"Would you like to find new ways to support your community right now,
starting today? Rotary Club of Western Johnson County member Kristin
Johnson shared an idea she borrowed from the Siouxland Chamber of
Commerce, and member Matt Wright modified it for our use.

It's kind of a Bingo game in which you simply try to complete as many of
the squares as you can. The nice thing about this is the many ideas for
how you can contribute to, or simply find ways to be involved with our
community.

Most of these are very easy - many you might have already accomplished!

In any event, please enjoy the activities. And, thank you to Kristin and
Matt for putting this together for us."

Members of the Rotary Club of Western Johnson County found a nice warm Saturday in November to walk the Clear Creek Trail and pick up trash. This trail was adopted by the club several years ago, and members enjoy keeping it cleaned up several times a year! Pictured are: Kelly Vaille, President-Elect; Dave Huston; Leslie Nelson; Jim Houvener, President; Becky Metcalf; and Matt Wright.

The latest round of Happy Bucks collected and donated by generous members bought over 100 pairs of warm socks to donate to the Shawnee City Mission.

   
 
The Rotary Club of Western Johnson County donated Happy Bucks to Shawnee Community Services for food supplies. Pictured are the club's Sargent-At-Arms Jody Adams presenting the check to Shawnee Community Services President/CEO Sylvia Terry.

The Rotary Club of Western Johnson County raised $347 for Pints for Polio through beer sales donations and a gift basket raffle at Transport Brewery in Shawnee on October 22. Nice work team! Pictured is Christie Merandino, Operations Manager for Transport, drawing Mike Metcalf's name as the lucky winner of the gift basket.
      
 
Rotary Club of Western Johnson County members met at member Marla Williams' home to compete in a club chili challenge. Winners will recreate their recipe for the Lenexa Chili Challenge in October 11-12.  Along with chili, club members also brought kids coats for donation to the Johnson County Christmas Bureau for the upcoming 2019 Holiday Shop held December 4-11, 2019. Rotary District Governor Jason Leib also dropped in our meeting for chili and conversation. Pictured: Mike McVey and his winning cornbread recipe, the spread of goodies, Jim Houvener and his winning traditional chili recipe.
 
Several members of the Rotary Club of Western Johnson County got up extra early Saturday, August 24 to volunteer with Johnson County Parks&Recreation Kid's Triathlon held at Kill Creek Park. The day started out very rainy but began to clear up by event start time. Club members were there to clap and encourage kids to complete their events. It was a fun and rewarding day helping in even a small way to make a big impact in our community's kids lives. Pictured: President Elect Kelly Vaille, President Jim Houvener and Sheila Houvener. Not pictured: Past President Kristin Johnson, Terri Johnson, Caroline Beecher, and Leslie Nelson.
This is why people should come to the Spring Fling!

What is Rotary? It is the original social network.
