Tributes to 100 Years of Service
 
On May 14, 2015 the club held a Centennial Year Gala dinner and program at Bay City's Doubletree Conference Center. Among the various presentations and speeches was presentation of certificats from Rotary International, The City of Bay City, and the State of Michigan. Those appear below.

Following fellowship and dinner, Eric Jhlha recognized special guests. Jim Griffiths and Rev. Ann Grady honored deceased members with a Yellow Rose ceremony. President Ron spoke, followed by District Governor Delores Brock.

Eric Jylha looked back over the first 100 years followed by the presentation of a video about the club, which was highlighted with songs by Rob Clark. Jerome Yantz recognized Paul Harris fellows and announced that 100% of the membership will have received their Paul Harris designation this year.

The keynote address "A Bag of Coins" was presented by Dr. Mary Berge, a Rotary leader from Zone 29 in the Pennsylvania region.

The Gala was closed by Ron as he told Rotarians to look ahead to the next 100 years and to "Light Up Rotary".
