This year the Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club is very proud to celebrate Jim Knight's 50 years of service as the club's Secretary.  Jim has run the club for the past 50 years, sometimes in spite of the club's members.  All past, present and future members of the club owe Jim a great deal of thanks for his unwavering service in support of the club.
 
To celebrate this great accomplishment, the club hosted a special gathering on October 20, 2019.  Jim was presented with a gift from the club and a letter from Rotary International President Mark Maloney thanking Jim for his 50 years of service as club secretary.
      
 
  
 
Also, on November 1, 2019, Jim attended the District 5710 Foundation Banquet, meeting with Rotary International President Mark Maloney, who presented Jim with a pin.
  
 
In 1985, Rotary International launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative to rid the world of the scourge of the polio virus.  Since that time Rotary has raised $1.9 billion for the effort, and facilitated world wide contributions of over $8 billion.  Since that time polio cases have decreased by 99.9%.  October 24th has been designated international World Polio Day.  In support of this effort, the Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club worked to have the Unified Government issue a proclamation that October 24, 2019 is World Polio Day in Wyandotte County.

The Club also held a Pints For Polio fundraiser on October 24th.  It was held at Chicago's Bar in Kansas City, Kansas, with sponsorship of KC Bier Company.  The event raised over $5,100 for the polio eradication effort.
