So much fun at our annual Christmas Party for the clients of BCR A Place to Grow. Burbank Noon and Burbank Sunrise host a Dinner each year for developmentally disabled adults and teens. They enjoyed a lasagna, salad, salad, and bread dinner with ice cream for dessert! Pic the Elf came and there was singing and dancing until Santa arrived. Every client of BCR, approximately 150 people, get a present from Santa selected from a wish list they provide. Rotarians purchase and wrap the gifts as well as the dinner which is prepared by Handy Market. We truly is event benefits the Rotarians as much as the clients. They have such unmitigated joy that it warms our hearts too. 
This year our club used District Grant funds to assist Kids Community Dental Clinic.  We purchased bags, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss for approximately 1500 dental kits to be given to children as part of the Give Kids A Smile days at local elementary schools.

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!!
