A Coffeyville civic organization is marking a century of practicing service above self in the community. The Coffeyville Rotary Club was formed in 1921 with 25 members. The Club has always been active in the community with its first major project the establishment of a camp, now known as Cedar Bluff Camp.
The club also annually rings bells for the Salvation Army at Christmas time, provides scholarships for local students, sponsors special events at college sporting events and hosts one of Coffeyville’s annual events, Mardi Gras. The Club recently marked its 100th year by celebrating with a special Centennial event that drew numerous dignitaries to town including Rotary District 6110 District Governor Kevin Merrill and his wife Lisa.
