Welcome to the Newport Beach Sunrise Rotary Club
Dear Rotarians and Visitors,
Thank you for visiting our website. We appreciate your interest in our club and in the Rotary International organization.
Newport Beach Sunrise Rotary Club is a diverse group of some 50 men and women who meet every Tuesday morning from 7:30 to 9:00 at The Five Crowns Restaurant, 3801 East Coast Highway, in Corona Del Mar. Each meeting consists of a delicious Five Crowns breakfast, an interesting speaker, great fellowship and a taste of what “Rotary” really means.
Our club is part of Rotary International, the world’s No. 1 service club, which counts over 1.2 million members located in 213 countries. The theme of this year’s Rotary International President, Sakuji Tanaka, is “Peace Through Service” reflecting his goal to mobilize the Rotarian ethic of service to enhance the opportunities for peace in the world.
The wide-ranging educational, humanitarian and community service projects performed or supported by our club include Rotary International’s signature “End Polio Now” campaign, the Wounded Warriors Battalion, the 1/1 Marines, Salvation Army – Working Wardrobes Success Day programs, AYUDA, college scholarships for local high school students, the B.S.A. Newport Sea Base, Newport-Mesa Schools Foundation and several other important charitable activities.
I invite you to explore our website or contact me or any of our other members for further information about our club. We would welcome the chance to meet you and have you share our fellowship as we work together to build better communities and a better world.
Yours in Rotary Service,
