President Juan was happy to present Paula Arreola, our Vocational Grant Scholar, with her grant check to help her with her studies to become a Licensed Phlebotomist and Certified Nursing Assistant. Paula is a single mom of 6 kids. She was referred to the club by the Burbank Adult School.

The Rotary Club of Burbank, the noon club, celebrated their 100th Anniversary with a gala at Lakeside Country Club. The first Rotary Club was founded in 1905. In 1988, Burbank noon sponsored the formation of the Rotary Club of Burbank Sunrise. We have enjoyed many years of community involvement and fellowship with their club and were proud to come out and support their milestone.
Our club was happy to support Matthew Noren’s Eagle Scout project. He restocked a VEPOD (Volunteer Emergency Point Of Distribution) at the Tarzana Community and Cultural Center. This VEPOD provides essential supplies to residents for immediate relief before FEMA can arrive. The VEPOD also provides supplies that can be transported to other locations. He was able to stock 2700 cans of Blue Can Water, 46 MREs, 7600 surgical masks, 12000 Vinyl Gloves, 200 goggles, 40 blankets, 96 rolls of toilet paper, 1000 paper cups, 1000 paper bowls, 500 paper plates and a Blue 500’ roll of plastic!
Our last project of the year! A little something for the 6 residents of Linden House who are transitioning out of foster care. We wished them a happy holiday with grocery, Target, AMC, Dominos, and gas gift cards. Sees candy too!!
Burbank Sunrise and our Interact Club gave some families a happier holiday with our basket delivery Saturday. This is a community wide project where families in need are adopted and provided food, presents, and gift cards. 
For November, we conducted a Paper Drive Linden House transitional housing program. We presented them with paper products & gift cards in support of their emancipated and homeless youth.
This week’s highlight for Burbank Sunrise was DG Olivia’s Club Visit! So happy to see so many of our Interact members able to attend! Luke, one of our Interact club members, sang an a cappella version of “It Must Be Spring.” Of course our club had a masseuse present to help DG Olivia and her husband Robert destress after so many club visits! There was recognitions, fellowship, friendship, and of course, service to our community & the world. We presented Linden House, transitional housing for young adults leaving foster care, with a new vacuum as well as AMC and Dominos gift cards. We even celebrated President Juan’s birthday!!
Burbank Sunrise enjoyed an afternoon at sea on the tall ship Irving Johnson out of San Pedro full of food, fellowship, and fun!!

The bags contain pots and pans, baking sheets, utensils, kitchen towels, bathroom towels, laundry detergent, dish soap, shampoo/conditioner, body wash, toilet paper, paper towels, and toys for the kids. Our members adopted 10 families and did their best to make their new homes special.
Burbank Sunrise  Rotary was proud to be part of the project organized by Greater Van Nuys Rotary.

These duffle bags, cheerfully decorated, will provide them something These duffle bags, cheerfully decorated, will provide them something personal to put their belongings in and the bikes will give them some sense of normalcy. Thank you Shirin of Greater  Van Nuys for putting the project together!
