In February of 1976, President Dean Cummins of the Greeley Rotary Club began the process of establishing the "Rotary Club of West Greeley". On April 29, 1976, the first organizational meeting was held. Officially the Centennial Rotary Club was chartered on May 8,1976, with 34 Charter Members. The name was changed in honor of Colorado's 100th anniversary and the Nation's 200th. The name change was made possible by the Greeley Rotary Club agreeing to share its membership territory with the Centennial Club rather than defining a separate club territory.

Then District Governor Morris C. Jones of Laramie, Wyoming was the featured speaker at the charter banquet held on June 24, 1976 at the UNC University Ballroom.

Each year since it's founding Centennial Rotary has hosted a Rotary Youth Exchange Student. Students have come to the US from Brazil, Ecuador, France, Germany, Taiwan and Australia, to name few.

Social events throughout the year add excitement and fellowship to our activities. These include the fall Rotary Reverse Raffle and Silent Auction, which annually raises $10,000.00; the annual Installation Banquet; a Children's Christmas Party; and other events such as attending the Eagles Hockey games and the Union Colony Dinner Theatre.
