Records fall during leawood Rotary labor day 5k 

 
 
What could be better than a stunningly sunny 70 degree early morning 5k run?  Well, how about raising a record $41,000 to help fund food pantries, scholarships and children’s assistance programs.  The Leawood Rotary Club’s 2021 Labor Day 5k was a spectacular and record breaking event with over 70% of club members participating and 386 runners.
 
 
The Leawood Rotary Club wants to thank the many supporters of our annual fund raising event and in particular the following major sponsors:  Mitchell Capital Management — $5,000; Avila University —$1,500; St. Joseph Medical Center — $1,250; and, Healient Physician Group — $1,250.
 
 
 

Leawood Rotary Annual Picnic

The Leawood Rotary Club knows how to have fun! On September 18, the club hosted its Annual Picnic at the Sharp’s Homestead!!! A big thanks to everyone who worked to make this event a total SUCCESS!  A trivial question came out of this event: Can you name the Rotarians who decided to climb onto the roof of the barn????  Sara – thanks again for the excellent photography work!  

Christmas In October

Leawood Rotarians keep making a difference!! Our Christmas in October event saw Rotarians provide a much-needed facelift for a grateful KC resident – Rita Smith. 

Fireside Chat

The Leawood Rotary hosted a “Fireside Chat” with a real fireplace – by the way, that’s Jake with a fine smoking pipe in his hand!  The event’s goal is to formally welcome and celebrate new Rotarians and get them involved in volunteer opportunities. Thank you, Chuck and Rick, for your leadership! A big thanks to our mentors and the Leawood Rotary Club for making us feel welcome.
