Our speaker today (via Zoom videoconferencing) was Liann Meyers of MT Supporting Soldiers (https://mtsupportingmilitary.org/).  Liann is highlighted in yellow in the meeting screenshot above.  Liann described how teams of volunteers gather and mail care packages to U.S. soldiers deployed around the world.  Recipients express great appreciation for the "small" items in life that we take for granted - healthy snack bars, socks, gift cards, boxer-briefs, toothbrushes, toothpicks, toothpaste, deodorants, small batteries and much more (see website.)  Liann has been a driving force behind MTSS for several years.  For opportunities to help, please visit the "Contact Us" section of the website or call Liann directly at 406-431-7699.
District Governor, Sandy Carlson, was our speaker (by Zoom video conference) on Tuesday, October 27, 2020.  Sandy spoke about Rotary International and District 5390 actions and events.  She invited interaction and questions from members and is interested in learning more detail about Sunrise Rotary's Trivia Night Fundraisers (currently on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic health restrictions on group gatherings.)  Thanks, Sandy!
Speakers today were Liane Taylor and Charlotte Snyder from the Helena area "Let Freedom Ring".  Let Freedom Ring is a group of individuals who recently arranged for a community gathering on 80 acres in the Helena valley.  The event's goal was to be a family friendly, non-partisan, non-political gathering focused on freedom in a time of great divisiveness.  Funded by a multitude of donors, it featured musicians, food vendors and a fireworks show.  Charlotte stressed that an additional goal was to give children and youth an opportunity to have fun in a safe setting, away from the stresses society is currently experiencing.
Our next meeting will be Tuesday, October 13, 2020, 7:00 AM, at Perkins Restaurant (following all Health Department and Perkin's safety rules) for those attending in person.  Alternatively, a Zoom connection will be available for those who may not be able to attend in person.  For Zoom participation, please e-mail or text Brad Lancaster at mtnhkrmt@yahoo.com - 406-449-3942.
Our next scheduled meeting will be Tuesday, September 29, 2020, at Perkins Restaurant in Helena.  The meeting will be both in-person and via Zoom.  For information on joining by Zoom, please contact Brad Lancaster at: mtnhkrmt@yahoo.com.  Guest are VERY welcome - just walk in - we meet in the "south" meeting room.  Current planning is for meetings every other Tuesday morning.  See you there!
Judge James Reynolds continued his presentation on Treatment Court in Lewis and Clark County for our program on Tuesday, September 15, 2020.  The program was so riveting that our photographer and story updater forgot to take a photo for the website.  Darn!  It was a great presentation and incredibly informative and interesting.  Thank you Judge Reynolds and may you have a wonderful retirement!
Our speaker this coming Tuesday, September 15, 2020, will be District Court Judge Jim Reynolds with a continuation of his initial speaking engagement at our meeting on August 25, 2020.  Judge Reynolds' initial discussion was very interesting and there were lots of questions from attendees.  As a result, he was asked to speak more about Drug Court in Lewis and Clark and Broadwater Counties and some of his observations about drug usage and its impact on the justice system (and society in general.)  Please join us in person at Perkins Restaurant at 7:00 AM (following all current health department and Perkins Restaurant rules/guidelines) OR by Zoom meeting.  For information about how to attend by Zoom, please e-mail Brad Lancaster at mtnhkrmt@yahoo.com.  See you on Tuesday, September 15th?
Helena Sunrise Rotary will be meeting at 7:00 AM, Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at Perkins Restaurant.  If you are unable to attend in person, please contact Brad Lancaster at mtnhkrmt@yahoo.com or by call/text 406-449-3942 to obtain a link for Zoom video access.  Guests very welcome!  Social distancing and Perkins Restaurant restrictions will be in place.
Helena Sunrise Rotary will be meeting next on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, at 7:00 AM at Perkins Restaurant.  Our speaker will be club member, Rick Moore, who will be giving a classification talk about his profession in the realm of handling nuclear material.  Common sense distancing and the rules of the restaurant will be followed, but table arrangements allow for the club to meet in nearly normal circumstances.  For those who cannot make it in person, a Zoom video conference connection is available - to obtain a link to the meeting via Zoom, please contact Brad Lancaster by e-mail at mtnhkrmt@yahoo.com.
