What's Happening at Sunrise Rotary
The 2020 Sunrise Rotary Rose Sale was a great success! Thank you to all of our club members and their families and friends for helping with the sales, delivery, organization and planning. Most importantly, thank you to our communities for supporting the sale and bringing the smiles and joy of roses to so many in our community! Our sale resulted in approximately $15,000 of funds raised which go directly to the programs and communities that our club supports like youth leadership, scholarships, local and international community development programs, and much more.
A special shout out to Phil Phillips, Darla Leick and Sheri Meissner for selling the most roses individually this year. Congrats Sunrise Rotary and thanks again to all who bought roses or made a donation!
Dr. Julie Tharp joined Sunrise Rotary for a presentation on this year's Marshfield Cultural Fair which, like many events, will be held virtually. Check out here presentation for information on all of the great events and activities planned! Dr Tharp is a professor of English with courses in Composition, Multicultural Literature, Women's Studies, Film Studies, and lots of other areas. She has a deep interest in global film, cuisine, and travel. Thank you for joining us and spreading the word for this great event!
Amanda Haffele from Portage County Solid Waste joined Sunrise Rotary to give a great presentation on how her facility operates and how to properly recycle items using our curbside bins. Their facility brings in 18,000-20,000 TONS of material each year and we all play a small role in helping their operation run efficiently which maximizes the impact of the recycling program and ultimately the impact on our planet! Check out her slide deck for lots more information and best practices or keep reading!
One of our newest members, Jill Porter from the Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library, shared her story of coming to Marshfield from Northern Michigan. It certainly was an interesting start with both Michigan and Wisconsin locking down in the early stages of COVID-19 and her start being pushed back to June of 2020. Upon coming to the library, it was mostly shut down but was providing some services like drive-thru and digital services. Over the summer and fall, more services and programming have been added for patrons of all ages. Check out everything that's going on and all the other changes at marshfieldlibrary.org
Rotary Winter Wonderland | Travel Wisconsin
Al and Danielle Nystrom joined Sunrise Rotary this morning to share that planning and setup for Rotary Winter Wonderland is in full swing this year! The show will be on November 27th - December 31st. At this point volunteer response and business sponsorships have been good. With COVID still affecting events like this, some safety precautions have been put in place. Both walk and drive through routes will be open and the drive through route will be extended up 17th Street. Social distancing, masks, volunteer limits inside buildings and other precautions have been put in place in collaboration with local health officials to ensure the safety of volunteers and guests. "Extra" events like Gingerbread Jams, food sales, etc. won't be there this year but the rest of the show will go forward strong! rotarywinterwonderland.com

  • In the past 14 years:
  • 650,000 food items have been donated
  • $306,000 has been given back to local area food pantries
  • It's estimated that the show includes between 1 and 1.5 million lights
