This Thursday, August 16, Shawnee Mission Rotary will be out and about at the Mission Market! The market, at 5635 Johnson Drive, is open each Thursday from 4:30-8:00 p.m. The Rotary club will have a tent this week - sharing information about the club, Rotary International, and about the pancake breakfast at the Sunflower Festival on Saturday, August 25. Please stop by, even if you haven't signed up for a shift to help. It will be a fun evening. 
 
The pancake trailer and grill will be making a test run at the market on August 16 as a warm-up for the Sunflower Festival. New this year as a test: pancakes and sausage on a stick! We're going to see how they go over, and if they're a hit, offer them at the festival as well.
 
The Sign-up for the Sunflower Festival on August 25 still has some openings. Check it out and sign up here.
Dear Rotarians:
District 5710 Rotarians are awesome! 
In March 2018, we announced a fundraiser in the celebration of “30 Years of Women in Rotary” as part of the 2018 Rotary District Conference/Assembly. Our goal was to raise $5710 for District 5710 to provide hygiene kits to women in disaster and under-served areas. Contributions were to made to Heart to Heart International.  
Thanks to Rotarians in District 5710, we surpassed our goal and successfully raised $7941.10. This is huge!! Thank you to everyone who contributed to the fundraising drive. Your generosity is appreciated! Our kits will be sent to Malawi, SE Africa.
At the District Conference/Assembly, we were honored to have Jim Mitchum, CEO, and two founders from Heart to Heart accept a symbolic check for our district contributions.
The final campaign results would not have been possible without the support of all Rotarians in the entire district. Together we can do great things!!
In honor and in celebration of the 30 Years of Women in Rotary fundraising campaign, all contributions are greatly appreciated. The following clubs sent in “group” contributions of $50 or more from fundraisers and “pass the hat” events.  
Yours in Rotary,
Blanche Parks, DGE

Rotary District 5710 Conference is Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28!
 
Registration is now open. You can pick and choose from what you do over the two days. Friday is great information on Rotary, and this year, there will be a special presentation celebrating 30 years of women in Rotary and key note speaker Frank White. There is a banquet Friday evening with some mystery entertainment! There's also a service project each day. Saturday is a celebration of the past year out at the Community America Ballpark with a service project and Rotary Olympics!
 
The Shawnee Mission Rotary Club board has decided to reimburse the conference registration for any member who has never attended a conference. We want to show you how meaningful Rotary outside the walls of our own club can be!
 
Please consider attending part of the conference. Registration is available online.
