Our last Rotary meeting of the fiscal year is Thursday June 27 at 5:47pm (in place of Friday the 28th breakfast) at Riverside Country Club. Join us for celebrating the past year under President Sydney's guidance as she hands out awards to various members, including the coveted Rotarian of the Year. Incoming President Jason Smith will then introduce his administration and expound on his vision and initiatives for the coming year. Feel free to bring spouses and kids to this fun evening.

 Overall 133 kids participated, 57 caught fish with the largest fish being an 18" sucker and the most fish caught being a tie between Berron Rickert and Katalina Keith with 9!

Since we planned for nearly 500 people including parents, left over food immediately went to the Food Bank which they truly appreciated. A great time was had by all despite the drizzly conditions.

The Park Clean-Up Day was the most memorable and fun we've ever had. With nearly 60 volunteers from both Rotary Clubs, Rotaract, Interact, HRDC and volleyball players, we accomplished so much in 3+ hours, capped off by a terrific BBQ courtesy of Bob Wiersma's team.

For ACTIVE members new to Sunrise Rotary, we wanted to educate you on what distinguishes an active member like yourself from a members whose status is called HONORARY. 
What is an honorary member, who are they, and how did they get to be Honorary in our club?
From Rotary International's membership definition 
"Honorary membership is used to recognize people who have distinguished themselves by meritorious service and embody Rotary ideals, or those considered friends of Rotary for their support of Rotary's causes. They are exempt from paying RI dues, have no vote in Rotary matters, are not eligible to hold any club office, and are not included in a club's membership numbers."  Any club member can propose an Honorary member, but granting this request is a board decision/vote.
An ACTIVE member pays dues, is expected to participate in club functions and attend weekly breakfast meetings, and does have a vote in club business.
Our club currently has 7 honorary members, all of whom were, at one time, active members serving the club in service. Here they are and their backgrounds.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of Bob Farrington, Ted Campbell, Andy Blanchford, Mason Shaffer, Danielle Scharf, Doug Chandler, Jim Hamilton, Ted Schmidt, Roger Barnes, Steve Hample, I-Ho Pomeroy, Carson Taylor, and Chris Mehl, Sunrise Rotary recently helped the city of Bozeman with receiving a 50-year lease on the land our Park sits on along with working an agreement with a local developer to receive an additional 2-acres of land adjacent to the park for wetlands protection and rehabilitation. And, in the process, helped to facilitate a name change at the state level. Our new park name is now (or soon will be) Glen Lake Rotary Park.  Due to the dedication of these members, and many others, we can now move forward with the next larger phases of our park master plan later in spring 2019. Watch for additional details forthcoming from the Community Service committee.

The MSU SUB Ballroom hosted our annual banquet and auction on Monday December 3. We seated just shy of 200 patrons for the evening, sold 10 live auction items and another 100 silent auction items that resulted in our netting around $54,000, $4,000 more than our original goal. We'll be providing a wrap-up announcement in a couple weeks at a future breakfast and include full details in our e-bulletin.
Here are a few pics from the evening's festivities
