Eric Atkinson, Newest Paul Harris Fellow 

Congratulations Eric.  You have joined an elite group of Rotarians that want to
make a difference in the world and their community.
Saturday, a dreary gray day in Menomonie, a group of about 10 Sunrise Rotarians came to Winterhaven Homeless Shelter.  Buckets, brooms and mops in hand they split up to clean all three levels of the shelter! 
Winterhaven Residence is a Stepping Stones house used in the winter months to offer shelter to homeless families and individuals from November-April.  We started early with the coffee ready and brownies/rolls 
first thing we see in the kitchen.  Diane, Jim P. and Josh are busy cleaning floors, walls and bathroom upstairs till shiney bright.  Joan, Tom and Mike are taking the main floor, kitchen and windows to task.  Kaye, Jim K. are
hard at work vacuuming and cleaning the basement apartment.  Joan did a great WOW job cleaning the stove,oven and refrigerator. Tom and Mike helped repair the combination window problem, so now the downstairs 
will stay warm.  Thanks to all, a JOB WELL DONE Rotarians, Service above Self!  See ya next year, same time.

KIDS AGAINST HUNGER Packing Event!!!!!
The three ELCA Lutheran Churches in Menomonie held a packing event.   Over 100 volunteers from Christ Lutheran, Our Saviors, and Peace Lutheran church packed 19,000 meals in three hours on September 17th. Volunteers of all ages did the packing and they discovered that the majority of the meals will stay in the Dunn County area.  Great job by all.  
Kaye Krave on Paul Harris Number 4
Kaye has been a Rotarian for 20 years and has just completed her second stint
as President of the Menomonie Sunrise Rotary Club.  Great Job Kaye!!!!
Our newest member Josh Gibson! He brings a lot of new ideas and energy to our Sunrise Rotary family.  
We are excited to have you join us in service and get to know you better!
Kids Against Hunger (KAH) had a successful packing event at Regis High School January 31st.  Regis students packed 30,000 meals from 8am-2:30 pm and had a great time together in the process.
Menomonie and Chippewa Valley After Hours clubs are hosting an event for KAH on February 22, 2017 at the Stout Ale House.  We are hoping to recruit teams to pack meals that day, but also to encourage them to join one of our Rotary Clubs.  Our members need to ask themselves who would make good Rotary members and sign them up for the packing event!  It is a great way to introduce friends and co-workers to the great things Rotary does for our community and world.
We are excited to have Jeremy Untz and Robert Rosendahl as new Sunrise Rotary Members.
Give them a warm Rotary welcome in 2017!
Caddie Woodlawn Project.......
The Menomonie Sunrise Rotary Club along with Friends of Caddie Woodlawn, through a grant from the Community Foundation of Dunn County is in the process of repairing, painting, and generally providing a full clean up of the Caddie Woodlawn Historical Park south of Menomonie.  The Project is being led by Barb Anderson and is expected to be completed in August of 2016.   Make sure to stop by and take a look and check out the historical aspects of the site.
The Menomonie Sunrise Rotary Club was chartered in 1994.   We are a 501c4 organization that looks for ways to do good in the community and world we live in.   We currently have 28 members and are very active in the community in a variety of ways.  We worked on major projects such as a night vision system for the Fire Department such that they can see if someone is in a burning building before they enter.    The Sunrise Rotary Club also outfitted the Dunn County Sheriffs' cars with the first AEDs (defibulators) carried in the patrol units.   We have refurbished the Caddie Woodlawn site south of Menomonie with new siding and many volunteer hours, and lots of paint.
Our accomplishments continue to grow as we are now a full partner with the Noon Rotary Club of Menomonie in a Kids Against Hunger campaign.
