President's Message

We had a wonderful presentation last Thursday and can discuss briefly if we want to sponsor a student for an upcoming Entrepreneurial Bootcamp.  We also welcomed Gabriel Rop who visited our Zoom meeting and is interested in becoming a member.  Gabriel will be our speaker at this week's meeting.   On another note, we will be transitioning to a hybrid meeting format in September.  A hybrid means that members can choose to attend the meeting in person or on Zoom.  The Holiday Inn hotel has been very welcoming and flexible to meet our needs.  We are considering having one hybrid meeting in September and then 2 per month moving forward.   More information will be shared when the plan is finalized.  See you Thursday!

Lenexa Rotary would like to encourage everyone to have a little fun while walking the paths and stream ways in JOCO. Look for painted rocks, take pics and messenger it to this Facebook page and it will be added to these pics. We will call this the Lenexa Rotary PEACE, LOVE & FRIENDSHIP ROCK CHALLENGE. We will have weekly winners for the pic taker and if we can ID the artist, they will win too. Everyone can vote by "liking the rock of your choice. Gift Cards for carry out at one of our local eating establishments will be the prizes. Will end May 15th with a Grand Prize Winner. Who said that The Lenexa Art Fair is not taking place in some form?

Meals On Wheels

Due to the COVID-19 situation, Johnson County Meals on Wheels has switched to STAFF ONLY Monday Delivery for the unforeseeable future.  They will not schedule volunteers to deliver meals.  Meals on Wheels clients will receive a weekly Frozen Box of meals as well as a large box of Shelf-Stable meals.  They are also contacting clients weekly to check-in. I will notify everyone when the regular schedule will resume.  



July 27, 2020

Our world is in turmoil!   The pandemic is growing in our country and third world countries. Politicians are demeaning anyone who disagrees with them.  Neighbors are not speaking to each other if they don’t agree as partisans.  Leaders are attempting to divide people. Dictators are trying to silence protesters.  

Then I see the ROTARIAN in my mailbox.   “THIS IS OUR MOMENT” popped out in big letters, followed by “We do the hard work,” and “We bring people together” and “We solve problems.”     What positive messages come from Rotary in our times of trial!  

That is right!   We, as Rotarians and humanitarians, do these things daily.  Our actions in our neighborhoods, our churches, our stores, and offices show who we are every day of our lives.  

Think about:   How did I bring people together today?  Or, “What problem did I help solve that helps people in need?
