KANSAS CITY, KAN. ---- The Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club participated in 27th Greater Kansas City Day on April 2nd of this year.

The club has participated in every Greater Kansas City Day since its inception in 1988.  Greater Kansas City Day sees Rotarians and other volunteers selling special editions of the Kansas City Star on street corners around the metro, always coinciding with the Royal’s home opener.

 The project raises money for the Rotary Youth Camp and other children’s charities.

Funds raised by Rotarians of the Kansas City, Kansas Rotary Club this year were split between Associated Youth Service (AYS) and the Boy Scouts.

At the July 1st luncheon meeting of the club, a check for $417.37 was presented to Debra Terrell McKenzie of AYS.  A check will be presented to the Boy Scouts at a future meeting.
