A HUGE thank you goes to Salida Sunrise Rotary member, Cliff Wurster for making our club this beautiful podium and stand for the banner.  Made during his winter break away from Colorado, Cliff hand-crafted each of these items AND gave the club the official "bell" used to start and end each meeting.  THANK YOU CLIFF!  Now we have no excuse for starting and ending our meetings on time!

 

The Salida Sunrise Rotary Club was started on August 4, 2011.  It is the second Rotary Club in Salida, Colorado making the total number of Rotarians in our community of over 100!  We focus on service to local youth, the environment and international service.

Our club meets weekly on Wednesday mornings.  We gather over an excellent buffet breakfast from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at The Bounty Restaurant, 413 West Highway 50, Salida, Colorado.  Everyone is welcome; you do not need to make a reservation.  If you have questions, feel free to call the current Club President or Club Membership Chair (See Home Page for contacts).

In addition to the Four Way Test we all "Think Say and Do" ... we know how to have fun! Every year we participate in the Salvation Army Bell Ringing and our members love it! We also participate in other Community Service Projects like Habitat for Humanity, Junior Achievement, the School Garden, Trout Unlimited Projects, and kids Friday Programs. This year we we are also adding a new Community Service Project called Imagination Library which brings books to local children from the ages of new born to five years of age (more information to come). 

We raise funds for these projects as well as Scholarships for college-bound students and Community Grants to non-profit organizations through our very successful Home and Garden Show (held in April each year), Coffee Sales. Additionally we have helped Salida South's Search & Rescue raise funds for many needed supplies.

Rotary International was the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.

 

 

Congratulations go to the recipients of the Salida Sunrise Rotary 2016 Winter Semester Scholarships! In the picture (left to right) are Julie Richardson, Scholarship Chairman and the recipients Michaela Medrano, Jamie Treat, Claire Zwaan, Camille Zwaan.
 
 
 
 
It's a wrap folks! The 2016 Chaffee Home and Garden was a huge success even with 2 feet of snow. Steve Wyatt (Chaffee Country Fairgrounds Manager) and Susan Roser (Salida Sunrise Rotary) lock the doors after the final cleanup. A HUGE thanks goes to Steve Wyatt, who worked countless hours often starting at 5:30 in the morning making sure everything was in great shape for the vendors and the show participants. THANKS STEVE YOU DID AN AWESOME JOB!!!!!!
