At our regular meeting, we put together 150 dental kits for Kids Community Dental Clinic. The kits will be distributed at area schools when the Clinic does their Give Kids A Smile program. When they visit the schools, the kids are educated on the importance of good dental hygiene, given a free dental check-up, and a dental kit. If they child needs dental treatment, the clinic offers free or low cost dental services for children.
Our club is mourning the passing of Bob Piatak. He was a Past President and the club’s Sergeant-At-Arms. Bob was always the first one to every meeting and set up our banners and greeted our guests. He sat in the same place every week ordering his favorite breakfast of pancakes. He made most every project and he and Janice were fixtures at our club socials. It was very sad to see his empty seat this past Tuesday. He was one of a kind and will be greatly missed.
We pass the 4-Way Test! Our newest member, Teresa Fulper, is also our newest Paul Harris Fellow!! 
Burbank Sunrise as always had a very busy December. We teamed up with Burbank Rotary for our annual BCR Holiday Party for developmentally challenged teens and adults. We also adopted families through the Coordinating Council of Burbank to provide them with presents, gift certificates, and holiday meals and then helped on delivery day. We even had time for a little club fellowship as we attended Nativity the Musical at Westminster Presbyterian Church. Afterwards the party continued at The Burbank Pub!


The Rotary Clubs of Burbank Noon and Burbank Sunrise were in the house at the VIP reception for the Burbank Arts Beautification Program. We’re among the sponsors local artists painting city electrical boxes!! Check out our box at the corner of Hollywood Way and Riverside Drive!

Burbank Sunrise welcomed our newest member, Teresa! We are so happy she chose us to be her Rotary home and we look forward to many years of fellowship and service!

Burbank Sunrise alumni Julie Jenkins was featured in the November issue of Rotarian Magazine. Julie shared her experience having Polio. She is truly inspiring. Julie is currently a member of the Rotary Club of Cambria!

Congratulations to our own Julio Barrenzuela who was invited by Illinois Senator Dick Durbin to represent Soldiers Who Salsa at the Latino Summit! Julio continues to serve his country by providing wounded veterans valuable recreational therapy in the form of Latin Music. 
Sunrise Rotarians enjoyed an amazing night at the Taglyan Center in Hollywood raising money for the Rotary Foundation! There was great entertainment, silent and live auction items, good food, and fabulous fellowship with our friends in Rotary plus we earned money for the foundation that supports our ability to do good in the world!!

Since 2015, more than 4 million people have fled an economically devastated Venezuela. Tracking the stories of three who left puts faces on that staggering statistic.

More than a library

After the genocide of 1994, Rotarians led a successful campaign to build Rwanda’s first public library.
