Rotary Sunrise New President Elect
Cayman Sunrise New President Elect
              Jerrell Garner
At their regular meeting July 26, The Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Sunrise chose Jerrell Garner for their President Elect. He has these words to share:
I would like to say I am humbled and honored  as the newly elected President elect . My heart is in serving others above self, this has been my motto long before I ever joined Rotary. Anyone who knows me will say that about me. In my year I want  to do more serving our brothers and sisters on our island as well continue to serve abroad in our other projects. My heart is with our youth they are our future.

Rotary Sunrise Gives $30,000 to SNAP
    President Dawn Cummings presents $30,000 cheque
         to SNAP representative, Michael Myles

After four years of planning, SNAP (Stop Now And Plan) was finally launched June 20th. Hope Academy provided the space for the nine day training. Trainers Matt Bury and Desiree Phillips from Canada came to train the trainers here in Cayman. Teacher Judith Seymour thanked Cayman Sunrise, who gave them a $30,000 U.S. grant for the project, and said that without Rotary Sunrise the training would never had happened. 

SNAP is an early intervention study that is an evidence based method for crime prevention among youth under twelve years and their families. The successful program has been in Canada for twenty-five years.

Charter Night 2017
         Charter Night 2017
More than sixty Rotarians and guests charged the beach at Rum Point to celebrate Rotary Sunrise's fifteenth anniversary of its charter. They came by land, and by sea and dined on fine barbecue fare.
They Came They Stomped They Tasted
The second annual grape stomp, hosted by DMS Broadcasting and Tortuga Rum Company had teams stomping for their favourite charity. Spectators, family and friends were there to support their teams.
 Rotary Sunrise once again made it almost to the finals, but unfortunately were beaten out by team Raisin' Hell, who were also stomping for Feed Our Future! 
Best news: our charity will still receive much needed funding.
They Walked in her Shoes
On Wednesday 8th March, the Cayman Islands Crisis Center held its fundraising event, "A Walk in Her Shoes". Rotary Sunrise put forward a wonderful team of men to raise money and walk for this worthy organization's fundraiser. CICC reports that around 75 men gave memorable moments of laughter to a crowd of over five hundred at Camana Bay. Some of our fine gentlemen who walked are pictured here. More importantly, our guys raised over $2,000 towards this cause. Add this to the $25,000 cheque Sunrise gave to the Crisis Center on March 8th, towards Protection Order Enforcement for women. 
Livia Siqueira Lopes from the Crisis Center accepts a cheque for $25,000 from Director Stacy Parke

Hurricane Matthew Arrives. Water Filters Save Lives
      Hurricane Matthew Arrives
       Water Filters Save Lives
Our Rotary Club of Cayman Sunrise sent eleven Sawyer Water Filters to Haiti and they arrived in the nick of time. Hundreds of people, young and old will have access to clean drinking water after Hurricane Matthew has passed.
We received the following email, sent hours before their Internet failed as the storm approached:
Thank you and the members of your club for helping us provide clean water to ... 5 elementary schools, 4 orphanages and 2 old peoples’ homes. The participants were very appreciative and asked us to thank your club for having made this project possible. They were touched to have been chosen to receive the filter.
I hope this email can be sent since Hurricane Matthew has sent rain already and we are praying it will not hit too hard.
