Burgerfest 2013

Posted by Ursula Hoch
It was a dark, dreary and very wet beginning to Burgerfest 2013.  Sunrise Rotarians pulled ticket tables and chairs further into the ticket tent. Would the monsoon like winds and rain ever stop? Gradually the skies lightened, the rain and wind stopped and the Sun came out!  A warm breeze and the people came.  Yes, another successful Burgerfest. Pictures of this year's event and our hardworking members are posted under the Photo journal tab.Image

Burgerfest 2011

Posted by Ursula Hoch
story thumbnail
Burgerfest 2011 is history.  A very warm, sunny day was enjoyed by many, many, many Burgerfest attendees. Sunrise Rotary's mission was to sell the tickets that bought food and drink for this hugh crowd of people and sell tickets we did! From 11:45 am to 11:30 pm Sunrise Rotarians manned the ticket tent. We moved the lines  quickly so there were no complaints from the public.  This event would not have run so smoothly if Marlene Gonzalez  had not put in hours and hours of her time planning, implemeting and coordinating the new ticket selling process. She even thought about us by providing cold water and pop during the day AND she gave us small breaks during the day as  long as we promised to come back and sell more tickets. A great big THANK YOU to Sunrise Rotarians and their family members for working so hard to make this event the success it was.

2011 Picnic

Posted by Ursula Hoch
story thumbnail
Sunrise's annual change of officers picnic was held at VFW Post 1419 on Friday, June 24th.   Mike Reilly was just a little concerned when our Master of Ceremony, John Rydzik, could not be found. Was it possible that Mike would serve another year as President? To the great relief of Sunrise Rotarians John was finally located at the bar with his favorite Manhattan in hand. With much pleading from the assembled Rotarians John was persuaded to perform the swearing in ceremony and now Fernando Sandoval is our 2011-2012 Rotary year President.  Mike Reilly received the Paul Harris award as our thank you for his leadership. During Mike's term Sunrise added six new members, achieved the Presidential Citation, the Light House award and initiated an international project to support  Meghan Battin's UR Uganda medical clinic. We look forward to another successful year of doing good deeds under the direction of our new president, Fernando Sandoval. Photos from the picnic are posted in the photo journal box on our website's home page.
