We welcomed Jimmy Weldon to our club as we honored our nation’s heroes and those who lost their lives on 9/11. He shared stories of the origin of the Star Spangled Banner and why our great flag means so much to us. We also celebrated his 95th birthday! Jimmy is truly a national treasure.
Burbank Sunrise Rotary will be honoring 9/11 with a special presentation by Jimmy Weldon. You might not recognize his face, but if you’re old enough, you’d remember his voice from the popular TV cartoon show Yogi Bear. He was Yakky Doodle, the talking duck, in the Hanna-Barbera series that ran from 1962 to 1964. At Tuesday’s meeting, he will bring Old Glory to life as we honor those who lost their lives on that fateful September morning. We meet Tuesday at 7:15AM at the Holiday Inn in Burbank. Come join us!!
The first of our 4 Little Libraries has been installed at Mountain View Park!! Thanks in part to a Rotary District 5280 Grant, we were able to build and fully stock four little libraries!! The other three are soon coming to Lundigan Park, Vickroy Park, and Johnny Carson Park. The libraries will feature book geared towards children and young adults. It is our sincere hope that these libraries will encourage children and families to read. Thanks to our partners the Rotary Club of Burbank Noon and The Literacy Club! A special thank to the City of Burbank Parks & Recreation and Library Departments for helping us make it happen!!

Club members donated bicycles to the Bike Angel program. In Burbank, the Bike Angels are a group of mostly city employees who refurbish bikes during the year to help insure kids in need get a bicycle. In addition to haunting garage sales during the year for used bikes, members also donate any shortfall of bikes to ensure every child that asked for one, gets one. This is in conjunction with the Salvation Army Angel Tree program where community members take tags from trees in various locations in the city and fulfill requests. Then members volunteered on distribution day when food, toys, and bikes are given to needy families. Smiles like this one are what its all about!!
The club adopted 4 families at the Coordinating Council Holiday basket program. This is a community wide event. Each of our families received food and gifts for each member of the family. Club members also volunteered on distribution day delivering baskets to needy families.
The Burbank Noon and Sunrise Rotary Clubs had a huge turnout to the annual BCR Christmas Party! Each year we host a dinner and Christmas party for developmentally disabled teens and adults in our area complete with gifts and Santa Claus.
Burbank Sunrise proudly sponsored and served approximately 3,000 people at the annual Salvation Army Community Thanksgiving dinner. Our Rotaract and Interact members served and bussed tables while members dished up the food consisting of turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing, gravy, and rolls.
Burbank Sunrise is a proud supporter of Wellness Works and Not On Our Watch 2017! Not On Our Watch brings awareness to the community of the veterans who lose their battle with PTSD. From September 20th through the 23rd, Veterans stood watch on the Colorado Bridge in Pasadena, 24 hours a day. As veterans stood or walked posts on the bridge, they wore a dog tag that represented a veteran who was being remembered/honored. Club members made donations and attended the opening ceremony. One of our veteran members, Juan Guillen, participated in the vigil. On September 20th, the opening ceremony will begin at 10am. On September 23rd, the closing ceremony will begin at 10am where we honor all our fallen.
