Lonnie Joseph Williams, 70, passed away with his family by his side on June 30, 2017, at Midland Hospice. Lonnie was born on November 10, 1946 in Taft, Oklahoma.  His final resting place will be Leavenworth National Cemetery.  Lonnie joined our club in 2014 and immediately became a Paul Harris Fellow for his generous contributions to Rotary International.  He was passionate about International Service.  Lonnie was a gentle, quiet leader and will be greatly missed.
Former member, Craig Klein, was visiting a foster child in Honduras and he sent this message to us.  Craig now lives in southern Ohio.
 
"Hello my friend.  As I was hiking about Honduras, I was in the town of Santa Rosa in the NW part of the country.  I looked through a fence and saw the Rotary wheel in concrete in a public park.  It measured about 15 feet in diameter and was two feet tall at the highest point."

District 5710 is thrilled to announce that the Nominating Committee for Rotary International Director in Zone 27 has selected our Rotarian, Larry Dimmitt, of the Rotary Club of Topeka Downtown, to be an RI Director in 2018-20.
 
This is a tremendous honor for Larry, and most fitting, given his service and commitment over many years to Rotary International, The Rotary Foundation, our zone, district and his club.  Larry is currently serving as the Regional Rotary Foundation Coordinator for Zone 27, he is a Past District Governor for District 5710, and he has served in many other roles throughout his Rotary career.  
 
Many of you know and have worked with Larry through his years of very active service in our district.  His selection to serve on the RI Board of Directors is an acknowledgement of his dedication to Rotary and his ability to further the purposes and objectives of Rotary International and its extension throughout the world.  Please join us in congratulating Larry, and showing him how much we in his home district particularly appreciate his service.
