The Marshall Rotary Club marked its 100th anniversary with a Centennial Celebration on Saturday, Aug. 24 at the Marshall Convention Center. 

Club President Barbara Judkins spoke to the guests, outlining some of the most recent beneficiaries of the Marshall Rotary Club’s giving, including Mission Marshall, the Harrison County Literacy Council and a community in Guatemala that now has new equipment in the maternity ward of its hospital to help increase birth rates.

Wiley College choir students performed live music throughout the Saturday event, and Bear Creek Smokehouse catered. Rotary International President Mark Maloney traveled from Alabama to join in the festivities.
