The Bellaire/Mancelona club was originally chartered February 21, 1948. The Bellaire Club was chartered as a stand-alone club on January 13, 1989. We are located in Bellaire, MI in the beautiful Chain-of-Lakes area of northwest Michigan and we service a large area wihin Antrim County, including the villages and townships of Bellaire, Central Lake, and Alden.
Youth programs are hallmarks of our club. We are proud to have long sponsored young leaders to the Rotary Life Leadership Conferences from each of our two area schools, Bellaire High School and Central Lake High School. Student-of-the-Month awards for scholarship, with the help of the schools’ administration, are another way, among many, we deliver on our mission to support local youth.
As one drives about our service area, please notice the Bellaire Rotary Soccer Park, the Rotary Ball Parks along M-88, and the Rotary Slide Sets in Central Lake’s Thurston Park.
