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.

Club Visioning

Last Fall, Colby Reynolds, Club President, and Ed Frey, President-Elect,  presented information to the board about participating in a  Club Vision Facilitation with a goal to create excitement and more participation in our club. On March 5, a group of 15 of our members, representing our past, current, and future leaders, met for a 4-hour Visioning session with Rotary Facilitators to develop goals with an action plan under a 3-year Master Plan.

About Club Visioning…

Visioning is the foundation of a successful club, bringing its members together towards building…

  • Continuity of leadership
  • Consistency in programing
  • Consensus towards purpose and action.

The visioning process allows the club to develop a strong path toward the future providing a road map that is easy for leaders and members to understand and serves as a foundational piece for any club that wants to grow and become more effective. This step becomes the Vision to Success.

David Weber Extra Effort Awards 
 
Rotary Club of West Wichita works with teachers at Lawrence Elementary and Benton Elementary to recognize students for their extra effort. Students are given a small plaque and teachers explain the traits that helped them earn the award. This program was started in the late 1980s by the late David Weber, a music educator at Friends University and club member.
Repainting a US map at Lawrence Elementary
These oversized maps of the United States are on dozens of our playgrounds throughout our district. This map at Lawrence Elementary was one of our first and needed a fresh paint job. Teachers use these maps for a variety of educational purposes and the maps are an example of Rotary's ongoing community service.
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
