What We're Up To
Membership Director Dick French inducted 4 new members to our club. Welcome Clay, Tammy, Justin and Carl. 
President Elect Tanya Ayre presents a club allocation cheque for $1000.00 to members of the Grande Prairie Composite High School Interact Club
Dick French presents his member allocation of $1000.00 to Peter Kim with the Salvation Army
Rotary Club of Grande Prairie Sunrise members Janice Chomik (left) and Tanya Ayre (right) each present a cheque in the amount of $1000.00 to Dawn Miller with the Grande Prairie Hospital Foundation in support of the Therapeutic Clown program. Members of the Sunrise Rotary club were each allocated $1000.00 to donate to a charity of their choice and both Janice and Tanya chose the Therapeutic Clown program. Tanya’s daughter was in the hospital at a young age and Butterfly helped with making her time there less stressful. Janice chose the program because her 9 year old great niece Harper has donated on her own to the program, once when she heard they were in need of stuffed animals (by making and selling bracelets) and again when she heard the program was in need of dolls and hot wheels (by baking cookies and having a bake sale). Janice and Tanya are very pleased to support this important program at our local hospital.
Thank you to Erica and Cara with the Grande Prairie Pride Society for presenting at our meeting this morning and sharing all things Pride with our members. We love hearing about the great work that you are doing in our community.
Our first fireside since pre-COVID. A small but dedicated crew turned out.
Our outgoing exchange student, Lara, received a very warm welcome from her new family in France. So, her French journey begins.......
Members joined in Swan City's Friend's of Rotary golf tournament. Was a great day with great people. Colby filled our ears with good music and superb driving skills. 
A warm welcome to our incoming Austrian exchange student, Lorena. A few of us were at the airport to greet her. We are thrilled to have her. And yes, Cherene is with us!
At our meeting this morning President Nevada accepted a banner from our in bound exchange student Lorena and presented a banner to our outgoing exchange student Lara. Our club is very proud to be part of the Rotary exchange program.
A quick draw between our most senior member and our youngest member. Who do you think won?
A few of our dedicated members made it out to paint the Minor Ball diamonds on Sunday. A job well done to an up and coming Rotarian. This is her second time contributing her painting skills and she managed to leave with her bike intact. 
President Nevada presented outgoing President Jeff with his gavel. Thank you for your leadership Jeff.
At our meeting this morning we were joined by Rhonda and Linda Side. Our club presented them a donation of $2000.00 for Grande Prairie Reading University which is wrapping up this Friday. This program was established in 2009 and is intended to increase the literacy skills of children in grade 3. One of Rotary International causes is Education so we are very supportive of this program in our community
Thank you to Jeff, Maryanne and the Keddie's staff for a tasty pancake breakfast!
Congrats to Colby Dunham for receiving this year's Jody Evans Memorial Award. In honor of Jody, this award recognizes a member who in the year shared in her spirit of Rotary, community, and fellowship.
At our meeting last week, President Jeff and our Outbound Exchange Chair Kenzo, presented our outbound Exchange student Lara Ball with her red exchange blazer. Lara will be leaving in August to France for her Rotary exchange year and our inbound student Lorena from Austria will be arriving for her Exchange year.
Congratulations to Sunrise, After Five, Swan City, and Grande Prairie Rotary Clubs for receiving this year's District Governor's award.
