2023-24 District Music Contest

Rotary District 5190
Warren & Fannie Annis Music Contest

Rotarian Jim Annis, Charter President of the Rotary Club of Reno Centennial Sunset, has sponsored the District Music Contest since 2013, as his parents both passed that year.  Jim’s family has a significant Rotary history.  His grandfather, Roderick Dhu Annis, was a Rotarian in Duluth, Minnesota in 1910 (missed being a Charter member by 10 months),  Jim’s father, Warren (pictured here) was the Charter Secretary of the Rotary Club of Pleasanton, California in 1965 and the Club’s third president and Jim’s brother, Larry, is past president of the same Club.
Jim sponsors the annual District Music Contest in honor of his family history in Rotary and in recognition that his parents were avid music lovers and always supportive of Rotary Youth projects.
