Sunrise club celebrates 20 years

The Davis Sunrise Rotary Club will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this November, quite a milestone for the 73-member club.

Serious discussion about forming a second club in Davis actually began in 1989 in the Rotary Club of Davis, which had been the only club in town since 1926.

But it took five years from discussion to formation as the noontime club assisted in launching the new morning club with several of its own members. The first meeting of the provisional Sunrise club, formally known as Rotary Club of Davis, Sunrise, was held on Aug. 12, 1994.

Four months later, on Nov. 10, 1994, the Rotary Club of Davis, Sunrise, received its official charter from Rotary International, becoming one of 27,044 Rotary clubs worldwide located in 150 countries with a global membership of 1,193,000 Rotarians.

Starting with 32 charter members, the Sunrise club now has a diverse membership of 73 men and women in which no one business, profession or type of community service predominates and which strives to be representative of our community.

Over the past two decades, the Sunrise Club enthusiastically has had a successful journey of service in Rotary, which continues forward to this day under the club’s 2014 long-range plan. To learn more about Rotary, visit the club at 6:50 a.m. Fridays at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St., Davis. Visitors and Rotarians from across the world are welcome.
