Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

This year was the 10th year that the Burlington Sunrise Rotary Club donated dictionaries to the 3rd grade class and thesauri to the 4th grade class at Christ the King. Alison, Steve, and Todd visited the school this year, and they had a great time meeting the kids, telling them about Rotary, and why our club has chosen literacy as an area of focus.

 

The kids LOVE getting their own dictionary. Steve (pictured, right) gives the kids three simple rules: 

#1 - Write your name on the inside cover under the Rotary sticker. 

#2 - Highlight words you don’t know when you look them up. 

#3 - Always say “thank you!"

Since Todd became involved with the project three years ago, the kids have also gotten a bonus geography lesson when their Rotarian friends come to visit. Todd was born in Bulgaria, and he always challenges the children to find his birthplace on the map! 

 

 
 
 

On Saturday, January 18th, Burlington Sunrise Rotary joined 28 of our friends from Partners in Adventure to cheer on the Catamounts as they battled UMBC. The ladies were victorious and a good time was had by all. After the game, some of the players stopped by to sign autographs and chat with the group. Image

 

 
 

Lt. Governor Scott spoke to the Club about his ongoing efforts for our state, and his role as a conservative politician in an otherwise liberal Vermont administration. Image

 

 
 
The Sunrise Club gathered at the Winooski Senior Center on October 27th to help carve the 800 pumpkins that will be on display in downtown Winooski next week in celebration of Halloween. It would seem that there's something about giant orange squash that really gets our creative juices flowing!pumpkin carving 10.27.13
