What's Happening at Sunrise Rotary
 
We had 24 Rotarians and friends respond to our appeal for “Friends In Need/Ukraine”. We raised $3,620.00, which will be forwarded on to the District 6250, Foundation for direct use in Ukraine. Thanks to Dave Valle and Jacquelyn Zoellner for bringing this all together.
 
A crew of Rotarians spent part of the May 6th evening as part of the Feed My Starving Children meal packing event that helped pack thousands of meals. Kids and adults of all ages hand-pack nutritious MannaPack® meals specifically designed to assist in reversing and preventing undernutrition. Volunteering occurs at our permanent sites and hundreds of MobilePack™ events nationwide. For more information on Feed my Starving Children, check out https://www.fmsc.org/

The Marshfield Sunrise Rotary Club has been recognized as a ShelterBox HERO for Rotary Year 2021-2022. ShelterBox is a global organization made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital. Sunrise Rotary has made contributions for many years to the ShelterBox cause of providing shelter and basic needs to people around the world affected by natural disasters and other causes of displacement.
Rotary joins other international agencies in providing immediate relief to disaster survivors through our partnership with ShelterBox and mobilizing our expertise to support long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
– Gary C.K. Huang,
   2014-15 Rotary International President
ShelterBox's has provided shelter to 2.2 million people since 2000. For more information, please visit www.shelterboxusa.org
 
Fellow Rotarian, Dale Marth joined us to give an update on the state of recycling in 2022 and a business update as Advanced Disposal is now part of Waste Management. Dale shared some recent developments on the supply chain issues in recent years including how some efforts in the U.S. have ramped up including new facilities and advancements in technology. If you missed the meeting, check out his slide deck or watch the recording. Thanks for the great information, Dale!
 
Shannon Nienast presented Feed My Starving Children to the club and created a lot of interest in helping with a Mobilepack event where meals are packed for those in need. The event provides a first step to feed children by packing bulk ingredients into individual meals and then shipping them to those in need.  The next event is May 5-7th at Zion United Methodist Church across from Aldi’s. The Marshfield Mobilepack website page is open now for donations and opens March 25th to let volunteer’s sign-up to pack. (www.marshfieldfmsc.com) The goal is to pack over 124,000 meals this year.  The $30,000 fundraising goal is to pay for the ingredients and FMSC staff to help run the event.
 
The Noon Rotary Club supported the the "Escuintla Hospital" project last year and we recently received an update from the group. The Escuintla Hospital project is an initiative of the World Community Service Committee of the Rotary Club of Milwaukee. Jerry Stepaniak recently spoke at the noon club and he is looking for others to join him on that journey this summer to Guatemala.  So, if any Rotarian is interested in traveling there, feel free to contact him at jerrystepaniak@gmail.com
 
Bryce Loll attended World Affairs Seminar in June of 2021 and while his event was a virtual one, he still enjoyed the opportunity to meet hundreds of students from all over the world in an event built for building "peace through understanding". The World Affairs Seminar is an international youth initiative of Rotary International District 6270. The idea is if the causes are understood and solutions developed in a cooperative environment, problems are more likely to be solved peacefully. Our club will again sponsor one student to attend World Affairs Seminar in June of 2022 where they are currently planning both an in person and virtual option. Please contact Jill Porter if you know of a student who may be interested in applying. For more information, visit www.worldaffairsseminar.org
