CENTENNIAL HILLS ROTARY CLUB DISBANDS
The Centennial Hills Rotary Club disbanded in March due to dwindling membership and financial support.
“It got to the point that with the few members we had, it wasn’t sustainable,” club president Ray Jansma said.
At its peak, the group had 27 members. Five members remained when the group disassembled March 15, Jansma said. Rotary International requires clubs to have a minimum of 25 charter members, or Rotarians.
The Centennial Hills Rotary Club was chartered in April 2008 and had weekly meetings and charity events, including Taste of Centennial Hills in May 2010 to benefit Three Square food bank and an annual golf tournament to benefit the Lili Claire Foundation. The group canceled its charity golf tournament planned for April 21.
Jansma said members moved away or left the group, and recruitment efforts weren’t fruitful. Jansma assumed the position of president when the elected official moved away. He was president-elect for 2012-13 prior to that.
