The fundamental Rotary concept of “service above self” is integrated into our long-standing commitments to a wide range of issues from local community service to international humanitarian causes.
What do we do?
We are involved in programs to help youth,build stronger communities locally and around the world, and also promote business networking. Below is a listing of the many community engagement projects our club is involved with:

Community Service Projects
Local clubs are the cornerstone of Rotary, where the most meaningful work is carried out. Attending weekly club meetings allows us to enjoy fellowship, enhance our personal and professional knowledge, and meet other business leaders and professionals in our community. If we miss a meeting we are encouraged to “make up” a meeting at another club or online at the Rotary Website. Effective clubs have active members who participate regularly and willingly.
Tulare Sunrise Rotary always has an open door and is actively recruiting more members. More members equate to more community service, more fellowship, and more contributions to the important work of the Rotary.
We invite you to explore this website and feel free to say hello.
