The year has got off to a busy start for the Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise.  Over the next 6 weeks we are running DreamCricket Clinics at local schools, running a BBQ in support of the Epilespy ACT Annual Walk and running a couple of fund raising BBQs - including one on ANZAC Day at Bunnings Belconnen.  Planning committees are also busy preparing for our annual Trivia Fundraiser (1 June), our Model United Nations Assembly debating weekend (August) and a DreamCricket Gala Day (October).  It is great to be so busy supporting our local community, and also great to have such a committed group of volunteers to make these events all happen.
 
If you are keen to give back to the community and support some of these events, please contact us and come along to a Club meeting to check us out.  No pressure.  No obligation.

The proceeds of a most successful 2017 Trivia Night, conducted by the Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise, were handed over to YouthCare Canberra at a recent Club meeting.  Conducted at the Hellenic Club and, with the generous support of some 175 people who attended, the night raised $12,000. 
 
The Club’s focus is on the disabled and youth in its local community. YouthCare Canberra was therefore an ideal recipient given that it provides a unique outreach program that is focused on improving the lives of alienated and excluded street youth in the Canberra region.

Following powerful earthquakes and aftershocks that have shaken the country since 26 February, ShelterBox has sent an assessment team comprising Ops staff, two SRT volunteers from UK and US. We hope they will be joined by colleagues from Australia and New Zealand in due course. An estimated half a million people have been affected. These families are in remote mountain locations, their villages and communities have been devastated, and the emergency shelter need is high. We are working with the Papua New Guinea Disaster Management Team, the Shelter Cluster and partners on the ground to make sure we can give families the right aid to help them rebuild their lives. ShelterBox has vital aid, including tarpaulins, ropes and mosquito nets, stationed in Subang, Malaysia. On arrival in the capital Port Moresby our teams will first assess need, and the challenges of reaching the most vulnerable.
 
 Please advise visitor attendance or member non-attendance to Helen Deutsch before 12.00 noon Tuesday every week
