President's Message

The Learning Club is in immediate need for snacks including: wrapped snacks (e.g., granola bars), sandwich crackers, pure fruit strips, Nutri-gain bars, and Cheez-its. Although they do not typically supply fruit drinks (with attached straws) to the students due to the cost, they welcome the donations.  Please consider picking up some snacks while you are out shopping and bring them to the meeting this week. We will collect the snacks and deliver them to The Learning Club. Hope to see you this Thursday!

Rotary Minute January 31, 2022
Rotary is celebrated as a Service organization, but is also a Training organization.  Rotarians are always encouraged to be leaders. We are taught to use and develop the skills of organization and to see projects through.  Many of us have gained and developed those skills as board members, project organizers, club secretaries and club presidents.  These traits have led Rotarians and Rotary projects to success all over the world.
Rotarians provide youth training opportunities with Rotaract and Interact clubs in schools and colleges. Other opportunities, such as the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA) are available to local youth all over the state.  This training experience has sent hundreds of Kansas kids out into their communities to be future leaders.  
For years, our club  has sponsored high school youth to attend that week-long summer academy.  In fact, club members have sent children, grandchildren,  nephews and nieces, neighbors and church kids we know to our District 5710 RYLA.  If you know kids of sophomore or junior year in HS, you might want to consider asking for an application.  
The most recent ROTARIAN shows how we can train ourselves to be better people, leaders and Rotarians.  Many examples of training and schooling opportunities are featured.  Here we see  club projects, our five Peace Academies and projects that teach skills for living in  the US and foreign countries. 
Rotary is serving, but it also grows  leaders who continue to spread the message of peace,  ethical living and concern for our fellow men and women.
