the Centennial Rotary Club’s application for Charter had the fastest acceptance in the history of District 5450 - 48 hours.

Charter night was special and held on July 26, 2001. Events included entertainment provided by Young Music Ambassadors from Colorado, Russia and Taiwan and a silent auction. Past Rotary Foundation Director, Grant Wilkins, was the keynote speaker.
