President's Message
     It's an honor to be the President for the Coeur d'Alene Sunrise Rotary Club in 2020/21.  A little about myself, I have been a Rotarian since 2008 and the last 4 years had the pleasure of being the Sergeant of Arms for our club.  I have been a resident of N. Idaho for nearly 28 years.  I met my wife 5 years ago and we have been married for almost 2 years now.  I am currently employed at Kootenai Title where I have been in sales for over 15 years.  In my free time my wife and I enjoy the outdoors from snowmobiling, camping, river rafting and fly fishing.  I have one Black Lab named Pearl and a new puppy on the way, a Red Healer named Spud.
     My time in Rotary has taught me so much about my own community and the many regions in our World that Rotary has made an impact.  
     This year is going to have many new challenges that Rotary has never faced before.   The world as a whole is facing challenges never seen before.  I see Rotary as a place that many will become attracted to because of its ability to bring community back together and allow for Fellowship at a much needed time in society.  
     Our club is filled with so many dynamic people that we are able to accomplish some amazing things.
     I look forward to facing the challenges ahead as a club and as the club president. It’s an honor and a privilege.
     Our club is currently meeting in person at the Resort and on Zoom.  Please contact me if you would like the Zoom link.

June 9th was a special day for Sunrise Rotary and our fictitious University of Lake Coeur d'Alene.  Despite the fact that we didn't have agricultural products to sell, the CdA Farmers Market welcomed our ULCDA booth to market ULCDA logo shirts.  Our wonderful volunteers, sporting their ULCDA shirts, sold 16 and were invited back to the market in the future.  Great Job!
