It was good to get together with our fellow club members last Thursday. Big thanks to Pam Stockman, our club president, for making this happen. 


President's Message

Despite some technical difficulties, we had a very interesting speaker last week at our Zoom meeting.  Thank you Dave Gras for inviting Mike to speak about the Natural Gas Industry.  We will be meeting on Zoom again this week form 8:00 am to 8:30 am.  Please refer to the access information listed in this newsletter.  Remember you always have the option to just listen in by calling the audio number.   Right now the shelter in place order is scheduled to be lifted on May 4th.  If that comes to pass, I am assuming our financial obligation to the Holiday Inn hotel will resume.   So, in the near future, we will have to decide when (and possibly how) to restart our in-person meetings.  In the meantime, please stay safe and I will see you on Zoom this Thursday.

District-Wide Rotary Meeting April 22nd at 12:00 p.m.
This week's program will be Darryl Burton (Co-founder) and Chris Iliff (Executive Director) of Miracle of Innocence. Darryl was wrongfully convicted of a murder he didn't commit and served over 24 years in prison, before being exonerated in 2008. Now a pastor at Church of the Resurrection, Darryl is giving back to help those still behind bars by raising funds and awareness, bringing about change, hope, and forgiveness. Learn more about Miracle of Innocence
The meeting will be held on Zoom (instructions for logging in below). If this is your first time using Zoom, log on 10 minutes early and we'll walk you through it. 
Look forward to seeing everyone on Weds. Any questions, email

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.

The World Health Organization, Rotary’s partner, is in real need of our Polio Plus dollars.  It seems that some very short-sighted government officials have cut our country’s support of this wonderful organization. 

However, Bill Gates and many entertainments and sports figures are coming to the rescue.  So should we in Rotary.  WHO has been at the forefront of every major health pandemic in the past 60 years.  They have also been active in every country in the world to help Rotary conquer Polio and have also been major players in the fight against malaria, measles and other diseases that can be overcome with education, clean water, and good health practices.

Our Rotary Foundation has supported projects all over the world alongside WHO.  Our Polio Plus dollars and our EREY contributions have really helped.

Go Rotary, Go!  Let’s support our World Health Organization and The Rotary Foundation!
