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?

ANNOUNCEMENTS

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.

ROTARY MINUTE
 
 
February 24, 2020

When Paul Harris organized his first group of men to meet weekly, he did not just approach businessmen. He wanted a cross-section of business and professional people who would represent various population groups in Chicago.  After many years, Rotarians who joined would declare that they represented a specific vocation or classification of jobs.  

When we joined Rotary, most of us were assigned a classification (or a job title).  That brings people representing as many businesses or professions to our team. Past members have included a mayor, a city manager, a county administrator, doctors, police and dozens of other businesses and professions.

Rotary is looking for community leaders, businessmen/women, and professionals who want to serve their community and help those in need. As the Johnson County Rotary, we could have representatives of any county departments and service.  We should also have representatives of jobs found in our neighborhoods and business parks.  

When looking for prospects, think of business people you use?  With whom do you like to work?   Who has an optimistic spirit?   Who lives a life of service?  We need people you like and trust.   That’s how we grow the club.

As we work on membership, let’s see if we can build this team.  Johnson County is a vital, growing and creative.    And so are we!
