Rotarian of the Year
Every year Sunrise Rotary makes a presentation for the Rotarian of the Year. Originally donated by Charter President Hardy Nielsen in 1997/98, this award is given to a Rotarian who best exemplifies the true spirit of Rotary through exceptional service and dedicated “Service Above Self” to the Club, the community and the world. With a club as active as Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary, it is never an easy task to make this selection.
The winner of the award this year is Kambi  Heywood who is not only a Charter member of the Club but a Sunriser still fully involved with the Club and active in most Club events, either helping out or taking a leading role. Beyond Rotary, Kambi is self-employed and part of a very active family.  As a Rotarian she has been involved internationally with Rotary, and helps to promote the Club and all that it does as well as helping teach members new technological ways of helping those less fortunate than us throughout the world. Among her many accomplishments, with and for Rotary, Kambi recently travelled to India to participate in a National Immunization Day for the eradication of Polio. A great champion for youth and all of our youth initiatives, Kambi is fully engaged with the New Generations and we thank her for that and all her contributions to Rotary activities.
