Home Page News

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Reno Sunrise! This website contains information for members and visitors on our club's activities, events, meetings and programs. It's where you can find our club member directory, eBulletins, where and when other local Rotary clubs meet, and links to our District website and Rotary International. 

We meet each Friday for breakfast, fellowship, club business, and an informative and interesting presentation from a guest speaker. We have 50 plus members with a variety of professional and managerial backgrounds. Founded in 1989, our club was the first in northern Nevada to charter with women and paved the way for the first female President in our District. Reno Sunrise, in turn, has in recent years chartered the Reno Rotaract club (18-30 year olds) and a new generations club now known as the Rotary Club of Reno, Midtown. We are community and youth service oriented, and give our time and dollars to make a positive impact in the community and the world.

A partial list of our service activities includes volunteer and/or financial support for the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful, Rotary Youth Exchange, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, the Middle School Leadership Experience, Rotary speech and music contests, middle school career coaching, Rotary Group Study Exchange, and the Rotary International End Polio Now program. We also are Partners in Education with Virginia Palmer Elementary School in the economically challenged Sun Valley area, and help with a number of programs including Read to Succeed, Back to School Shopping, Happy Feet athletic shoes, holiday season Angel Tree, Challenger Learning Center science program, and a number of playground enhancement projects.

Our major fund raiser is Edible Pedal 100 TM held each September in the Washoe Valley that consists of 10, 50 and 100 bicycle rides. This past year we had over 1,000 riders from Nevada and California. A portion of the net proceeds is contributed to Urban Roots Garden Classrooms, culinary scholarships at a number of local high schools, and to various other event support organizations. 

We have a lively and dedicated membership, and are always looking for new qualified members to help us make a difference and have fun. Visitors to meetings are always welcome, so if you're up and about early on a Friday morning please stop by.

Intense summer program gives Israeli and Palestinian teens new perspectives
Students from Israel and Palestine sat together at a local art studio in Encinitas, California, USA, one day last summer, drawing portraits of one another and learning how to live in peace. Kelly Mellos, an organizer of the project from the Rotary Club of Encinitas Coastal, says that drawing someone who is sitting so close helps break down social barriers between the young people. "They see how many similarities there are between them," she says. "And they begin to understand we are all just people. There is a respect and trust that builds." The students were participating in a program run by...
Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
Alumni recognized for expanding mental health services and supporting Rotary’s work
Dr. Geetha Jayaram has dedicated her life to helping people in her native India and the United States overcome the torment of severe depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and other mental illnesses. Jayaram is a psychiatrist and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. Her work expanding access to mental health services is much needed. Depression affects at least 350 million people and is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. "In India, there is no mental...
