ImageWe welcome you to our Sunrise Rotary Website! 


Hi, I'm Clayton Cubbage, the Sunrise Rotary Club President.


If you are looking for a group of hardworking professionals who care deeply about their fellow Rotarians and their community, then Sunrise Rotary is for you.  It is truly like having breakfast with your extended family every Thursday morning at Elmcrest Country Club.  As the Thursdays pass by with one amazing speaker after another, you might find yourself wondering, how did we accomplish so much while having so much fun?

El Salvador Kids

Sunrise is supporting and partnering with Daybreak Rotary for their El Salvador International project. I am very excited to have the opportunity to support and partner with a successful local club, while at the same time achieving our club goal of participating in an international project.

Our club has responded to Member's giving and provided a match for this project.

Follow Sean's year in Spain on his blog.   

Sean's October 9 entries and pictures were about his birthday celebration.  See photo here with his Host Parents.  His September posts and photos of the mountains and views, plus a festival parade are spectacular.

I have been meaning to push this message to all of you, but I wanted to just say how great it was to see the interest there is within our Sunrise Rotary Club about the Blue Zones Project. I think that Kim Jass (Marion East Rotarian) did a remarkable job talking about the project, and I really do hope that you learned a lot from her. Kim is a full-time employee with the YMCA in Marion, and is a volunteer for the Blue Zones Project. She does this purely out of passion for the initiative, which is the same reason I love being involved with the project.

There are so many simple things that we can do every day to make ourselves healthier. Some as simple as taking the stairs over the elevator; or parking further away from the doors at a store. It’s so easy for people to neglect their health because they are so busy.

"On behalf of Rotary International President Ron D Burton, and his wife Jetta, I want to welcome you to Rotary District 5970. Located in the northern one half of Iowa with 54 clubs, we have nearly 2900 inspired Rotarians. The makeup of the District ranges from clubs almost 100 years old, to a recently chartered New Generations club."

"President Burton’s theme for 2013-2014 “Engage Rotary-Change lives” is so simple, yet so powerful!  The dictionary states that engage means, employ, occupy, involve, engross, absorb, take part, or appoint.  What does it mean to you!"


Meet our District Governor, John Bender; just Click here for more information.

When we realize what we can achieve in Rotary – when we really engage Rotary – that’s when lives change. We change the lives of the people who need us. That is inevitable. And along the way, our lives are changed as well. That is also inevitable. That’s what our theme is all about in 2013-14: Engage Rotary, Change Lives.

It’s time to open our eyes to the potential each of us has through Rotary. Rotary lets us reach higher, do more, and be a part of something larger than ourselves. No matter how much we give to Rotary, we get more in return. And that, too, is inevitable.
