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. 
 
Please, take a few moments and discover all that our club has to offer by browsing our website.

The Nature Conservancy in Kansas

Steve Schaumburg was born in Oklahoma, went to high school at both Buhler and McPherson, traveled West for community college in Colby, and then graduated college at Wichita State. After college, his career included 8 years working in advertising agencies and more than 30 years in marketing and communications, sales, and fundraising roles within the financial services, higher education, and healthcare industries. His career took him to Oklahoma City, Sacramento, Dallas, Tulsa, and then Fort Lauderdale before making the decision to “boomerang” back to Wichita about 4 years ago to be near aging parents. Upon his return to Wichita, Steve joined The Nature Conservancy where he works with individuals, foundations, and corporations that share The Conservancy’s commitment to “protect the lands and waters on which all life depends.”

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
