Club News
Our Stillwater Sunrise Rotary club supported a global grant project originated by the Northfield Rotary club with a $1,000 grant.  Vicki Dilley sent along this wonderful progress report (note the link for photos):

Dear Partners,
Clean drinking water will soon be available to many folks in Nyamuswa, Tanzania because of your work on the Rotary Global Grant Water Project. 
 
So much of the credit goes to Moses who has kept this project on track and moving forward as fast as possible. He knows how important water is to this community.  Asante Sana, Moses! Moses has been great at sending photos of phase I. Phase II should commence this week. Trenches have been hand dug, solar panels assembled, raised platforms for water tanks have been built.  Enjoy viewing these photos and videos.  I will put more in this shared file, as they come in. 
 
Have a great day, Vicki

On St. Croix 360 we read "Over winter break, Ray Valley, Kii’s winter-season host father took him ice fishing. 'It was on the river. I can’t believe it! I was surprised.' Kii said, 'There were a lot of people and tents for ice fishing. That was so cool!' Kii was the only one getting any bites which included a sturgeon (pictured above) and a mudpuppy." You can read the whole story here on St. Croix 360.
Thirty members of Stillwater Sunrise Rotary and two SAHS foreign exchange students recently packed 6,546 meals at Meals from the Heart. Those meals stay in the St. Croix River Valley community and beyond to provide meals to families in need.  Additionally, they go to serve families of the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Network.
 
Meals from the Heart is located in Stillwater, Minnesota, and brings volunteers together to serve their neighbors through easy-to-execute, energized and fun meal-packing events.  The events build relationships and strengthen communities while providing flavorful, fortified meals to local food shelves.

Additionally, some members of Sunrise Rotary wore the red hairnet in addition to a grey mask due to their beards striking an early Christmas Santa Clause look.
