Evening Meeting On October 8
On October 8, 2019, RB Sunrise will have an evening meeting at the Country Club of RB.  This will replace the usual morning meeting.  The speaker for Oct 8 will be Keely Linton.  Keely is an Íipay and Cupeno Native from the Mesa Grande Band of Mission Indians.

Rotational Breakfast Meetings on Oct 15.
RB Sunrise Rotary will be DARK at the Country Club of RB on Oct 15.  Members will meet at the various offices of members  who have volunteered to host the rotational breakfasts.  Rick Coburn has circulated a sign up sheet at several meetings and will send out an email with instructions on how to sign up online.
The idea of Rotational Breakfasts is a return by our club to an idea that the club has done in the past.  Rotational meetings has a direct link to the very beginnings of Rotary when meetings "rotated" among the offices of the early founders of Rotary in Chicago and elsewhere.  The practice had the be abandoned when club memberships grew beyond the size that could be accommodated in member's offices. 
RB Sunrise Rotary Club holds the Rotational meetings so that we can have a time to get together and learn about each other's business or profession.  During the meetings there is also an opportunity to discuss club matters that cannot be covered in a usual Tuesday morning meeting.
