1953-1954President Wayne Kirch
Under the presidency of Wayne Kirch, 1953-54, the well remembered but now sadly missed inter-city program with the Vernon, California club was begun. Many memorable meetings were held both in Las Vegas and Vernon, and for many years it was a highlight of the Rotary year. The first District Conference of Rotary was held in Las Vegas during Kirch’s term. The Rotary Club also gave great impetus to get the Nevada Southern University, now the University of Nevada Las Vegas, established in Las Vegas.
