Why do people join Rotary?

1. Friendship / Fellowship / Community: In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friendship and fellowship. It is one of two reasons whyRotarybegan in 1905.


2. Business Development: The second original reason for Rotary's beginning is business

development. Everyone needs to network. Rotary consists of a cross¬section of every

business community. Its members come from all walks of life. Rotarians help each

other and collectively help others.

McHenry Sunrise Rotary promotes and coordinates toy delivery to families in need during the Christmas season.

Many families in McHenry County are desperately struggling due to unexpected job loss, death of a wage earner, divorce or abandonment, illness, disability or other crises. Children in these families might not otherwise experience the joy of a gift to unwrap on Christmas. Last year we helped over 2000 kids have a nice Christmas.
This week we will sort, wrap and deliver over 8,000 toys to 2200 plus children in McHenry county. This is accomplished with the help of 300+ community volunteers.
We are working hard on our 60050/51 Community Oktoberfest. We hope you will join us for this great event . Great music, delicious food, and a tasty beverage or two will guarantee a good time. Oct 14th Noon to 9pm. Watch for our ads and invite your friends.
Happy New Year, everyone!  The Rotary Club of McHenry Sunrise is off to a great start in 2017 and we hope that you are too. As a club, we're looking forward to growing our membership, events, fundraising, and impact on the community. We have high hopes for 2017 and we want you to be a part of that growth. If you have ever wanted to give back to your community but were unsure how to make that happen, please contact us! The opportunities to get involved are everywhere and they range from donations, to volunteering, to sponsorship, and even just supporting community service through word of mouth; it all has the positive impact of us building a better community together! Your 2017 resolution to be more involved in the community is ready to be crossed off the list... reach out and join us for a complimentary breakfast, Wednesday morning's at 7:30am! 
The numbers are in for the 2016 Sunrise Secret Santa and the work that our community has done for each other is incredible! 
During the week of December 12th through December 18th, we had the help of approximately 300 volunteers who put in over 1,000 volunteer hours in order to make sure Christmas was not overlooked for kids in need. We collected over 11,000 total toys; our volunteers wrapped and delivered nearly 8,000 of those toys to 2,052 kids in 785 families all across McHenry County, and 3,000 toys were delivered to Arden Shore! The spirit of the season is truly alive in McHenry as we came together to all be "Santa". 
A massive THANK YOU goes out to the volunteers and all of our sponsors (Working World, McHenry Outdoor, Crystal Lake Bank & Trust, Black Diamond, Dream Real Estate, Worldwide Traveler, Chas Herdrich, McHenry Financial, Land Technology, Chain O'Lakes Brewing, and Cabana's on the Chain)! Also thank you to BrakeParts for use of their facility!
