"Serving the Children of the World"
Medina Sunrise Rotary - Breakfast Kiwanis - BSA Troop 5237
"Christmas is the season for giving," began Roger Hassler, Medina Sunrise Rotary Club president, as he extended his best holiday greetings to Medina Breakfast Kiwanis, Scout Master Jeff Milam and Life Scout Justin Michalski of BSA Troop 5237, Past District Governor Jack Young, Buckeye Schools Superintendent Kent Morgan, and all our welcome guests.
Service is at the heart of every Rotary and Kiwanis club, no matter where in the world it is located. Each community’s needs are different—so each one of our clubs is different. By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things happen!
What brings the spirit of Christmas into our lives more than the fellowship of friends who are part of a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child at a time in our community and beyond through our time, talents and treasures.
We Wish You a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

PRESENTED TO ROGER HASSLER
Roger Hassler was presented with the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow Award by Will Koran, club chairman of the Rotary Foundation, in the presence of fellow Medina Sunrise Rotarians, Buckeye Schools Superintendent Kent Morgan and Mallory Severance, at the community room of Carlson's Funeral Home in Medina.
The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges those individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of US$1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.
The Rotary Foundation is a non-profit corporation that supports the efforts of Rotary International to achieve world understanding and peace through international humanitarian, educational, and cultural exchange programs. It is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world. The Foundation was created in 1917 by Rotary International's sixth president, Clevelander Arch C. Klumph, as an endowment fund for Rotary "to do good in the world." It has grown from an initial contribution of US$26.50 to more than US$1billion. It has one of the largest and most prestigious international fellowship programs in the world.
Roger Hasser was inducted as the new Medina Sunrise Rotary Club president this morning in the "Passing of the Gavel" ceremony, an honored Rotary tradition signifying the responsibility associated with the office of club president.
Jack Young, Past Rotary District Governor and presiding Rotary District Officer, accepted the gavel from past club president representative Daryl Kubilus, signifying the return of responsibility which the outgoing president was entrusted upon assuming presidency. He then passedd the gavel to the incoming club president Roger Hassler, demonstrating his confidence in the president's ability to handle the responsibility of the office of president and maintain or better the club and fulfill the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self."
Following a warm Rotary welcome, Roger thanked his wife Nancy, the Board, fellow Rotarians, and guest Joe Grimsic. He concluded the meeting by recognizing Judy Cross as the new club treasurer and thanking her for accepting the responsibilities of this important office.
Medina Sunrise Rotary Celebrates 22nd Anniversary of Service
Gathered around the Rotary Burr Oak Tree, which is planted on the southwest lawn of Medina's Historic Public Square, Medina Sunrise Rotary celebrated 22 years of service to the community.
"The Burr Oak Tree came from the Morgan Park, Illinois, home of Paul Harris who founded Rotary in 1905," said first club president Becky Shotwell. "It was little more than a 12" sprig when the City of Medina received it in the 1990's and, taking root in the community, now stands proudly at nearly 40 feet tall on Public Square. The Medina Sunrise Rotary Club returns each year in the fall to watch the sun rise over Medina, note the growth of our tree, and renew our commitment to making a difference in the lives of children in our community and beyond, through our time, talents and treasures."

SUPPORT SHELTERBOX USA AT THE 2016 MEDINA INTERNATIONAL FEST
"Since ShelterBox was founded in 2000, we have responded to over 270 disasters and humanitarian crises in more than 95 geographic locations and have provided emergency aid for well over one million people," said Jack Young, past Rotary District Governor and ShelterBox USA Board of Directors Emeritus. Within the first critical hours, we provide emergen...cy shelter and vital supplies to support communities in the US and around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis.
THANK YOU to Medina International Fest and the City of Medina for helping to promote awareness of ShelterBox and to the generosity of so many who donated to those who need our help when disaster strikes. You make a difference!
From Hurricane Katrina and the recent flooding in Louisiana, to the Earthquake survivors in Nepal and Ecuador, and the ongoing refugee crisis in Syria, when families are in need of emergency shelter, Rotary and ShelterBox will do everything we can to help them.

Dr. Michael Carlson and the associates of Carlson Funeral Home welcomed Medina Sunrise Rotary to an Anniversary Celebration and fellowship breakfast recognizing the club's 20 years of service to Medina.
"We received our club charter from Rotary International in 1994," stated founding club president Becky Shotwell. "From the very beginning, we have been committed to making a difference in the lives of children in our community and beyond through our time, talents and treasures."
The event was marked by an historic video of the club produced by Carlson Funeral Homes as a special anniversary gift. A formal flag raising ceremony with a military escort, VFW Post #5137 Honor Guard, 21 gun salute, Taps, the Pledge of Allegiance and a Celtic Eagle bagpiper playing Amazing Grace completed the memorable program.
Dr. Michael Davanzo of the Medina Sunrise Rotary Club, accompanied by First Lady Judith Davanzo, was inaugurated NE-Ohio Rotary District Governor 6630 in a formal banner exchange ceremony to mark the beginning of a his 2014-15 term of office.
The upscale event was held at the Root Candles' Community Room which had been graciously provided by The A.I. Root Company. Over 100 guests enjoyed the music, food and fellowship while extending their congratulations and well wishes to Dr. and Mrs. Davanzo as they assume leadership of the district's 56 Rotary Clubs, 5 College Rotaract Clubs, 16 High School Interact Clubs and 6 International Youth Exchange Students.
“'Light Up Rotary' is our International Theme," declared Dr. Davanzo, "but it is more than our theme. It is how we live in Rotary, how we think in Rotary, how we feel, and how we work. It is how we make a difference — every day, in every club, every community, every district, and every country where we serve.”
"How you Light Up Rotary is up to you,” Davanzo emphasized. “You know where you are strong, you know what your community needs, and you know how you can help." When we come together as 1.22 million Rotarians to eradicate polio — and we will — we will have proved ourselves a global service organization capable of great things. And we’ll be even better equipped for the next challenge we choose to take on. We’ll have given the world a gift that will endure forever.”
The Medina Sunrise Rotary Club recently partnered with Judge Kevin Dunn on a Build-a-Bear Workshop.
“All our hard-working Rotarian and student volunteers were a big help,” said retired Judge Judy Cross, Rotary project chair. “The Build-A-Bear program, under Medina County Common Pleas Judge Kevin Dunn, was another big success this year as last. The lovable bears will be given to local foster children and distributed to some of the children who currently attend Medina County’s Windfall School.”
Rotary Club President John Ross added, “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Judge Kevin Dunn on such a worthy project. The Build-a-Bear program is a perfect extension of our Medina Sunrise Rotary mission of ‘Making a difference in the lives of children in our community and beyond through our time, talents and treasures.’”
