Everyday Leadership is a collaborative effort created to provide Treasure Valley low-income 5th and 6th grade youth with the skills and self-confidence they will need to graduate from high school and attain post-high school educations.   (140 students are participated in the 2019/20 school year).
Lobsterfest 2020 is a virtual event. Join the fun at https://lobsterfest5400.org/.  While the event will be different from previous years, the need to raise money to support organizations is greater now than ever. Here are a few examples of why Lobsterfest is so important.
At our last meeting of the 2019 / 2020 Rotary year, we heard a review of the great things Sunrise Rotary did during the year connecting the world. We also got a chance to hear what our incoming president Laura Brown has planned for 2020 / 2021 as Sunrise opens opportunities. 
Do you want a chance to help restore the elephant population within the Gorongosa National Park or plant trees in the park or support the local girls school provide an education while enjoying a great cup of coffee? Then check out this story we heard about at this weeks virtual meeting of the Boise Sunrise Rotary club. 
Most people think all we do as members of Boise Sunrise is attend meetings and do service projects. Well that isn't but a small part of what our members are up to. One of the activities, Family of Rotary, gives members, family members and friends a chance to visit interesting places, take part in events and have shared experiences within our communities. 
An annual service project for the Boise Sunrise club is delivering dictionaries to 3rd graders in our local schools. This is John's thoughts on the project.
The world today is not the same as it was when Rotary was founded in 1905. Demographics have shifted, the pace of change has accelerated, and technology has created new opportunities for connection and service. What hasn't changed is a need for the core values that define Rotary. These values are: Fellowship, Integrity, Diversity, Service and Leadership. By honoring Rotary's past and embracing the future, we can evolve and keep Rotary not only relevant, but thriving.
If these core values are a part of your core values, contact us or come visit us at a weekly meeting.  
A number of Sunrise members braved an early morning to join with other Rotarians and organizations to plant trees in the Bose foothills. Rotary International asks that each year the 1.2 million Rotarians join in the tree planting challenge. This is part of the effort!
 
Sunrise Rotarians have the unique opportunity to be the guest of CABI Congregation Ahavath Beth Israel for an evening of tour, information, friendship, and food! During the tour the movie “The Big Move” will be viewed, members of the congregation will share their knowledge about Judaism, and answer questions about tradition, and customs. After the tour the Rotarians and guests will join in a no host dinner at Luciano’s on 11 N Orchard St.
 
Ahavath Beth Israel’s building was moved in 2003 from State and 11th Streets in downtown Boise to a 5-acre campus at 11 North Latah Street. The move was done by the CM Company; which, is owned by the Sunrise Rotarian Dennis Robinson. The structure was originally built in 1896, making it the oldest synagogue still in operation West of the Mississippi river.
 
Mark you calendars for January 31st at 6pm, and plan to join us for a great evening of fun, information, and friendship!
On July 4th Boise Sunrise Rotary in partnership with the Nampa Rotary Club and the non-profit Because International delivered 294 pairs of "The Shoe That Grows" to a Girls' Education Club outside of Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique.  Each Club seeks to keep girls in school to complete a primary level education and provides the opportunity for a select few to obtain a secondary education, an all too rare occurrence in much of Mozambique.  Gorongosa National Park supports approximately 35 Girls' Clubs with a goal of expanding to 50 clubs by the end of the year.  For several of the girls, this is the first pair of shoes they have owned.  For the rest of the club these expandable shoes replace poorly made 'flip flops', providing not only a shoe that provides better protection but one which will last for up to five years as the owner’s foot continues to grow.  This successful event is another example of a lengthy list of Idaho-Gorongosa cooperative efforts … the Girls’ Education Program is managed by Larissa Sousa (red coat), big sister of Boise State sophomore Michel Sousa.
Boise Sunrise is providing to dictionaries to 3rd graders at six local elementary schools.  If you would like to help with the distribution later this fall, please contact Michael Faison.  The mission of the Dictionary Project is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. Educators see third grade as the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn, so we encourage our sponsors to give dictionaries each year to children in the third grade.
