Bishop Sunrise Rotarian John Loomis helping to install one our new "brand-compliant" Rotary signs on the North entrance to Bishop (off Hwy 6).  John's nephew Dean assisted and took this picture!
Another sign at the other North entrance to town (off Sierra Highway near the former veterinarian building) that Bishop Sunrise Rotarians John Loomis and Ed Morse installed.  Thanks guys!
We had a special offsite, outdoor meeting and tour on September 7, 2022, at Laws Railroad Museum and Historic Site. The weather cooperated and the morning temps were delightful. The meeting started with a bell ringing, as usual, but it was the bell of the #9 Slim Princess train! Many thanks to Bishop Sunrise Rotarians (and Laws volunteers) Jay Smart and Sarah Sheehan, and Laws administrator Raven Angeles, who put everything together for our special visit. What a treat!
On August 31st, we had an evening social event at Millpond in lieu of our regular morning meeting (which was dark per the club's practice of not meeting on "fifth Wednesdays").  Several members of the Bishop Rotary Club (the noon club) also attended, which added to the fun.  We had games, including a really fun trivia game put together by John Loomis where four teams competed for prizes, and lots of great potluck food.  
Bishop Sunrise Rotarian John Helm presenting our club’s banner to PDG Michelle O’Brien, who was filling in and leading the Ketchikan First City club’s meeting on August 4, 2022. John is in Alaska for the summer, sailing his boat. Incidentally, our club is planning on redesigning our trading banner this year.
Dr. Arndal and Dr. Kim delivered two babies by c-section with the resident physician in the newly rehabilitated operating room and installed pessaries in a dozen women.

The Rotary Club of Bishop Sunrise is looking for students from our area interested in applying for scholarships to pursue their graduate studies abroad. Through the Rotary Global Grant Scholarship program, students in our area and across the nation can receive up to $32,000 to offset the costs of graduate work, in particular areas of study, for no less than one and no more than four years in a foreign country. The scholar’s area of study, professional goals, and previous work or volunteer experience must strongly align with one of Rotary International’s Seven Areas of Focus, which are: 
  • Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution
  • Disease Prevention and Treatment
  • Water and Sanitation
  • Maternal and Child Health
  • Basic Education and Literacy
  • Economic and Community Development
  • Supporting the Environment
