Club members were on our best behavior and enjoyed our official District Governor Visit by DG Paul Heroman (from Cascade, MI).  A great visit and a great message "Imagine Rotary"

Volunteers from Sunrise Rotary of Petoskey did their part for Earth Day by doing trash pickup in three areas on Sat. April 23rd.  They cleaned their Adopt-a-Highway segment on US 131, a portion of the Little Traverse Wheelway, and a portion of Petoskey’s Bayfront Park. 

Petoskey Sunrise Rotary recently celebrated the induction of 7 new members to our club - pictured below along with the club members who recruited them are: (left to right) Bill Hanson with new member Zac LeJeune, Dave Meyer with new members Chris Parker & Hob Ingleson, Chuck Johnson with new member Tom Oelke, Carlin Smith with new member Carrie Klingelsmith, Jenny Brower with new member Lindsey Bur and Ben Slocum with new member Tyler Benson.

What does 23 bunches of bananas, 28 bags of clementine oranges, 140 pears, 210 apples, 72 bunches of green and red grapes, a few bags of mini hershey bars + Meijer Grocery + an amazing Rotary Sunrise Crew equal?    Appreciation Fruit Boxes for 650 staff & teachers in 20 area schools!  Great fun and what a great cause!
Sarah George completed her year as Rotary Sunrise President in fine fashion and did a super job guiding our active club through the COVID Pandemic year.  We so appreciate your leadership and service to the club, our community and others.  Sarah lives the "Service Above Self" motto and is an inspiration to all.  Thank you Sarah!  (Pictured with Sarah is Past Club President Carlin Smith)
