The Rotary Club of Norwest Sunrise is a passionate and active group of community minded local business people committed to making a difference.

As well as conducting Rotary business, we get a lot a lot of value from our friendships. There is a great feeling of camaraderie – we are like one big family! Our members are a healthy mix of both men and women from various industries and professions. All of us still work and are active in the community, so if you have an image that Rotary is made up of elderly, silver haired gentlemen, put it to the back of your mind and let us surprise you!

We love having visitors and showcasing what we do for the local community and overseas, and over the past few months have increased our membership. As a club, we are always looking to make a positive difference both locally and across the globe through fundraising, service and connection with our local community. We have some exciting projects we are working on, so come and visit to learn more and let us know if being involved interests you.

Singer Bob Marley who had a melanoma on his toe and refused treatment provided a sobering study case.
Every 30 minutes someone in Australia is told they have a cancerous Melanoma.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.

It was very exciting to get back to face to face meetings today … after a very long break. It was a great presentation by business expert Jane Tweedy. It was also the first time President Mercedes could welcome us all to a meeting after four months of online “Brady bunch” screens. #ServiceAboveSelf ... See MoreSee Less

It took 4 changes of date due to Covid restrictions but we finally manage to have a change over dinner last night.

After 4 months of doing the job President Mercedes Durante was finally presented with her Chains of office.

There were also Paul Harris Fellowship awards presented to a very surprised Cherelyn Suzuki and Dennis and Flavia Riva for their tireless work. Well deserved awards.

Our guest speaker Tamkin Hankin spoke about her own journey from Afghanistan as a seven-year-old refugee and spoke movingly about the plight of Afghan refugees at this time.

We were so happy that she went away with basket full baskets full of items for the newly arrived refugees plus $1000 worth of gift cards from the Hills Rotaract club and $1500 worth of gift cards from Woolworths thanks to great work by Deb Salked.

It was also a time to applaud Deb Manson and Robert Bredin for their remarkable support of the Rotary Foundation with PHF recognition.

Past President Bev Jordan reflected on the 2020 Year, which despite Covid saw the establishment of the Hills Older Men’s Network , a proud achievement for Norwest Sunrise Rotary club but in particular for member Ron Parnell.

Nearly $25,000 was also donated to local charities and overseas and Rotary projects.

Other Figures to feature during 20/21 were:
🙌 500 hand sanitises distributed to 4 organisations.
🚢 A container full hospital beds and medical equipment sent to the Solomon Islands.
💯 100 years of Rotary and 20 years of Rotary Norwest
🌲170 Christmas tree sold
🥪1264 Bunnings sausages sold
🖥 49 meetings - 26 of them online
🙎🏻‍♀️🙍🏼‍♂️over 40 guest speakers

There was a special Norwest Club Award to Robert Bredin for the amount of time and energy he has given to so many clubs and Rotary International, and for upholding the Rotary value of “service above self”.

A huge thank you to Sumi and Arun at Kashi Indian Restaurant for an amazing night .
