Easter Sunday, April 9, the Rotary Club of Toronto Sunrise, Toastmasters and friends prepared 120 hot meals at the Fort York Food Bank for our homeless and marginally housed neighbors.
 
Supporting the Fort York Food Bank has long been one of our most exciting volunteer opportunities.
 
Coldest Night of the Year - a walk on the night of February 28th, 2022 was a great opportunity to raise funds.  We're delighted that our small but mighty club managed to raise $2, 045.  All thanks to our Team Members:  Mary Lou Harrison, Jim Louttit, Nitin Sharma, Ana Lankarani and of course our trusty mascot:  Stompin' Teddy.
 
 
March 23, 2021:   F.B. Fetherstonhaugh (a patent lawyer), William Still (an engineer) and John Dixon (a carriage builder), all of Toronto, built Canada's first electric car and first ran it around the track at the “Exhibition” in 1893.  Gasoline took over in the 20th century, and we're just getting back now.
 
April 10, 2021: The Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup has been postponed due to Covid, and Rotarians are encouraged to do their own garbage pickup in smaller and safe groups.  Mary Lou Harrison of Toronto Sunrise (and also Past District Governor of District 7070) took her father, Don Foster of the Rotary Club of Toronto West out to Tim Horton's Saturday.  While in a nearby park, they got a head start on the Cleanup - he pointed with his cane and she picked up garbage. It was a good example of inter club co-operation between Rotary Toronto Sunrise and Rotary Toronto West :)
The Rotary Club of Toronto Sunrise would like to thank everyone who supported this year's Rotary AIDS & Community Health Walk.  For those who organized teams, walked, or donated - an especial, heartfelt "Thank You!"
 
We are delighted to confirm that we reached our goal of $1000 - pretty good for a small Club!
 
Funds raised by our club will go to the Africans in Partnership Against AIDS charitable organization (75%)  and the Stephen Lewis Foundation (25%)
 
Stompin' Teddy and Paddy thoroughly enjoyed their walk around our lovely city - and look forward to seeing you in 2022 - hopefully face to face!
