What a great day to be an Rotarian.

What a great day to be a Rotarian.  We were thrilled to have so many in the house, live and on Zoom.  We celebrated the 116 Rotary Anniversary.  Can you believe it?  116 years of world wide Rotarian efforts that have changed the lives of so many.  THANK YOU Rotarians!!!

Brenda read a quote from Holger Knaack, RI President. “Every new member changes us a little bit.  That person brings new perspective, new experiences.  We need to embrace this constant renewal.  We will grow stronger as we learn from new members.”  Sunrise Rotary has welcomed several new members over this year.  We are thankful for having you join us.  Your engagement and commitment to Rotary will enhance our club.

The club voted “Yes” to sponsor a buckle for 4-H Showmanship.  RYLA will not be held this year and this is our chance to benefit young youth in our community.

The Noon Rotary Club is sponsoring a raffle for a chance to win a 2021 Ford Bronco Sport or $20,000, second place is $1,000 and third place is $500.  Tickets can be bought on line through the Cheyenne Noon Rotary Club website.

Jim outlined service projects coming up.  Our next service project will help Safe House.  Jim will put out information.  March 13th we will need volunteers for pick ups.

Jean Krause, Old West Museum, gave a wonderful presentation.  Did you know that the Old West Museum has day camps for the youth, Artist Shows, gives organized tours, is in need of volunteers to help at the museum, and is their own separate 501c3?  What a golden gem for the Cheyenne community.  Thank you Jean.

Have a great week my friends.

A great day to be a Rotarian!
It was another early morning for the Sunrise Rotary Club.  We were tickled by Mr. Earl coming to us on Zoom from Florida in a Santa beard.  If 2020 has taught us any thing it is we can gather from each coast to coast and still be a strong club.  We are missing a few faces that we wish would come join us....that is our Christmas wish.
We welcomed AG Robin Sims who dropped in to say hi!
Our speakers today were Pavel Reppe and Diane Messamore from the Rotary Club of Denver Mile High.  They presented their international project - Community Mental Health Services & Economic Development in Uganda.  
Sunrise Rotary will be “ringing the bell” again on Saturday for the Salvation Army.  If you can offer a “wrist” to help out we are looking for some help.  We will be asked to wear masks and safely distance ourselves from customers.  Please contact Brenda if you can help out.
Our next meeting will be a social hour (social distancing really) on December 22nd.  We will gather, have breakfast and just enjoy the Christmas spirit minus alcohol.  
Hugs to each of you.  Stay safe and healthy.
What a GREAT day to be a Rotarian.

An outreach portion of Rotary working on bringing fresh, clean and sanitary water to the almost 1 BILLION people around the world that go daily without clean, sanitary water. Currently they have projects going in Haiti, Malawi, and South Sudan. Anyone who is interested in joining hands with this effort, please contact Heidi. Amazing heart felt movement!

Have a safe week and stay healthy. It was wonderful to have a few missed faces peering in. Rita and Paul, we have missed you. Welcome back.  We were delighted to have Robin Sims, Assistant Governor join us on Zoom as well.

What a GREAT day to be a Rotarian!  This beautiful August morning brought many Sunrise Rotarian’s to the breakfast table.  We are currently still doing a hybrid meeting which brought several surprise guests in this a.m.  Our beloved Phil was there joining us from AZ.  He has been so missed.  AND Rita joined us today as traveling has been limited.  Our hearts were full of joy.  Those in person were thrilled to see Pat this a.m.  When you become a Rotarian you become a member of our family and everyone is so important to make up this club.  Thank you for Zooming in, dropping by and just keeping us close in heart.
Congrats to Steve and Kris Dorsey who celebrated 50 years of wedded bliss.  Daryl and Jim were celebrating new grand-babies.  Blessings always!
SATURDAY, AUGUST 29TH 5 P.M.  - 7 P.M. - Sunrise Rotary Picnic.  Lion’s Park - North Picnic Area.  Kevin will be doing a Milk Can Dinner and those joining in can bring a side.  Please let Kevin know if you can join in on the fun.
One of our newest members Kelly Wright did a presentation on the Inland Ocean Coalition.  Kelly started this chapter in 2019 and it was the 10th chapter to form.  Great information was shared on how plastic use destroys our land but major destruction to the ocean and ocean life happens, even from our inland.  Kelly started this chapter out of her devastation over plastic in the ocean and her desire to change the future of our oceans.  We in Wyoming have no ocean view BUT we are the headwater for two oceans, Pacific and Atlantic.  Do you realize that we use over 500 million straws in one day in the US?  Excellent presentation!  Thank you Kelly.
Have a great Rotarian day.

