Ken Small, Governor of Rotary District 5440, spoke Oct. 6, 2015 at the regular meeting of the Cheyenne Sunrise Rotary Club at Little America. His district includes 54 Rotary clubs in Wyoming, Northern Colorado, Eastern Idaho and Western Nebraska.
                 The International Rotary theme for the year is Be a Gift to the World.  DG Ken focused on growing Rotary’s contributions to humanity. The theme is meant to put focus on all the projects that the Rotary  Club  of Cheyenne  accomplishes, both locally and internationally. Opportunities are plentiful for potential members, young and old, to help Rotary achieve its mission of “peace and understanding throughout the world,” and by bringing their passion to provide service.
“We shared some of our projects with the District Governor,” Brenda Laird, local club president said.  The Cheyenne Sunrise Rotary Club has projects at the Cheyenne Boys and Girls Club vegetable garden, Friday Food bag program, support of the Foster Grandparent's Program, and many other projects.
