.....for the June 1, 2016 East Wichita Rotary Meeting!  
 
Our program will be The Honorable Carol Beier and The Honorable Caleb Stegall, two of the Kansas Supreme Court Justices.  Listen in while two justices on the Kansas Supreme Court discuss with each other the way the Kansas court system works and their lives as colleagues on the state's highest bench. The justices also will answer audience questions, so come prepared for a lively exchange on today's hot issues.    An abridged version of each justice's bio is available by clicking on their names at the left, under speakers.   More detailed bios are available at http://kscourts.org/kansas-courts/supreme-court/justice-bios/ 
 
The meeting begins at noon at the Wichita Country Club.  Anticipating that the attendance will be high, and also because we will be inviting Rotarians from other Wichita-area clubs, reservations are MANDATORY, for ALL attendees, including East Wichita Rotarians.    Please email our Club Executive, Kim Hurtig, at hurtigfamily@att.netby Friday, May 20.  The cost for non-East Wichita Rotarians is $18.00 and payable AT the meeting.  Cash or check please; no credit cards accepted.  
 
Your reservation is your firm commitment to attend.  We look forward to seeing all of our East Wichita Rotarians and their guests, as well as our fellow local Rotarians and their guests, for this dynamic program! 
 

 

In lieu of accepting community grant applications for 2015-16 (July 1, 2015 - June 30, 2016), East Wichita Rotary’s local charitable support will be focused on awarding scholarships to support the growing number of deserving students from Sedgwick County who seek financial assistance to attend Kansas universities.  

 

 

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK

Although official "National Volunteer Week" for 2016 was April 10-16, the spirit of a Rotarian focuses on volunteerism year round. "Service Above Self", the motto of Rotary clubs around the world, is ever-present in the hearts of Rotarians!
 

 

East Wichita Rotary delivers Thanksgiving turkey dinners  - video created by students from  WSU's "Reporting the News" class. 

 

As is a favorite tradition of our Club, our members collected money this fall to purchase and deliver a record-setting (!) 92 full Thanksgiving dinners, complete with turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and rolls, to families in the community that might otherwise go without dinner on this special holiday!  Our members and their families look forward to this day every year because it is a time to share a smile with fellow Wichitans and present them with a good meal to share with their family!  Deliveries were done this year on the Tuesday before a Thanksgiving, a wonderful change that was met with enthusiasm ... and an incredibly beautiful November afternoon!  Many thanks to our resident "photographer extraordinaire", Ric Wolford, for documenting the fun with his picture-taking expertise!  Click here for the photo album.
