Welcome!

Chartered in 1987, our club provides each member with a unique opportunity to serve others.  We support our community with projects throughout the year, including building and delivering bookshelves for several west Wichita Title 1 schools, partnering with local schools to identify families in need of groceries, providing gifts for needy families at Christmas and ringing bells for the Salvation Army.  Our club also supports international goodwill through the Open World Program and Rotary Inter-country Teacher Exchange (RITE). We have many opportunities to give back to our community and world that you will find very rewarding.

Victory Pyrotechnics

A dynamic duo, Cody Hanna and Kennady King, are the masterminds behind Victory Pyrotechnics and Special Effects. Although they both wear many hats, they serve Victory in unique ways that have contributed to its success today.

From Clearwater, Kansas, Cody Hanna founded Victory Pyrotechnics in the winter of 2017. It fulfilled one of his life-long dreams to bring extravagant and immersive fireworks displays to the Midwest. Victory Pyrotechnics sets itself apart by creating shows that combine pyrotechnics effects, special effects, music, and lighting to create an experience and tell a story. Cody, a graduate of Kansas State University, serves as the visionary for all that we do. He is seated as the Director of Business Development, where he walks clients through our Ultimate Client Experience and leads the design and operations teams to execute top-notch shows across the state of Kansas.

After a class in college and an immediate friendship (or alliance, depends on how you look at it), Kennady King joined Cody’s efforts to create a brand and a customer experience in the entertainment and, specifically, the pyrotechnics space.

After graduating from Kansas State University, Kennady joined Victory as the lead integrator. She works as the Marketing and Events Coordinator, where she maintains Victory’s strong brand position, plays a hand in all marketing efforts, and assists with people operations.

We are so excited to be speaking with all of you and introducing you to our unique business and the ways we strive to innovate in our space!

Dodgeball Tournament Raises Funds for Interact
Rotarians field teams for a Saturday morning tournament. Entry fees support Rotary's youth program called Interact. Those funds underwrite the travel of local Interact members. In this case students will travel to Panama. There there learn the culture and provide some sweat equity maintaining local schools.
Rotarians deliver gift cards to local teachers
Elementary teachers at Benton and Lawrence start the school year with more cash to buy school supplies thanks to a grant from the West Rotary Foundation. Watch the video of teachers getting the gifts
