Our guest speaker at last week's club meeting was our very own District 5710 Governor Stephanie Meyer!  Stephanie's Rotary year as District Governor began on July 1st and she's making her way around to the clubs in our District to share her vision for the 2022-2023 Rotary year. 
Stephanie began the meeting by telling us a little about herself.  She recently became a living kidney donor!  She then celebrated with 20 other living kidney donors by hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa!  
Stephanie spoke about the current state of District 5710.  Our District currently has 43 clubs with just over 2,000 club members. She talked about some of the District grant projects that clubs completed in 2021-2022 - Sleep in Heavenly Peace kids beds, shoe drive, disaster response kits, food pantry supplies, and MANY more!  Lastly, she shared what her focus is for 2022-2023 - new member engagement, existing member re-engagement, community service projects, and having more FUN at our Rotary meetings and events!
Stephanie invited us to join her for the upcoming District 5710 Annual Conference which will be held here at Lenexa City Center on Thu 9/22 - Sat 9/24.  More information about the District Conference can be found HERE or in the July District Newsletter that came out earlier this week!
