Jaymie Shaldahl (left) and Erica Vallance (center) of the Helena Head Start Program are shown here with club member, Gary Carlson.  Jaymie and Erica gave the club background and update on Head Start's impact on Helena and surrounding communities.  Finding endless opportunities for funding, Head Start will be our Trivia fund-raising partner this coming Thursday, January 17, 6:00 PM at the Staggering Ox Restaurant.  Jaymie and Erica have created expanded posters and have explored options to maximize the amount of funds that may be raised on Thursday.  Head Start is a wonderful Sunrise Rotary partner!!
Michele Steele (left) is officially welcomed as member of The Rotary Club of Helena, Sunrise, by District Governor, Rick Moore and Sunrise President, Michelle Vanisko.  Michele brings a rich history in Rotary having been a member of the Rotary Club of Helena (the "noon" club), including service as Past President.  Work scheduling makes Sunrise an option for Michele to continue her Rotary service.  Welcome, Michele!!
Gary Williams presents a check to Monica Lindeen, Executive Director of the Helena YWCA (and Sunrise Rotary Club member) representing proceeds from a successful Trivia night partnership between the "Y" and Sunrise Rotary.
Guest Pat Seiler (shown here with club member, Russ Cargo) presented a very informative and entertaining program on "The History of Luggage."  Pat led us through the evolution of the bags we all use for travel, pointing out that we put a man on the moon in 1969, but did not put wheels on suitcases until 1972!  Thanks, Pat!
Deb Halliday, board chair for the Holter Museum of Art, spoke to the club on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, about current and upcoming events at the museum.  Helena is truly fortunate to have an art center of the Holter's caliber and it was a pleasure to hear Deb's positive presentation.  Club members, Russ Cargo (left) and Tony Perpignano (not shown), are both Holter board members.
On November 29, another successful Trivia fundraising night was held in Townsend, MT in partnership with the Townsend Rotary Club.  Over $1,400 was raised to help fund a Townsend Interact trip to Guatemala.  Over 70 community members turned out to share the fun.  Great job, Townsend and Sunrise members, Gary Williams, Greg Duncan, Rick Moore and Carol Wilcox!
Kalli Kind, Director of Support Services for the Helena Public School system, pictured (R) with club member, Tony Perpignano, gave us an update of the construction and ongoing maintenance needs of the large physical infrastructure of our local school system at our meeting on November 27.
Club member, Gary Williams (L) enjoys a laugh with Helena Mayor, Wilmont Collins at our November 13, 2018 meeting.  Mayor Collins discussed a broad range of subjects concerning the city of Helena, its operations, its future and its management as well as fielding several questions from members.  Thanks Mayor Collins!
Club member and President-Elect, Murray Strong presents a check to Mary DuVernay, Executive Director of the Lewis & Clark Literacy Council.  The Literacy Council is one of our Trivia Night fundraising partners and the check represents another successful and fun evening for both organizations.
Club members, Dewey Bruce (top) and Gary Williams complete installation of book drops for the North Jefferson County Library on October 25, 2018.  NJCL was a beneficiary of a Rotary District Grant and is near and dear to a number of club members who live in the immediate area.  Thanks Dewey and Gary!!
