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.

The final meeting of 2017…. And, a wonderful meeting it was!  Sebastian Warner spoke about the Bromont Ultra, a very tough 100 mile charity footrace that was held in October, and some of the things that motivated him.  For this elite athlete, the race over rough terrain was a challenge that called up plenty of determination and stamina. It also reinforced his will to focus on the pledge made to support the work of friends in Ghana and Canada.
As a humanitarian, Sebastian chose to support the work of the Rotary Clubs of Cornwall Sunrise and Sunyani Central in partnership with BUVA (Buruli Ulcer Victims Aid) because he has first-hand knowledge of the identification, education and treatment work being done in rural Ghana.  As a university student, he had spent some time in Ghana with a Ghanaian classmate and when his university friend married, Sebastian was groomsman. The visit provided an opportunity for a side trip to meet Emmanuel Agumah (president of BUVA) and experience first-hand the work being done in deprieved rural areas to educate communities to identify and treat Buruli ulcer and other neglected tropical skin diseases. 

The $1100 generated by Sebastian’s run helps to support the continuing work to improve health-care education and treatment for hundreds who would be otherwise neglected.

The 16th annual trivia night fundraiser, under the direction of our own Stefan Kolbinger as Master of Ceremonies for the evening, enjoyed the momentum of a lively sell-out crowd that moved merrily through question categories. In the spirit of Canada 150, Quiz Master Bob Firth had developed questions based on our country and its history thus giving trivia players an opportunity to test their knowledge on everything Canadian from people and places to food and photography.
Additional highlights of the evening included 
  • presentation of  a cheque in the amount of $10,000.00 by our President, Tom Everson, to Amy Gillespie, of the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation.  These funds are being directed toward the new Community Addiction and Mental Health Services facility at the Cornwall Community Hospital
  • president-elect Martin Nadon presented a cheque in the amount of $2,500.00 to the Aultsville Theatre group to help upgrade the sound and lighting systems at the theatre
  • Sunrise Rotarian Katelyn Beaudette donated her lengthy hair to Angel Hair for Kids, a nonprofit organisation that creates wigs for children who have lost their hair due to illness. The hair was cut during the event by Cornwall hair stylist Angie Fontaine. Ms. Beaudette raised funds prior to and during this event in excess of $550.00 that will go toward sponsoring a wig for a child.

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.
