Our speaker on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 was Brad Langsather, City of Helena Open Lands Manager.  Brad oversees the significant volume of open space land adjoining Helena, including efforts at fire fuels mitigation, which was the subject of his discussion.  In short, it takes a lot of funding, labor and constant land management to keep up with mother nature.  Comparative photos of Helena over the last 150 years were starkly revealing as to the amount of vegetation that poses fire threat to the city and surrounding areas.  Part of the mitigation effort includes slash burning as demonstrated in the photo above.
City of Helena Open Lands Manager, Brad Langsather spoke to the club regarding fire fuel mitigation efforts in the areas surrounding Helena on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.  Brad is shown above (L) with club member, Gary Carlson.

Our guest speaker for Tuesday, September 6, 2022, was Charlene Porsild (pictured above [r] with Sunrise Rotary President, Kristina Warren), President of the Rotary Club of Helena (aka "the noon club" by Sunrise Rotary members).  Charlene updated us on RCH's activities, events, meeting venues and held general conversation on Rotary causes.  We look forward to continued partnering with RCH in doing the good work of Rotary.
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Helena Sunrise, Murray Strong presents a check for $4,850 to Charlie Crawford, co-owner of the Montana Book Company, to help purchase books for the Helena Education Foundation’s Fabulous Firsts program. Also shown are Lisa Cordingly (3rd from the left), Director of the Foundation, and Chelsia Rice, co-owner of the bookstore. Under the Fabulous Firsts program, every 1st grader within the Helena School District is given their own new book. 
Jerry and Jean Coleman, both past presidents of The Rotary Club of Tarpon Springs, Florida, were visitors to the club on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.  The Colemans are touring the country and enjoying new sights and geography.  It was a pleasure having Jean and Jerry with us.  They are shown in the above photo making a banner exchange with Helena Sunrise Rotary president, Kristina Warren (r).
District Governor Barry Matthews (r) from Miles City and guests ( Lindsay Matthews and Josh Austill) joined us for our meeting on July 19th. He passed out the new pins, promoted the District Conference in Miles City and discussed the new Rotary theme “Imagine.”  Barry made a very positive impression on those present.  He encouraged all to invite someone to a meeting - the best way to improve membership strength.
