The Petoskey Sunrise Rotary Club kicked off its 25th Anniversary Celebration with its Annual Charity Giving Breakfast. Donations were given to representatives from The Salvation Army, YMCA of Northern Michigan, Women’s Resource Center, Jr. Achievement, Camp Daggett, Habitat for Humanity, and Manna Food Project. The Sunrise Rotary Club will be celebrating throughout 2023 with many events and fundraisers. 
We have a special Rotary meeting on Tuesday, December 13. Join us at Stafford's Perry Hotel for our Annual Giving Breakfast. Come hungry, there will be a full breakfast there.  The cost is $20/person payable at the door.  Plan to arrive a little early 7:15 AM or so, and stay a little later; this will be a longer meeting. It's worth the stay - we give thousands of dollars to local charities that are making a huge difference in our community.

Club members were on our best behavior and enjoyed our official District Governor Visit by DG Paul Heroman (from Cascade, MI).  A great visit and a great message "Imagine Rotary"

Volunteers from Sunrise Rotary of Petoskey did their part for Earth Day by doing trash pickup in three areas on Sat. April 23rd.  They cleaned their Adopt-a-Highway segment on US 131, a portion of the Little Traverse Wheelway, and a portion of Petoskey’s Bayfront Park.
