On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, our club, along with the Lenexa Rotary Club, celebrated with the City of Lenexa, Kansas as they became a Purple Heart City!  As a Purple Heart City, Lenexa officially recognizes the sacrifices of the men and women who have served our country, particularly those who are Purple Heart recipients and their families.  The Purple Heart is the medal awarded to all U.S. military members who were wounded or killed in combat.  Congratulations Lenexa!  And THANK YOU to each and every service member that has served our country!
