Sunrise Rotary scholarship applications for graduating seniors are now available -- click here to download (or in the left-hand Links menu).  Instructions for submitting are on the form!
In light of our public-health responsibilities around the COVID-19 outbreak, the board of the Bishop Sunrise Rotary club has decided to postpone our Earth Day Celebration.  The event will tentatively be held in conjunction with the Bishop Summer Kickoff celebration in the City Park, scheduled for 20 June. 
 
Each of us should remember to celebrate the Earth in our own way on April 22, but we let's save the public celebration for summer!
We are excited to announce our International Feast Wine Auction -- the Instant Wine Cellar Raffle!  This year our wines were hand-selected by professional buyers from California's famous Napa region, including wines you simply cannot buy in stores! 
 
Tickets will be available during Saturday's dinner, and a winner will be announced towards the end of the evening!
Dinner, dancing, silent auction, wine cellar raffle--this is our major fundraiser of the year to assist families, schools, students, and other local and global projects aimed at making the world a better, kinder, more peaceful place. Our dinner this year will focus on Italian cuisine, honoring the place of study for one of our exchange students from Bishop. Vegetarian options available. Signature cocktail at the no-host bar will be limoncello. Tables of 8 will include a free bottle of Italian wine. Tickets are going fast, over half are sold so don't delay! This event has sold out every year!
 
We had a wonderful visit with three local youth leaders last week. Bishop High School Seniors Scott Hennarty (red shirt), Cristofer Ruiz Sandoval and Emily Batcheller spoke to us of the great experiences they each had at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awakening camp at Grizzly Creek Ranch near Portola, CA in February. In addition to being a great outdoor camp experience, RYLA offers students an opportunity to grow as individuals and as leaders in their schools and communities. Along the way they also built communication and problem-solving skills. Scott, Cristofer and Emily shared stories about their adventures in rock climbing and on a confidence building ropes course and the fun of making new lasting friendships without the presence of cell phones!
 
 
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.

For the second year in a row, Sunrise Rotary sponsored the Bishop Summer Kickoff, a celebration of summer fun, community and Bishop's cultural diversity.  This year's roundup featured local musicians, performances from the AkyMya dancers of the Bishop Paiute Tribe, the Susuaduumu Tanugadu Ribbon Dancers from the Big Pine Paiute Tribe, and traditional dances from Bishop's Gujarati community.  Thanks to over 40 local businesses for donations to our raffle, and to all the volunteers who showed up to help!
