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.

Sunrise Rotary proudly supports ShelterBox and we just sent our HERO donation of $1,000 for 2020-2021!
Sunrise Rotary is selling holiday poinsettias again this year.  They are from the Plant Farm at the Creach Greenhouse and they are big and beautiful  Each 8" pot has two plants and is wrapped in decorative foil.  The price is $25 and you can contact any Sunrise Rotarian to place an order.  We will be making deliveries on November 24th.
We didn't get to hear from our District Governor today due to technical difficulties with Zoom.  We are hoping he will be able to visit us in person next spring.
It was a beautiful day to deliver backpacks and supplies to the Coeur d'Alene School District.  Dustin even brought Spud to help!  Thank you to all of the Sunrise Rotarians who donated items and to Rotary District 5080 for an Express Grant to purchase the backpacks.  We were able to donate 12 large backpacks for teens and supplies to support the "Hope on the Homefront" program.
