July 5, 2019 (Race Entry Form) - The Rotary Club of Center will be hosting its 8th annual What-A-Melon 5K and Fun Run, Saturday, July 13th beginning on the downtown square.

Each year Rotary has chosen a local non-profit organization in which to donate proceeds of this event. In years past, we have donated to wonderful organizations such as the Fannie Brown Booth Memorial Library, Center Softball Association, Scouting, Shelby County Outreach Ministries, Shelby County Children’s Advocacy Center (twice), and Shelby County Cancer Fund. This year Rotary is donating to the Shelby County Historical Society which runs the Shelby County Museum and manages the beloved website which includes the Shelby County Graduates pages

The Fun Run and 5K returns to its original route this year starting on the downtown square. The fun run will begin at 7:00am and the 5K at 7:30am. Both events are for people of all ages. You can walk or run either event. Strollers are acceptable. T-shirts will be available for the first 125 participants.

Race registration is available online at or individual sign up forms can be picked up at Farmers State Bank or Shelby Savings Bank main branches.

Rotary encourages everyone to come out and participate in this fun family event.
