 New 2017-2018 District 7850 Governor Eric Denu visited our chapter this Friday.  Eric shared his family's history with Rotary, discussed the importance of teamwork, announced the upcoming Rotary 5-District Summit and presented us with a nice gift.  
 
It was a beautiful morning out on the lake front today as Burlington Sunrise Rotary helped support the 2017 Dragon Boat Festival for the 12th year in row. The club was split into two teams: one that worked the docks, helping teams in and out of boats.  Thanks to Steve Gentile for leading the dock effort, in some cases for all three days of the festival.  The second squad worked the food table on Sunday, selling bagels, donuts, hot coffee and fruit for Rotary charities.  Thank you Eric Lafayette for leading the food table.
 
Good times were had by all at the joyful Changeover Party at Chris & Paul Frenette's house.  A peaceful and productive Presidential changeover occurred as Julie passed the presidential baton on to Todd.
Jake Elliott from SunCommon spoke with us Friday about the advantages of going solar.  In addition to reducing our carbon footprint, Solar energy can be a positive investment, saving you money on you monthly electric bills while also adding significant value to your home. Their local financing allows Vermonters to go solar with no up front cost making it easy and affordable for everyone.
 
"65,000 Americans died from Opiate use this past year" stated Burlington Police Chief Brandon del Pozo.
 
Our club was honored to host Chief del Pozo on Friday, June 16th. The Chief took time out of a very busy day to discuss the current Opiate Crisis here in Vermont and across the country. He added that we as a country must go back to Word War II to find that type of annual American death toll from one source.
