Rotary Sunrise has signed Company Formation papers to become incorporated.
The club has grown up quickly and this action will help to protect it and its members for many years to come. The club has been involved in several projects – some hands-on like clearing the Mastic Trail, the beach and the bird sanctuary; some purely financial, like providing considerable funds following Hurricane Ivan and some more academic like reading with schoolchildren and coordinating and facilitating the Computer Assisted Learning System pilot programme.
Members have visited Cuba, the Bahamas, Jamaica and more recently Peru where member Dr. Bert Thacker led a team to give dental care to isolated communities on the Amazon. Fellowship events are popular too.
It has a Wine Society, games, softball and karaoke evenings and makes regular visits to various homes and restaurants.
Rotary SUNRISE was chartered on 18 April, 2002, with 32 members.
Now it has 94 members, which includes 31 ladies. The average age of the great majority is around 40 – one of the youngest Rotary clubs in the world.
Most of the members are professionals – bankers, lawyers, accountants, engineers and many others from Cayman and 21 other countries worldwide. They are early risers they meet at the Grand Old House for breakfast at 7am every Wednesday morning for meetings with a selection of local speakers.
