On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, we heard from Jayme Klehfoth, shown above with Sunrise Rotary member, Greg Duncan, about the upcoming Walk for Alzheimer's fundraiser on Saturday, September 8, 2018.  Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. and currently cannot be prevented, cured or slowed.  The upcoming walk supports the Alzheimer's Association, which is is a global organization, working to advance care, support and research across the world to treat this awful disease. From face-to-face support to online education programs and promising worldwide research initiatives, the money raised makes a difference in the lives of those facing Alzheimer's.  Volunteers are encouraged to walk in support of the fundraising and/or support other walkers by sponsorship.

Our speaker for April 17, 2018 was our April Trivia partner, WorldMontana®   World Montana is an affiliate of the National Council for International Visitors (NCIV) based in Washington, D.C. It is one of 88 U.S. non-profit centers dedicated to promoting global understanding through citizen diplomacy. One of the ways they try to foster global understanding is by facilitating the International Visitor Leadership Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. In Montana, they host approximately 150 international leaders through this program each year.  Pictured above are Sasha Fendrick, Executive Director and Sunrise Rotary member and District Governor Elect, Rick Moore.
Our speaker on April 10, 2018 was Keri Yoder with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network.  ACSCAN works to end suffering and death from cancer in every state and over 100 communities across the country. From state legislatures to local city councils and county commissions, ACSCAN is working to pass laws and regulations that move us closer to the day when no one has to hear those three scary words, "You have cancer."
Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.  Working through local micro-lenders throughout the world, KIVA assists entrepreneurs with loans as small as $25.  Carroll College’s Sigma Beta Delta club sponsors a KIVA chapter in Helena.  SBD representative, Caroline Crapo and Faculty Advisor, Belle Marie spoke to the club about KIVA’s good work.  At conclusion of the meeting, Sunrise Rotary Club President, Dan McLean, presented Caroline with a check from the club for $90 which represents 4th quarter 2017 donations from club members to support SBD’s KIVA chapter’s work.  Great program!  Thanks Sigma Beta Delta!
The Helena YWCA's new Executive Director, Monica Lindeen, pictured here with member, Dewey Bruce, spoke to the club about the Y's current events at the meeting Tuesday, February 13.  The YWCA was also our Trivia partner on Thursday, February 15, in which over $800 was raised (top picture!)  Great turn out for the Y!
District 5390 Governor-Elect, Rick Moore receives a Paul Harris +2 award from Club President, Dan McLean at our meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2017.  Thanks Rick, for your dedication to Rotary and its causes - more to come during your time as District Governor!

Keys to Trivia success

Russ Cargo, Gary Williams (standing), Jock Palmquist and Gary Carlson are great examples of the leaders we have in our club.  In this shot, they take a moment away from tallying Trivia Night scores to smile for the camera during another successful fund-raising night.

Court Appointed Special Advocates

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Lewis & Clark and Broadwater Counties Co-Executive Director, Pam Young, was our speaker on Tuesday, January 16, 2018.  Pam explained: The mission of CASA is to provide volunteer guardians to work on behalf of abused and neglected children to promote their best interests in the pursuit of safe, permanent homes.  Drug abuse is a huge driver of the need to have someone who listens to children who have been removed from the home and then advocates for them through legal proceedings.  Children with CASA advocates spend less time in foster care, do better in school and are less likely to be bounced from home to home.  They are half as likely to re-enter foster care.  Club member, Alice Hinshaw, pictured above (L) with Pam has recently joined CASA as an advocate.  Thank you Pam and Alice!!
