Welcome to Boise Centennial Rotary

 

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote high ethical standards, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

The Boise Centennial Rotary Club was chartered in 2007 to provide a smaller, more intimate alternative to some of the larger clubs in the Treasure Valley.

Boise Centennial's community service focus is fighting childhood illiteracy through programs such as the District 5400 3rd Grade dictionary program.

Our club actively donates to Rotary International and is consistently ranked as one of the top-giving clubs per member within the District 5400 region.

Winter Wine'd Up!

 

Boise Centennial Rotary’s 4th Annual Winter Wine'd Up was a great success! On March 14th, Boise Centennial Rotary teamed up with four local wineries and members of the Treasure Valley community to meet new friends and catch up with old ones, taste wine, and raise money for CATCH, Inc. and our club’s own Idaho Scholarship Fund.

This year's highlights included a silent and live auction (which had an autographed BSU football helmet and basketball), card draw, and a paddle raise.

We are thankful for the generosity and participation from all who attended or donated items for this event. A special thanks to our sponsors: Riverside Hotel, Idaho Power, Moffatt Thomas, and Paige Mechanical Group. We look forward to next year!

Dictionary Dynamos

 

The Boise Centennial Rotary Club started its dictionary program in 2008, providing dictionaries to third grade students all around the Treasure Valley. Over 300 enthusiastic students have received their own books, which are presented and demonstrated by Boise Centennial Rotary club members. The excitement and overwhelming desire to learn exhibited by the students is awe-inspiring.

Boise Centennial vigorously supports the District 5400's literacy campaign and is looking forward to presenting more dictionaries in the years to come.

Highway Cleanup

 

Biannually, the Boise Centennial Rotary Club heads up toward Idaho City to beautify a stretch of Idaho highway.

Though the conditions can be cold and the blind turns dangerous, it is well worth it for the fresh air, camaraderie, and opportunity to make Idaho even more beautiful. Plus, the orange vests are pretty darn stylish.
