Petoskey Rotary Sunrise was formed in 1997 by the Petoskey Noon Rotary.  We offer an alternative meeting time and experience for those in the area that want to give back through service; yet the press of business does not allow for a noon-club participation.  You'll find that we generally are a younger group and our projects are "hands-on".  Meetings start at 7:30am and after coffee, bagels, a good joke or two, and a program, we're out the door by 8:15am.
 
Mission:  The mission of Rotary International, a worldwide association of Rotary clubs, is to provide service to others, to promote high ethical standards, and to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

Locally, the Petoskey Rotary Sunrise Club has approx. 50 members.  We meet weekly (7:30am - 8:15am) at the Petoskey United Methodist Church. 

Although we are involved with many local projects, Rotary is a world-wide movement and we too are involved in international projects.


Rotary International is the world's first service club organization. Its more than 1.2 million members volunteer their time and talent to further the Rotary motto, Service Above Self.

The Object of Rotary:  The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
  • FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
Avenues of Service:  Based on the Object of Rotary, the Avenues of Service are Rotary's philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:
  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club.
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
  • Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.
The Four-Way Test:  Of the things we think, say or do
1. Is it the TRUTH?  2.  Is it FAIR to all concerned?  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
