Mission Statement
Missoula Sunrise Rotary developed a Mission Statement that we are proud to share:
Missoula Sunrise Rotary actively supports youth at risk while embracing the Rotary International seven areas of focus: promoting peace; fighting disease; providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene; saving mothers and children; supporting education; growing local economies and supporting the environment.
 
2020 Fall Dictionary Project
Even though we cannot personally present our Student Dictionary to the 3rd grade classes this year, we still came thru!    Jim Clark took on the coordination of ordering books; getting names of teachers and students, and doing a video on the school district's web site.    Almost 700 books are being distributed to the schools this week-with Rotarians entering names, attaching the 4 Way Test Sticker, and dropping off at assigned schools.  Bravo!

2020 Pumpkin Carving with the Gallagher and Sunrise Houses.    Sandy's Bollom's barn was decked out in lights, streamers, hay bales, and pumpkins.    The kids and Rotarians had a great time gooping out pumpkin guts and carving scary faces.   
The smore's, hot dogs, and apple cider were devoured by our little gobblins and later there was a social gathering of the volunteers at Sandy's beautiful home.   I think it was a successful event!
Waterton-Glacier International  Peace Park
In September-every year except this year-Rotarians from around the world gather to shake hands across the Montana/Alberta border and vow to never take up arms against the other.   This year the event will be via zoom.    The two hour seminar will show case the Superintendents of Glacier and Waterton giving their annual State of the Park Addresses.  And at the end of the program is the heartfelt  vow for peace.   

Peace Pledge - Ed Handl

"In the name of all we hold sacred, we will not take up arms against each other. We will work for peace, maintain liberty, strive for freedom and demand equal opportunities for all. May the long existing peace between our nations stimulate other peoples to follow this example."

Annual Hiawatha Bike Ride with Missoula Partnership for Youth Kids
Last Saturday was a beautiful day to bike the Hiawatha Trail.   No smoke-blue skies and NEW BIKES for the kids.   Thanks to the Missoula Rotary foundation and individual Sunrise Rotary members, so each child could have a new bike.   You will remember that these bikes were part of the July project where 200+ bikes were assembled and delivered to children on Montana Reservations.    Thank you also to our Rotarian, Joe Hertig, for heading up this special day
