This video shows just a part of what the 44 Rotary clubs in Eastern Kansas have done to help their communities this Rotary year. There are over 32,000 Rotary clubs around the world doing similar things. We'd love to have you join us.  Join the Downtown Topeka Rotary Club at a future meeting.  Check announcement in this section for location.  Always at noon on Thursdays!
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.
If you missed the meeting on October 15th, here is the PDF of the PowerPoint Rehan Reza and Linda Aziz presented on our club's Global Grant in Bangladesh - CLICK HERE.  This is a great presentation that shows how the contributions you make to the Rotary Foundation can be matched by the District and Rotary International to make a great impact on the lives of many people.
