In another exciting day... Petoskey Sunrise Rotary members completed our annual Highway, Waterfront, Bike Path cleanup.  After breakfast and safety briefing, club members headed out to clean up our section of the Adopt a Highway (US131 south of Petoskey, Petoskey waterfront and the bike path section behind D&W grocery).  Super day, super fun and super clean!
Sunrise Rotary is now meeting at the First Presbyterian Church in Downtown Petoskey.  The address is 501 E. Mitchell Street, the corner of E. Mitchell and Division Streets, across from the Crooked Tree Arts Center.  Members and guests are advised to enter through the back door and then go down the steps to find our meeting room.  Street parking is free at that hour, and there is also a small lot behind the church.  
The club is grateful for its long-standing relationship with Beards Brewery and will miss the great views and cool vibe for its meetings there.  Thank you to Ben Slocum and his team for making us feel so welcome and for providing such a great meeting space over the past few years.  
The space at the Presbyterian Church is newly renovated and will provide a new, comfortable venue for Sunrise Rotary.  We look forward to this next chapter in our club's history that now spans 25-years!  
Our meetings will continue to begin at 7:30 a.m. and end at 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday mornings.  
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.
