We had a hard working group of Reno Sunrise Rotarians and guests help KTMB with their Christmas Tree Recycling on Sunday, January 7, 2024.  Attendees included Lynn Clark, Jon Greene, Harvey Miller, Craig Sande, Marcy Schroder, Steve Schroder, Jim Van Winkle, and Dan Waters.  Although it was quite chilly to start, we quickly warmed up after the sun popped out.  We kept up our energy with some delicious donuts!
Last Wednesday, October 25, several club members and guests (spouses) headed out to the Foodbank of Northern Nevada Warehouse as volunteers.  The community service event was kindly arranged by Steve Schroder.
This is my third or fourth time to the foodbank's warehouse and I have found each experience unique, fun and fulfilling.  This time we were packing boxes for the Senior Nutrition & Wellness program.  We ended up packing about 11,200 lbs of food!  Time flew by as we worked to 70's rock. 
We will likely schedule another community service event at the foodbank after the holidays.  If you have never participated, please consider doing so at your next opportunity.   It is fun and helps out our community members.
Members of Reno Sunrise Rotary Club helped clean up the downtown section of the Truckee River during the Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful Annual River Cleanup on September 16.  During the three hour event a total of 25 tons of weeds and debris were removed from the river corridor from Verdi to Wadsworth.

The Biggest Little Mini Golf Derby event was held on the evening of July 27, 2023.  It was well attended and the participants enjoyed excellent sandwiches made by Pub N' Subs, drinks, and a surprisingly challenging mini golf course. 
The young and seasoned all had an enjoyable evening.  There were even a few hole-in-ones among the group. 
The proceeds of the event are going to the Desert Pigs, an off-road group that removes illegally dumped debris from our locally accessible public lands.  Our hats are off to all those who were able to participate.
All work and no play ...
We have an evening social in lieu of a morning meeting the last Friday of most months.  It is a great time to get caught up with one another in a relaxed environment.  Here are some more photographs from our May 2023 social at The Eddy.
We had a great time helping out at the Foodbank of Northern Nevada last Saturday.  During our two hours we boxed a total of 10,900 lbs of food!  We all received heartfelt thanks and bouquets of flowers to take home.  It feels good to give back to our community.
Doug and Susan Hill hosted our October 28 Social at their home that was literally On The Hill!  We enjoyed a feast prepared by Muli an d Meli Vacapuna, Carmen Quiones, and Susan Hill.  Despite a chilly start to the evening, the breeze subsided and we all had a wonderful time.
Gary Foote shared a photo of a plaque going up at the Eddy House to thank the Reno Sunrise Rotary Club for the bunk bed project we carried out this year.  They are very appreciative.  In addition to the increased capacity, their clients are more comfortable as well.
We had fun serving beer and wine to attendees of the 35th Bowers Mansion Bluegrass Festival August 19-20.  Serving for our club included Steve Bamberger, Jim Van Winkle, Carolyn Abend, Lynn Clarke, Craig Sande, Doug Hill, and Harvey Miller.  Jon and Martha Greene were busy running the main show as members of the Northern Nevada Bluegrass Association.
The Biggest Little Mini Golf Challenge was a great success, meaning that it was fun and provided an opportunity to socialize with members, guests and Rotarians from other local clubs in the Reno area.  We will definitely do this next year!
On July 30, Reno Sunrise Rotarians completed the final step of the Eddy House Project - assembling the bunk beds and lag bolting them to the floor.  With collaboration between the Eddy House, Rotary Club of Reno Sunrise, and FedEx, the drop in room capacity has been expanded giving youth a more comfortable place to sleep.
