Making a Difference
 
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Hillcrest Sunrise!
 

We are a part of Rotary International which is a worldwide volunteer service organization of 1.2 million members with 34,000 clubs in over 220 countries.

 

Our club serves the communities of Euclid, Gates Mills, Highland Heights, Lyndhurst, Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, Richmond Heights and South Euclid.  Our 30+ members work to enrich the lives of those in need on a local and an international basis.

 

The Hillcrest-Sunrise Rotarians are an active group, dedicated to service and fellowship.  Some annual service projects include:

*The distribution of community grant funds in support of local community improvement initiatives

*Providing dictionaries for third graders in area schools

*Assembling and distributing Thanksgiving baskets for local families in need

*Delivering Meals on Wheels

*Hosting a spring picnic for special needs children and their teachers

*Escorting senior citizens to a local high school play production

*Volunteering at the Cleveland Food Bank

*Participation in volunteer opportunities through the Community Partnership on Aging

*Creation and distribution of greeting cards to hospitalized children

*Collection of educational and personal items for Children of the Dump in Nicaragua

    

Our club is also about fellowship.  Through regular and different social activities such as a progressive dinner, fall clambake, attendance at Indians’/Captains games, family bowling night and family picnic, winery tours, holiday gatherings etc. relationships are expanded and lifelong friendships are fostered.

 

To expand the services that we provide, we seek to grow our Rotary family. We look for individuals who want to give their most precious gift…the gift of time and who are persons of action.

If you have the passion, the heart and the Rotary Spirit to go beyond yourself and make a difference, please contact me. I would love to hear from you!
