I’m pleased to be back with you again after a brief hiatus. It’s been an exciting period for the Rotary Club of Sudbury Sunrisers with many things happening.
We have a new president, Louise Bergeron. Louise is a dynamic individual, with an infectious sense of humor and a smile that lights up a room. This promises to be a busy year for Louise and she has surrounded herself with an energetic executive who are committed to getting the job done.
Sandra Campbell heads up the Public Relations committee. A huge responsibility considering this year, our Club celebrates its 25th anniversary of service. Sandra will be collaborating with the good folks from Northern Life to bring spectacular coverage of our club’s history and upcoming events.
Sue Lekun has agreed to chair Vive le Vin for another year. This event is being held Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Caruso Club and promises to be the best ever with a fun night of dancing, sipping wine and enjoying great food and super auctions.
Sue will be releasing further information on this event again with the assistance of our good friends from Northern Life. In the meantime, remember tickets go quickly, order yours from any Sunriser.
The club continues to live up to its motto, “Service above Self.” The community at large and its needs are important to this club.
Liz Spooner is busy planning our annual campaign in support of the Elgin Street Mission, which sees teams of Rotarians and their supporters attend the mission on a daily basis in December to help with the serving of the evening meal. Each team brings a donation of cash to the mission to assist with their ongoing work.
Brian Smith and his committee continue to maintain and upgrade Rotary Park, a jewel in the middle of our robust city.
The policy of the Sudbury Sunrisers is to have every member engaged, involved and most importantly, having fun! Recruitment and retention of members are vital parts of a growing club. Our Membership chair, Gerry Lougheed Jr., has been very successful in recruiting new dynamic members from a cross section of the community.
Why not join us? We meet every Thursday at 7:30 a.m. at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Sudbury. Enjoy a light breakfast, a great speaker, and we promise you’ll be on your way to work by 8:30 a.m.
Contact Gerry Lougheed Jr. at 705-673-9591, or any Sunriser to see how you can make positive contributions to your community as a member of the Rotary Club of Sudbury Sunrisers.
Alex McCauley served as police chief from 1994 to 2002. Now he is an active volunteer and member of the Rotary Club of Sudbury Sunrisers.
