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.

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.
