Making the World a Better Place...that is the theme of Blanche Parks' 2018-2019 term as District Governor of Rotary District 5710. Blanche visited our club meeting, and enthusiastically proposed that Rotary is an organization with a better purpose. Blanche is encouraging the Rotary Clubs in the district to be bold and innovative. There is a new family club being formed as part of the Downtown Topeka Club this year. Blanche has formed an Ambassadors Club of couples that meets once a month. 
 
​​​​​​​Rotary International has 1.2 million members among 33,000 clubs in 200 countries. District 5710 has 2,400 members among 45 clubs.