What a GREAT day to be a Rotarian -
Cheyenne Sunrise Rotary kicked off its new beginning of being a hybrid club this a.m.  Hybrid, what is hybrid doing in Rotary?  We are doing exactly what we recite in the 4 Way Test, being fair to all concerned.  We have members who want to be together, even if it is social distancing.  We have members who don’t feel comfortable at this time joining face to face but want to be part of the club through Zoom and we have members that will just read our updates because technology frustrates them and meeting in person is out for now.  The theme for this year in Rotary is “Rotary Opens Opportunities!” It is our hope that as Sunrise Rotarian’s we give opportunities for those in our club and community to join in where they can feel comfortable and participate.  We had 7 people in person this a.m.  Some had masks, some didn’t, we sat at a comfortable social distance space and we enjoyed 7 of our friends on Zoom.  The SUN did shine this a.m.
We thank each of you who showed kindness and helped as technology tried to spoil our day but we did our best and are making it possible.
Our new president Kathy gave updates and reminders;
*Order peaches now from the Noon Rotary Club
*Boys and Girls Club chance to do service this Thursday
*Club Runner new app
Thank you to Monique Hammond for the Zoom presentation on hearing loss - a silent epidemic.  
Thank you Kevin for being our technical support.  You are a blessing.
As we all know, Rotary changes lives.  Our world is better because who we are and what we do!  Have a great Rotary week.
A great Tuesday meeting learning about how some of the leaders in the Cheyenne Community are working together to move Cheyenne forward.
Tina Worthman, director of Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, speaks to the club about the numerous events and happenings within the Botanic Gardens. 
Cheyenne Sunrise Rotary Club 2018-19 President Jason Johnson was sworn in by outgoing President Roxanne Ostlund along with continuing club Secretary Kathy Claywell, Club Service Chair Kevin Guille and Treasurer Donna Anderson at the club's July 10, 2018 meeting at Little America Hotel and Resort.
President Jason noted that he had earlier outlined his goals for the year (in a story on the club website) and outlined some of the results of a survey of club members which was returned by almost half the club (a record survey return for this club and probably many others). Among those results was a unanimous choice to move the meetings from Little America to a new venue like The Egg and I restaurant near the Capitol Building, which Jason is investigating.
A club meeting at a restaurant like Egg and I could result in lowering dues paid by members because each person would be responsible for paying for their own breakfast, something now built into the dues structure. 
Heart moving day to be a Rotarian on Tuesday, June 19, as we huddled for Sunrise Rotary in the lounge at Little America we were treated to a wonderful guest speaker, Leslie O’Hashi, from Ruby’s BDT Adaptive Dance and Movement Program.  
Leslie touched our hearts with a video of the dancers and our own Kevin Guille speaking about how much dancing meant to his precious Ruby.  Parents, also in attendance, spoke about having their children in the dance program and how it has changed their lives.  They have become more confident, flexible and social to name a few bright spots.
Leslie thanked the Sunrise Rotary for their gift to help keep the children dancing and covering costs.  The clubs name is also highlighted on the Ruby’s BDT Adaptive Dance and Movement  brochure that his handed out.
When we sit back and ponder what a small club can do to change the lives of the Cheyenne community - we need to remember Ruby’s BDT Adaptive Dance and Movement Program.  We will continue to strive to make sure that we remember “service above self” brings smiles, joy and love.
