75th Annual CTV Lion’s Christmas Telethon
Sunrisers Jeff Shrigley, Kris Cacciotti, Tina Senese and Giorgio Lagana helped out at the telethon on Saturday - answering phones from 9-11pm and (in Giorgio’s case) doing a number of hockey jersey swaps for charity. The Sunrisers also made a $1000 donation on behalf of the Rotary Club of Sudbury Sunrisers. 
And for those of you who aren’t aware, Sunriser Sandi Campbell hosted the telethon with Peter Mallette, circa 1980-81? Yes, she was once young. 
Nutrition for the Mission
Volunteers are still needed this Wednesday for the NUTRITION FOR the MISSION project at Chris’s Independent! Sunrisers will encourage shoppers to purchase $10, $20 or $50 bags of food used to prepare meals at the Elgin St. Mission. Contact Barb if you can help out.
Giving Hearts
On Thursday this week, Sunriser Matt Bonin will join Sunriser Dawn Condon at Connected Living Yoga and Wellness for a free coffee chat at 1:00pm. The topic of conversation is “Finding Hope - Moving from Darkness to Light.” The event is part of the Connected Living Giving Hearts Open House Week.
Mission 31 
The following dates are still available for Sunrisers or local business teams to serve dinner at the Elgin St. Mission – December 8th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th. Mission 31 receives no regular government funding, and with an increased demand for their services, it is incredibly important that we do whatever we can to fundraise for this vital cause. 
Christmas Party
See everyone at our annual Sunriser Christmas Party on Thursday, December 7th at Peppi Panini (downtown). The fun and frivolity starts at 5pm! 
Toy Drive
From Past-President Kris:
As we approach our third Christmas without our sweet boy, we want to continue our tradition of collecting children's toys to donate in Everett's honour. We're collecting new, unwrapped toys for children from infant to age 12 until December 11th. We will once again be donating to Our Children, Our Future, which is a local, not-for-profit charitable organization committed to securing a better future for local children. We want to spread Evvy's love and continue his legacy by brightening the lives of other kiddos in our community. For donating options, reach out to Kristofer Cacciotti - 705-690-5159. Or I can collect them all at Rotary on Thursday! Thanks everyone! 🎅❤️
Greetings from your new District Governor to you friendly Rotarians. Welcome to a new Rotary fiscal year. Welcome new Presidents and your boards. We have a new Rotary International President, Jennifer Jones, our first woman in this role from Windsor, Ontario!  Happy Canada Day.
At last week’s meeting our guest speaker was local funeral director and renowned philanthropist, Geoffrey Lougheed. While Geoff has received many community, provincial and national accolades, it was clear during his presentation on the Sudbury Food Bank, that what was most important to him, was his ability to do good in the world today. He provided some background on how the food bank started 40 years ago which focused on how individuals would eat that day. Today the Food Bank serves 17 thousand people every month, the majority of which are children. Geoff emphasized the importance of meeting people where they are at and treating everyone with respect and care. A full 100% of funds raised go directly to purchasing and distributing over 500 tons of food every year for our community.

We meet Thursdays at 7:15am at the Northbury Hotel, 50 Brady Street, Sudbury. Guests and new members are most welcome!
