This Week's Program In a Glance:
"Back to School at Thornton Elementary"
This morning, our Sunrise Rotary Club meeting was held at Thornton Elementary School, the AISD school our Club has "adopted" in so many ways. While the meeting was basically a normal meeting with announcements and other regular items, the "program" was our opportunity to help out the teachers set up their classrooms and other tasks as needed.
Next week, we'll be back at Rolling Hills Country Club. We have three relatively new members who will be giving their Classification Talk to the membership in order for us to get to know them a bit better.
August 25 Classification Talks - Michael Veader, Andrew Walley, Ray Carrick

HOW EASY IS IT TO HAVE PERFECT ATTENDANCE?
LET ME COUNT THE WAYS!
Did you know there are several ways in which you can have "perfect attendance" in Rotary,
even when you miss one of our regularly scheduled meetings?
Sure, it's called a
"MAKE UP". Here are a few ways you can obtain a "make up" for when
you have to miss a Sunrise Rotary meeting:
- Go to: https://www.rotaryeclubone.org/programs.htm and watch a video or read an article.
- Attend a Sunrise Rotary social event. (Christmas party and other Sunrise social gatherings)
- Work on a Sunrise Rotary project (flags,PhasedIn, Blood drive, Highland games, etc.)
- Attend a Sunrise Rotary Board meeting. (1st Tuesday, 7:00 a.m., David's BBQ)
- If you're in a travel status, get the Rotary Club Finder app for your smartphone and find a Club in/near the town you are visiting - even outside of the United States!
- Attend another local Rotary Club meeting. There are seven other Rotary Clubs in Arlington
- that you can make up at. Here's a list of them:
- Arlington North Rotary, Monday at Noon, Texas Land & Cattle, N. Arlington
- Arlington West Rotary, Tuesday at Noon, Shady Valley Golf Club
- Arlington Highlands Rotary, Tuesday at 6 p.m., Dave & Busters in the Highlands
- Arlington Sunset Rotary, Tuesday at 6 p.m., J. Gilligan's on E. Abram
- Arlington Rotary, Thursday at Noon, 1st United Methodist Church
- Arlington Great Southwest Rotary, Thursday at 6 p.m., Humperdink's @ 6 Flags
- Arlington South Rotary, Friday at Noon, Spring Creek BBQ, S. Cooper
Here's the catch:
You literally have a whole month in order to work your "make up" into
your busy schedule - within 2 weeks prior to the meeting you will miss
and within 2 weeks after the meeting you miss.
So you see, there really is no valid excuse
for you not having PERFECT ATTENDANCE.
Starting in July, we will be publishing the attendance results for our
Sunrise Rotary Club here in the e-Sunriser. Let's show the District and the Rotary world that we are ROTARIANS, not just members of Rotary!
