We are a small and motivated breakfast club with members drawn from a wide range of vocations. Our goal is to serve our local community with a strong focus on youth. Our two primary activities are the Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) which is an event for high school students held annually at the Museum of Australian Democracy and DreamCricket, which provides opportunities for primary school children with disabilities to play cricket. We enjoy the friendship and fellowship associated with Rotary service.

Thanks to the awesome bunch of Sunrise and Sundowner members who worked tirelessly for over 4 hours sorting clothes at Vinnies in Mitchell today. A huge amount of clothes were sorted and will go out to the distribution centres next week. The 27 centres in Vinnies local network raise almost half of their funds used to fund their various programs to give people a hand up.
 
Our team managed to get through a total of 38 bags and made up 36 boxes of stock for the Vinnies Centres. This involved handling over 1100kgs of textiles that have been kept out of landfill and will raise valuable funds for their various programs.
 
We had a lot of fun supporting this great charity.  A great effort.
 
  
 
  
Our Sundowners satellite Club ran a Virtual Tupperware event over the week of 25th October.  Our tupperware hostess Steph donated her 20% commission on all sales through this activity to our End Polio Now campaign for the club. Thanks so much Steph.
There were plenty of great bargains and shoppers were busy - everyone loves a tupperware party!
The results are in.  We raised $1,248 through this event for Rotary's End Polio Campaign.  A wonderful effort.  Thanks to all who participated.
 
Yesterday President David and last year's Board members Lain, Peter and Rosemary celebrated with Amanda Tobler, CEO of CS#1, Canberra Sunrise's purchase of two mobile freezer eskies for use with their food pantry to extend services to those in need. This is part of a broader relationship that the club has worked to establish with CS#1, which has culminated in a Rotary District Grant to support the food pantry purchases of fresh ingredients.
We are very pleased to be able to support some of the broad set of community activities CS#1 is involved in.
