District 5710

WELCOME

We are Eastern Kansas Rotary District 5710. Our District is comprised of 43 clubs in Eastern Kansas, with over 2100 members. 

August is Membership Month, which means it’s time to celebrate your Rotary club, your members, and the good you do in your community and around the world.

There are many ways to join in the celebration, but here are a few activities to get you started:

  • Say it loud, say it proud! Let everyone in your social network know that you are a proud member by changing your Twitter and Facebook profile to the I’m a Proud MemberI’m a Proud Rotaractor, or I’m a Proud Interactor graphic. Copy and save the graphic as your profile picture for August.
  • Exchange ideas. Do you have successful membership strategies that have worked well in your community? Share them on the Membership Best Practices Discussion Group.
  • We Are Rotary. Using the hashtag #WeAreRotary, post photos to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Vine of your club members at work in your community or abroad to show how Rotary makes a positive impact in the world.
  • Making a difference. Rotary clubs are known for the high-impact service projects they undertake locally and globally. Share stories about your service projects and how they improve lives on Rotary Showcase. Be sure to follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to see what Rotary members around the world are doing to celebrate Membership Month.
  • What does Rotary mean to you? Rotary members have pushed polio to the brink of eradication, delivered clean water to those in need, improved their local communities, provided scholarships to the next generation of peacemakers, and continued to do good in the world.

Rotary District 5710 has received a $25,000 Disaster Response grant from The Rotary Foundation to focus on individuals in the Topeka community who are experiencing mental health issues and who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Individuals affected by mental illness are struggling with a variety of issues including loss of job or steady income, food insecurity and an increase in mental health symptoms due to loneliness, isolation and fear. Because of the pandemic situation, agencies normally serving this special population within our community are being inundated with requests for special assistance during this time, while focusing on protecting consumers and staff from the pandemic.
 
The Topeka South Rotary Club members are coming together during this critical time and will be purchasing emergency food boxes for consumers and protective personal equipment for the four primary agencies serving persons with mental illness in Shawnee County, including: Valeo Behavioral Health Care, Family Service and Guidance Center, Breakthrough House, and the Sunshine Connection. These agencies serve in excess of 15,000 individuals on an annual basis.
