Over the weekend we held our annual Earth Day event. What a fantastic weekend with delicious food, musicians and lots of vendors. Here are a few snapshots of the day!
Just last week, we held our 2023 Rotary Foundation Dinner. 🥂 This event celebrates the good work of the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.  It is a joint event sponsored by the Bishop, Bishop Sunrise, and Mammoth Lakes Rotary clubs. 

We were honored to have our keynote speaker, Steve Lewis, a Past District Governor and Former District Foundation Chair.  District Governor, Jeff Gabriel, spoke as well and presented Foundation recognitions such as Paul Harris Fellows one of them given to his sister, Marlene Gabriel.
It's that time of the year! The Rotary Club of Bishop Sunrise is proud to be organizing Earth Day 2023 on Saturday April 22nd. We will again be collaborating with Inyo Council of The Arts to offer childrens' art along with more musicians. We hope you will join us in the fun this year as a vendor or exhibitor in the Bishop City Park. Last year was a busy one with dozens of booths and hundreds of visitors and participants in the park and we are planning for big turnout again in 2023.  You can expect strong visitor traffic stopping by your booth or table. 
This year, we would like to encourage all booths to tie in their booth with the concept of Earth Day. Whether that be a fun earthy game, earth-friendly centerpieces..etc etc..have fun with it! 


If you would like to reserve a vendor/booth space, please email, call or text the contact information provided below in this post. Each vendor is responsible for tables, chairs, and tenting. The fee for a 12x12 foot space is $30, unchanged from last year’s rate.
As soon as you submit your application, I will then send you a short summary on some general information for parking, bathrooms, and a few directions. 


Deadline for registration is Monday, April 10.
