Sunrise Events
For a number of years, our Rotarians have been weekly readers for dual language students at Henking School.  In May we ended the school year with a lunch for the second grade students.  Rotarians visited with the friends they'd made through the year, provided lunch and presented each student with a certificate of accomplishment for participating in the Rotary Readers program throughout their time at Henking.  They'll move on to a new school next year but we won't forget them or their amazing teacher, Kate McNally!  Just look at these smiles:
Glenview Sunrise Rotarians were present to support the Glenview Park District's annual fish release.  Hundreds of people attended and children were able to help restock Lake Glenview.
Rotarians spent a morning picking up trash along Waukegan Road.  That's just one of the club's environmental initiatives; another is planting and maintaining pollinator gardens throughout the village.
Working with the Rotary Club of Fort Collins, Colorado, Rotary District 6440 and The Rotary Foundation, our club helped provide safe water for the remote El Potrero community in Guatemala.  Using a spring box, water storage tank and distributions system, the project also involved installing 13 latrines and enhancing residents' knowledge of the importance of safe water, proper sanitation and good hygiene.  Local community members played a key role in establishing the new system and will continue to be vital to the maintenance of the system and to it being self-sustaining.
Each week, members of the Rotary Club of Glenview Sunrise read with ELL students at Henking School.  Here's Rotarian Nancy Vert with Ms. McNally's second graders.  It's a fun program that builds community and encourages literacy.
In January, Marcia Cebula of the Rotary Club of Glenview Sunrise joined 13 other Rotarians to work at the Oasis de Jacquin agricultural school outside of Cartagena, Colombia. They enlarged the school's plant sales area, created pathways around the perimeter of the grounds, made a planting wall and drew lines on a soccer field that will be available for children attending camp at the school.  Thanks, Marcia, for your dedication on this and other international service trips!
Rotarians and Northfield Girl Scouts started 2024 by working together to provide lunches for clients at Connections for the Homeless.
Rotarians participated in the Glenview Park District's Festival of Trees at Park Center.  Happy holidays to all!
Members of the Glenview Sunrise, Northbrook Satellite and Northbrook Rotary Clubs along with Glenbrook South's Interact Club are shown with the 1,000th coat collected by the annual Coat Off Your Back drive.  These coats have been distributed to 13 organizations serving refugees, domestic violence survivors and other people in need.  There's still time to donate (through December 15th).  Dropoff locations are open through December 15th and include Glenbrook South High School, Glenview Ice Center, Glenview Public Library, Glenview Tennis Club, and Weiss Ace Hardware.
Members of the Rotary Club of Glenview Sunrise spent a morning helping prepare meal packets to be sent around the world for Feed My Starving Children.  We're always looking for other people of action to help with our projects.
Glenview Sunrise Rotarians kicked off the season by helping set up for the Christmas tree sale at Wagner Farm.
Rotary's annual Coat Off Your Back winter gear drive is up and running!  Members of the Rotary Clubs of Glenview Sunrise, Northbrook, Deerfield and Glenview were joined by GBS Interactors to sort the record 228 coats collected this week.  Dropoff locations are open through December 15th and include Glenbrook South High School, Glenview Ice Center, Glenview Public Library, Glenview Tennis Club, and Weiss Ace Hardware.  Coats this week are heading to Glenview Youth Services, World Relief and Ethiopian Community Association. 
You’re cordially invited to join the Rotary Club of Glenview Sunrise Thursday morning, October 5th, either in person at the Glenview Ice Center (1851 Landwehr Road, 2nd floor) or via Zoom (link below).  The program for this meeting will be a fascinating live interview of Ukrainian refugee Iryna (Ira) Mokrytskа by the club’s past president, Joel Levin.  Ira is a communications manager who holds B.A. and M.A. degrees from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Institute of Journalism in Ukraine.  She moved to the United States in October, 2022, and currently lives and works in Washington, DC.  The meeting will begin at 7:00 a.m. and end by 8:15 a.m.
Please consider joining us to hear Ira’s compelling first-person account of how the war in Ukraine has affected one individual.

Our regular club meeting on September 14th will be held at the Glenview Public Libary, 1930 Glenview Road.  The library's executive director, Lindsey Dorfman, will present to us on censorship.  Visitors are welcome at all of our meetings.
At today's meeting the club collected clothing and other items for WINGS, an agency serving victims of domestic violence. Photo shows organizer Suzanne Lyhus with new club president Dee Santucci partway through the collection.
It was a proud night for Glenview Sunrise Rotarians as our own Mary Bak became governor of Rotary District 6440 for the 2023-24 Rotary year.  Dee Santucci took over as club president, Scoutmaster Daniel Bertholf of Troop 55 was honored and Rotarians Suzanne Lyhus and Ron Dake were awarded and thanked for their extraordinary service to the club and community.
A little rain wasn't enough to keep a group of intrepid Rotarians, Scouts and friends from gathering trash along Waukegan Road as part of the club's Adopt-a-Highway project.  All are welcome to join us by helping out with this semiannual program.
In conjunction with Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago, a team of Rotarians helped a homeowner with cleaning and organizing her fifth floor condominium, including cleaning her windows and screens.  The homeowner reported that it was "a miracle" and looks forward to enjoying her spruced-up surroundings thanks to Rotarian Ron Dake and his team.
Sleet, snow and hail didn't keep people away from the Glenview Park District's annual fish release.  Lots of kids came out and helped restock Lake Glenview. Video 
Club member Marcia Cebula and four other friends of the Rotary Club of Glenview Sunrise, along with a group of others, just returned from a service trip to Uganda where Rotarians helped out in a rural school.  Rotary offers many such opportunities.
Using proceeds from the annual Hero Hustle, our club contributes to Youth Services of Glenview/Northbrook.  Club members also enjoy supporting YSGN's Study Buddies program by making and serving a meal to participants each month.
Glenview Sunrise Rotarians joined with the Rotary Club of Northbrook in its annual Coat Off Your Back campaign, bringing warm winter gear to people who need it.  Many of this year's items have been distributed to recent refugees who arrived without coats and other supplies needed to get through an Illinois winter.  Thanks to people throughout the community who donated these important things to help our neighbors face frigid temperatures safely.
