Rotary Club Changes, Events, Etc.

Posted on August 24, 2021 by under Community.    

The Andover Rotary Club board put me in charge of putting together our programs this cycle so I hit up some friends to come visit and present to the club. Matt Mayfield came out last month to talk about the Senior Services of Wichita.


I’ve also hit up some old friends from the Twitter days to come and speak. Last month we had Suzanne Perez (KMUW) talk about the annual #ReadICT reading challenge and then last week we had Denise Neil (Wichita Eagle) come out to promote her new book “Classic Restaurants of Wichita.”


One of the major changes for this year is relocating our meetings to Butler Community College. For as long as I’ve been a member (about seven years), we’ve always met at Terradyne Country Club. I was told that the meetings have always been there since the club’s founding in 2003. Anyway, there were several factors that led to the move and it took months of deliberation. However, as of August 2021 and, for the foreseeable future, our meetings are officially at Butler Community College. I made all the updates I could make to both our club website and also our Facebook page. It’s not perfect but all references to meetings at Terradyne Country Club have been, for the most part, removed.

Despite this major change, some things remain the same. Haus of Brews will still be our premier fundraising event and it’s back this year! We couldn’t have it last year because of the pandemic and everyone missed it. This year we are having the event on September 25 at Treescapes (same venue as always). I feel like everyone is excited and ready to have this event again. In fact, we have already sold a few tickets. Early bird tickets are available online for $35 through September 10. After September 10, tickets will be $50 each. If you buy yours online, put “Ching Brubaker” in the member referral box so I get credit for the ticket sale. Hope to see you all then!
