The Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise is one of more than 34,000 clubs worldwide; the 1.2 million members represent a wide range of business, professional and community leaders. Rotary's motto Service above Self, embodies Rotary's objective to provide service - in the community, in the workplace and around the globe. Rotarians come from different cultures, ethnicities, political and religious orientations. While this means that each club is unique, it also means that we set differences aside to focus on the issues such as education, vocational training,clean water and sanitation, food security, health and the global eradication of polio.

Trivia Night is always a fun filled evening that brings out a sellout crowd from our community!
Participants share in an evening of fun and frivolity with lots of never before heard of trivia to challenge the brain. Rotary information for our non-Rotarian friends is generously added to the mix to focus so they could understand how fundraising dollars can help both at home and abroad whether it's helping our youth, our community or eradicating polio! 
This year's event is Friday, November 17 with doors open at 6:00 pm; the venue is the Best Western Parkway Inn.

Ken Heagle our speaker, has been president of the Legion for 2 terms, he served I Canadian Armed Forces and also with the police. Ken gave a presentation on the Legion and some of the services it provides. He has also been part of the service council for many years. The Legion will be 80 yrs old in 2019. It was set up for veterans to meet and share time together due to the members’ unique experiences and needs. Their job is to care for the community, to remember members and their families that are left behind when members are working. The Legion Riders; motorcycle riders have raised more than $20,000 for homeless Veterans. The Poppy campaign is the main fundraiser. He reminded us that the Poppy is a symbol of honoring (remembering) our Veterans and all they did for us. It is not to glorify war. The money they raise is used most locally, though they do contribute to provincial and National associations, including an Emergency fund in Ottawa. Ken is the head of the Veterans community outreach. They provide financial and access to mental health assistance to veterans. Veterans are PROUD, and often don’t seek help that is available. Ken says that there are many homeless veterans; finding and persuading them to access assistance is one of his jobs.  Should you know of a Veteran that does need assistance, please contact him.  
Another successful Staples Back-to-School program partnership year concluded with the distribution of gift cards representing the $3000 generated by this program to benefit the educational needs of young people in the Cornwall-Akwesasne area. Some changes to the program led to the program targeting a somewhat different some different groups this year. This year the program organizers took into account local not-for-profit organizations that benefit youth as well as continuing to provide some ongoing support by providing school supplies to schools serving Akwesasne students.  All of the supplies made available through this program directly benefit students by providing educational materials that parents normally help students acquire.
