What's New At Rotary Sunrise
Please help us celebrate the development of Ukraine Rotary Park by attending the grand opening on Saturday, August 27 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. The park is located at the corner of Victoria and Grand Avenue.
The tribute park has been adorned with berms, sunflowers, benches and flagpoles flying both Canadian and Ukrainian flags and is ready for public use.
At the July 12, 2022 breakfast meeting, outgoing club president Ken Bechard said goodbye to last year and hello to the new.
Ken was presented with an Imagine Rotary tie by Assistant District Governor Ken Corlett, and Audrey Chevalier was presented with an Imagine Rotary scarf. The Imagine Rotary campaign commemorates incoming Rotary International president Jennifer Jones historic achievement by becoming the first female RI president.  
As part of the Sunflowers for Ukraine initiative, project chair Paul Roy arranged to have a variety of sunflowers planted at Veterans Tribute Garden on Saturday, May 21.

The Rotary Club of Chatham Sunrise is pleased to introduce Sunflowers for Ukraine, a fundraiser to directly assist the humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine.
The project will focus of the distribution of 2000 packets of Sunflower Seeds and a donation of $5.00 each for a goal of $10,000 raised for humanitarian projects in Ukraine.
The Rotary Club of Chatham Sunrise is pleased and honoured to announce Mr. Bruce Cockburn has been presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship Award for Community Service.
