Welcome!
Thank you for visiting our West Wichita Rotary Club Website! Rotary is a diverse group of local businessmen and women dedicated to promoting Service above Self throughout the community and world.
 
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.

Making Strategy Sexy Again
Making Strategy Sexy Again

Most leaders have a clear vision of where they want their organizations to go.  But getting there is often tedious and dispiriting, leading to unmotivated employees and underwhelming results.  But it doesn’t have to be this way.  Strategy can have more life than a binder or a Gantt chart.  Brandon will explore how strategy can be profoundly invigorating, calling out the best in people, and producing sustained hope, purpose, and growth.  

Brandon Gaide leads a strategy and innovation consultancy called Sevenfold, in partnership with Hutton.  He helps organizations transform and grow by unlocking employees’ genius and creativity.  He has consulted for a wide variety of industries, from manufacturing to banking to non-profits.  A former ordained Presbyterian pastor, he holds an MBA from Indiana University, an MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a BA from the University of Texas.  He has lived in five foreign countries, learned and forgotten four languages, has two daughters, two Vizslas, and one wife.  Brandon and his family have lived in Wichita for four years.

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.
