For the first time in our 6 year history the Bozeman Sunrise Rotary had to postpone the Fix-Up Festival due to inclement weather. So we will be holding the Fix-Up Festival this Saturday October 10th. We have selected 12 deserving homeowners in the Bozeman, Belgrade, and Four Corners area. Each project has been scoped, materials ordered, adopter crews assembled and now we are ready for the fun to begin.

This year's home adopters include Edward Jones, West Paw Designs, Bozeman Kiwanis, Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley, Rocky Mountain Credit Union, Pacific Steel & Recycling, Teton Heritage Builders, WIPFLi/Galusha Higgins & Galusha, Bozeman Exchange Club, Opportunity Bank, Dovetail Construction, and the Jeanine Group.

Stay tuned for pictures, videos, and stories from our Fix Up Day. 



In Syria, where a civil war has been raging since 2011, more than 6,000 people flee the country every day. As of September, more than 4.1 million people have become refugees, and 7.6 million more have been internally displaced.

“The plight of Syria’s refugees is a litmus test for the world's compassion,” says Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko. “Rotary members worldwide are profoundly disheartened by the refugee crisis now unfolding in Syria and other parts of the world,” which the United Nations has described as the worst in decades.

Here is the most recent post from our outbound student from Bozeman, Cale Josephs
Oh my goodness, I have become friends with people from around the globe and have come to realize Taipei is a wonderful city! September, well September was full of new experiences and beginning the process of immersion into this new and exciting culture. I have been introduced to a whole range of new foods which I can not pronounce but are very good. Taipei is a very modern city with lots of activities to do and places to go such as the zoo, art museum, temples, night markets, tech plaza or the various hiking opportunities that surround Taipei and they are all readily available due to the excellent transit system. Also if you look out of Taipei there are countless more events to participate in and cities to visit. I have very little down time and when I do I spend it at one of the hundreds of very good cafes that have called Taipei home. I am truly grateful for this opportunity and am very excited to see what lies ahead here in my new home.


Greetings Rotarians!

Hopefully this message finds you all well and enjoying a long lasting summer this month.

Your club has been involved in much this past month and we have a bunch to do ahead, you folks are a power house!

I am very happy to announce that your Board of Directors approved our 2015/2016 budget and there are some very exciting goals established amongst our club’s committees to serve and serve big!

The growing results of Fix-Up Festival lead by Ted Campbell’s Community Service Committee are full steam ahead right now. The big day is October 3, 2015.

As a construction guy, I know that Jon Ayres is hard at it, arranging the many aspects in order for these projects to be ready to execute on site that day. Jon is a champion at spearheading this, thanks Jon! I also heard Cathi Simonson’s announcement during Governor Bullock’s visit last week for all of us to consider assisting with event support efforts. Trust me, Fix Up festival is not at all just about construction work. There are many fun tasks to help with to ensure that our service efforts run very well, you will be proud to help. The results of Rotarians and other groups in our community following your club’s lead is astounding and impactful. For those members that have yet to experience our club’s Fix Up Festival contribution to our community I really encourage you to ask Cathi or Ted how best to help. At a minimum take a short ride around with a friend or family member to a project or two and see what your club does and does so well. 

I’d like to thank Rotaract President Sam Hensler and his Board, Youth Services Committee headed up by Frederick Richards and the Membership Committee headed up by Barbara do Amaral for working together to provide clarity of club membership criteria for Rotaractors in good standing.  This important goal is nearing completion and once again Rotaract is charged up to do big things this year. Thanks folks!

As I look at our speakers in the coming months,  Wow, we have much to look forward to on that front as well. Thank you Governor Bullock for speaking to us last week and thanks to Taylor Middleton (GM of Big Sky Resort) for scheduling in October to allow both to happen.  

Fun stuff Rotarians, fun stuff!
