Rotary’s main objective is service – in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe. The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.
Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.

Dec. 10, 2015 - During District Governor Beth Stubb's official club visit, five Sunrise Rotarians became first-time Paul Harris Fellows including Lewis Kearny, Ty Young, Jim Phiropoulos, Tom Crye and Rick Creasy. Congratulations to these men for their financial commitment to The Rotary Foundation.
Oct. 7, 2015 - The new Greenway restroom, a partnership between Bradley Sunrise and Cleveland noon Rotary clubs, is nearing completion! All that remains on the construction is a few last-minute details. Two connecting sidewalks to the greenway are awaiting cooperative weather, so until then it must remain locked to the public. If you have not had a chance to take a look, feel free to drive by. The roof was chosen to represent Rotary blue! Both clubs are looking forward to a day in the near future when they can gather for a formal ribbon-cutting!
RI President K.R. Ravindran chose "Be a Gift to the World" as his theme for 2015-16. Ravindran urges Rotary members to give the gifts of time, talent, and knowledge to improve lives in communities across the globe. “Through Rotary, we can take these gifts and make a genuine difference in the lives of others and in our world.”
BSR Schedule Update: Now meeting at the Cleveland Elks Lodge.
Thank you to everyone that came out and supported the 2015 Bradley Sunrise Rotary Gala with Tom Glavine! The funds will go to support many worthy organizations.
