Moe Cougher with Lenexa Rotary and Olathe Noon Rotary set up another great packaging event with Heart to Heart International. Our District 5710 and Clubs already donated over $38,000. This is the second Rotary hands on packaging event. As with our last event we had great participation from Overland Park, Ambassadors of West Kansas City and Western Johnson County. We also had Lenexa's in-bound exchange student Elvira Gonzalez Acosta from Canary Islands and members of the Lenexa Community Corps.
A HUGE THANK YOU to all the Lenexa Rotarians who helped assemble Hygiene Kits for Heart to Heart International last Thursday.  The Hygiene Kits were sent to Texas to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.  Also thank you to Rotarians from Shawnee, Shawnee Mission, and other clubs in Rotary District 5710,  PLUS members of our Interact Club from Shawnee Mission Northwest High School.
Additionally, District Governor Adam Ehlert asked each club to donate at least $5.00 per member to go towards relief efforts.  To date Lenexa Rotary has collected $1,114.00!  We are still collecting money.  If you want to donate, please give your money to Phil Hammond or Alan Kruckmyer.  THANK YOU LENEXA ROTARIANS!!
A BIG THANK YOU to  J.C. Burcham for all of her hard work in bringing the Azerbaijan delegation to Kansas.  She organized a wonderful week for the visitors and it was good to hear of their experience at our meeting last Friday.
Here are a few more photos from their week.
Please join us in congratulating fellow member Jason Leib in his recent appointment as District Governor Nominee Designate (DGND) for the 2019/2020 Rotary year! (For those not as familiar with Rotary, this means Jason will be District Governor for our district--District 5710--for the 2019-2020 Rotary year. Wow!)
Jason has expressed that he feels honored and humbled by this appointment. “I appreciate the club’s continuing support and encouragement in pursuing the role of District Governor since my first nomination in 2012. I hope to help all of the clubs in our district be as active and generous as we are!”
It's worth noting we have a couple past District Governors (PDG) in our club: Charlie Smith and Greg Peterson.
On Jan. 17, 2017, Lenexa Mayor Mike Boehm presented a certificate of recognition to the Lenexa Rotary Club on behalf of its 50 years of service to the community and the world. A handful of club members, including Pat Thomas, Phil Hammond, Jason Leib, Milton Jeffries, and Jerry Harper were in attendance. Charter president Charles Smith and current president JC Burcham accepted the award. Charlie shared some history about the club and its role in the community.
