The District Governor, Joe Vasquez, visited our club this morning. We opened the meeting with four young men from the award winning John Burroughs HS Vocal Music Association singing our National Anthem. Governor Joe talked to us about his connection to Rotary and how he became a member. He also reminded us that our collective support of the Rotary Foundation ensures the financial viability of doing projects both locally and globally. He presented our two newest Paul Harris Fellows, Mindy Brandt and Chris Thomas, their pins and plaques. Ian Waterhouse was awarded his Paul Harris Plus 6. Ian is a Paul Harris Society member. Our club is proud that 100% of our members are Paul Harris Fellows!!

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.
