What's New At Rotary Sunrise
We hosted our Rotary district governor on a beautiful August morning with our sister club, Rotary Club of Chatham. Michael Angelo Caruso gave a fabulous presentation on professional development. 
Thanks for a great morning! It was a full house. 

Blame it on Rio! We got together for a social event the other night. It was a lot of fun having a night to relax all together. Here are just a few pictures.
Our two outbound exchange students, Jordan and Cole. Going to Japan and Brazil. Best of luck, guys!
Baby Rotarians!!

Rotary Sunrise is committed to raising $2650 US to the " End Polio Now " campaign. We are so close! Every US dollar we raise the Bill and Melissa Gates Foundation will double! When we donate $1, they donate $2! A great time to give when $1 turns into $3!

Rotarian, Brandon Stuart, presents Dave Shambrook from the Hospice foundation with a cheque for $10,000.
This is the final cheque for our $40000 commitment to the Hospice.
Thank-you to the Parkfield restaurant for hosting our breakfast this morning.
Thanks to all Sunrise Rotarians for your help undertaking this project!

Congratulations to Sunrise Rotarian, Blake Vince, on receiving the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence. The technique he uses helps him with one of the goals of his farming business: leaving the land in a better shape than it was than when he acquired it.
Read about his accomplishments in this Chatham Daily News Article.

Join us as we welcome our District Governor, Michael Angelo Caruso. He will be sharing with Rotary and non-Rotary members alike. Feel free to join us for this event. Open to the public. Contact to register.

Nicole Holder from Canadian Diabetes Association made a visit and shared the latest information on Healthy Lifestyles to prevent Diabetes.

Our Sunrise Rotary club received a appreciation plaque for our contribution to the Terry Fox run. We look forward to participating again this year. 

Rotary International President John F. Germ chose Rotary Serving Humanity as his theme for 2016-17. Noting Rotary’s unique ability to bring together committed professionals to achieve remarkable goals, Germ believes that “now is the time to capitalize on our success: as we complete the eradication of polio, and catapult Rotary forward to be an even greater force for good in the world.”
We are in an exciting year for Rotary as our club and others join together to serve humanity.

Thanks to councillor Darrin Canniff who spoke with us about Positivity Day in CK!
We were treated to a visit from Captain Positive and learned about what we can do to keep our municipality a positive place. Celebrate world positivity day on September 13th and visit the positivity day website to see how you can be a part of the action!
