It’s not all work and no play for Burbank Sunrise! We had a great club outing to Descanso Gardens for the Enchanted Forest of Light show followed by dinner at Damon’s Steak House in Glendale!

Another successful event with the Burbank Kids Community Dental Clinic! Burbank Sunrise Rotary and our John Burroughs Interact Club had so much fun giving gifts, manning the free books giveaway, and the nachos and tea cake stands. There was music, volunteers from other organizations, Santa, and the Burbank Police Department. Everyone was in great spirits! What a fabulous night! Thank you to Dale Gorman and the KCDC for an awesome event! Looking forward to next year! 

What an amazing night we had spreading holiday cheer to our low income Seniors in Burbank with carolers from the John Burroughs High School Vocal Ensemble. Along with our friends at the Rotary Club of Burbank, we presented them each with a Christmas stocking filled with handwritten notes and goodies and served them dinner thanks to The Cusumano Real Estate Group. 
Sunrise Rotary was proud to award present Shanna Warren, the CEO OF the Boys and Girls Club of Burbank, with a District Grant for Termite eradication at their new site! The Club recently moved into the old Salvation Army site and they have been busy with renovations! 

Burbank Sunrise is proud to annually support the Burbank Coordinating Council with the Holiday Basket Program. Our Rotary Club and our JBHS Interact Club prepare gifts of groceries, toys, clothes, & gift cards for our adopted families. It’s an amazing feeling knowing that we can help four families who are struggling have a little better Christmas.

Burbank Sunrise was proud to present Paul Harris Fellow pins to our 2 newest members Norma and Chris as well as a Paul Harris +4 to our club president, Maye. Proud to be a 100% Paul Harris Club!

Burbank Sunrise is ON! Getting ready for our District Community Grant Project, Santa for Seniors next week! Our project aims to bring Holiday cheer to seniors who are often overlooked during the holidays, since most programs are focused more on children. Many seniors may feel isolated, but with a special gift from Santa, the holidays will feel a little more jolly.
So happy to share this event with the Burbank Noon Rotary Family as well! 

The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who have made a contribution to The Rotary Foundation. Rotary established the recognition in 1957 to encourage and show appreciation for the financial support of the many programs of Rotary.  It is an honor to be a Paul Harris Fellow. Sunrise was proud to award one Paul Harris plus 1 and three Paul Harris plus 3 pins at our breakfast meeting Tuesday. We are proud to be a 100% Paul Harris Club!!

Congratulations to Daisy whom we awarded a Rotary Vocational Scholarship! Daisy has four children and works two jobs to support her family while she goes to school to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse. There were tears of joy from her and our club members!

Congratulations to the John Burroughs Interact Club who partnered with the JBHS Animal Alliance Club to collect blankets and beds for homeless pets. Great project and a fabulous group of young people!!

Burbank Sunrise donated a carload of diapers, baby wipes, and baby soap to our Marines at Camp Pendleton as part of Rotary District 5280’s effort to assist our Marine families. Rotarians district wide collected donations at four locations to be trucked to Camp Pendleton. Thank you to Nancy Guillen of the Burbank Kiwanis morning club and Nickelodeon for adding a carload of housewares, small appliances, toys, crayons, and coloring books! 
We are so excited for our second annual Smile Bag delivery to Family Promise of the Verdugos in honor of Rotary Peace Days! We adopted six families transitioning into housing from homelessness. Our families had all endured some sort of trauma from fleeing from domestic violence to mental health illnesses. This gentleman never expected to be a homeless father but thanks to Family Promise, a new job, and our Smile bags, the future is full of hope!!
