Superior Sunrise Centennial Rotary Club was officially chartered as club #68,396 on February 23, 2005, the day of Rotary International's Centennial. Superior Sunrise was formed not only to offer a morning Rotary option for community members, but to expand Rotary opportunities in the community as well. Charter members numbered 28; 18 from our sponsoring club, Superior Rotary, and 10 members new to the Rotary family. Like all clubs, Superior Sunrise has experienced an ebb and flow in individual members, but membership overall has remained strong. It's also a size that has fostered fellowship and generated camaraderie among members that may not occur in larger clubs.  We are small, but mighty.

 

From its beginning, Superior Sunrise has actively engaged in Rotary's four avenues of service. Members take turns to perform club service activities associated with conducting an effective meeting including greeting guests and members, offering invocation, securing and introducing programs, and engaging members in lively rounds of fellowship. Members routinely enjoy community service projects such as the Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival planning and organization, assisting the Salvation Army with their annual bell ringing campaigns, volunteering to help with other organizations' food drives, collecting back packs and school supplies for needy school children, adopting families at Christmas. Superior Sunrise members display vocational service in evaluating senior projects at the Superior High School, providing vocational highlights to club members and sponsoring students to attend RYLA.

 

Club members and generous supporters have created numerous Paul Harris Fellows.  We proudly carry a tradition of 100% Paul Harris Fellowship in our members.  

 

Superior Sunrise Centennial members have deep roots with the Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival. Several of our charter members (former Superior Rotary members) were actively engaged in giving birth to the first festival event in 2001. Superior Sunrise is honored to be a Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival Associate Partner, effective with the 2008 festival.

 

 The club meets Tuesday mornings at 7:00 am at Perkins in Superior, Wisconsin.  However, check our website and Facebook page, sometimes we forego meeting in favor of service projects. On the Fourth Tuesday of each month, we hold a Moonrise Rotary Meeting - inviting friends and family to join us for an evening at a local restaurant, bar, or other venue.
