He wouldn't want us to brag, but we should...just a bit.  Craig Elder has become our clubs newest (MULTI) Paul Harris Fellow!  Thank you Craig for all you do for Rotary and the community of Medicine Hat.  We want you to know we notice you, and appreciate you! 
MHC President Kevin Shufflebotham met with us to describe his vision of what Medicine Hat College will look like in the future. His vision, energy and collaborative nature is a great match with Rotary principles. Welcome to the community! 
Lisa Kowalchuk and Sara Mackenzie from the Medicine Hat Chamber of Commerce met with us today to explore the many similarities between the work of the Chamber and the work of Rotary.  Certainly there are some parallels!  Thanks for coming to breakfast with us!  We hope you enjoy our new Sunrise Rotary Roast custom coffee blend.  It is a great way to kick start your day (Rotary and our coffee that is)!
ADG Dave Panabaker attended today to welcome Clare as president and introduce the 2019- 2020 Rotary theme:  Rotary Connects the World.
And it is official!  Clare Lindsay accepts the presidential gavel from Josh Wintoniak signalling the start of a new Rotary executive.  Thanks Josh for all your work over the last year!  And Clare, we look forward to your year as president!
Sunrise Rotary Medicine Hat is thrilled to support the Be Youth Centre this year with money from the Les Erickson Memorial Fund (Community Foundation).  Be Youth provides free programming for youth aged 11- 17 in a fun and safe environment.  As Rotarians, we think this is awesome and are happy to support such a great group!  
Thanks to Celina for meeting our club at the Medicine Hat Library to give us an update on what's happening at the Medicine Hat Food Bank. This is not just any Food Bank, they really go above and beyond and look holistically at how to help their clients. 
Tobie Laliberte - Marketing / Promotions Coordinator at the Esplanade stopped by to give us some updates on all of the exciting new shows, events and exhibits to expect. One lucky Rotarian even walked away with a couple free tickets!
Huge thanks to Sunrise Rotarian, Sean Blewett for hosting us at the Community Future Entre-Corp office. Community Futures Entre-Corp have been helping people turn business ideas into reality in rural for over 30 years!
Thanks to James Paulson from the Medicine Hat Astronomy Club for visiting our club. Your presentation was "out of this world!" It was great to hear about your plans for a new Telescope and your community outreach programs. 
It was great to hear from Jill Forsythe, be YOUth Centre Co-Ordinator on all of the great work that they are doing in their recently updated location.  
We had a great time this morning at Madhatter Coffee Roastery in downtown Medicine Hat!
Rotarians got a chance to learn about the roasting process and the "third wave" coffee trend. After sipping through some wonderful coffee's we voted on our favorite. Stay tuned for something new percolating from Sunrise Rotary soon...
This week we were led on a photographic tour of Keith and Ted's most excellent adventures through Australia and New Zealand.  Crosswalks for the aged.  Fantastic beaches.  Glorious greenery.  Namesake beer and wine.  And apparently a couple of men who drive better on the left side of the road (as per their wives).  Thanks for taking us there by photos!
We are proud to support Danielle Skogen in her efforts with the SERnina project which provides re-usable menstrual products to school-aged girls in Guatemala.  With the $1000 cheque presented by Syl, the support we provided, helps girls  continue their education and enhance future opportunities.  Danielle also reports that a local business owned and operated by women will be producing these products.  A win-win!  
This is what we did!  Thank you for your support with the Purse for a Sister, Bag for a Mister project,  170 purses and bags for the Phoenix Safe House and Salvation Army.  
Speech & Language Works is a speech and language pathology firm in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Their client-centered team works with children and adults presenting a wide range of speech and language issues. Thanks to Sandy Redden for hosting us at her office and sharing her passion for what she does. 
Our esteemed District Governor Dan Doherty stopped at our club in his beautiful Rotary RV. 
Sunrise Rotarians met at MH Brew Co. for some great food and a pint (or two) to support our international efforts to eradicate Polio.
