This is a community event where all 4th grade students in Shawnee County are invited to spend a day learning about the importance of water to life and move through various stations learning about the properties of water, the value of good clean potable water and the water cycle.  We need at least 8 Rotarians to help work our two stations.  Students visit our stations “The Incredible Journey” and play a game about the water cycle.  Please email or talk to Marie Pyko if you are available for a two hour shift.  mpyko@tscpl.org  or 580-4560

WOW! Another successful Rotary Career Days completed!  Downtown Topeka Rotary supported a three day event for all USD 501 seventh graders touring Washburn Technical Institute.  We were able to give an introduction to the 4-Way Test to almost 1,000 youth.

We made a difference in some lives as we helped plant a seed of possibility for many youth as they realize a future path they might be able to take.  It was a pleasure working on a partnership with USD 501 and Washburn Tech!
