After a year off, Stillwater's original beer tasting event is back! This awesome event was started in 2007 by the members of the Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club as a way to raise money for our many service projects. We will once again be aboard the Avalon Riverboat overlooking the beautiful St. Croix River in historic downtown Stillwater on Saturday, October 2nd from 11:30am to 3:30pm. The boat does not leave the dock during the event giving attendees the flexibility to come and go as they need. Your ticket gets you a commemorative tasting glass, a food item and 4 hours to sample some of the best and newest regional beers and spirits poured directly from the brewers. Participants love the setting, the access to the brewers, the fellowship, the music and the cause. You can find more information and order tickets from BrewersBazaar.com.

Stillwater Sunrise Rotary spans the globe and joins with other Rotary clubs in Maryland, Minnesota and Niger to provide solar power to two schools in Niger!

As published in the Remember Niger Coalition (RNC) Summer Connection, the schools now have consistent power for computer labs and classrooms at the Niamey School for the Deaf and the Hamsa Girls Education Center. Donations like ours helped RNC expand their impact, enhance educational experiences for greater quality and equip students with the tools they need to transform their lives and communities. I think we can be proud to be Rotarians who are Serving to Change Lives!

Stillwater Sunrise Rotary is supporting a sustainable agroecology project in Peru. This global grant is one of the first grants to be approved by Rotary International using the newest area of focus - the environment.

About 300 families (1200 - 1500 people) in the Community of Hilloc, Peru will be benefiting from the community garden. They will grow food, nutrition and futures by using agroecology and sustainable agriculture practices. The project will involve supervision of planning and construction of greenhouses, and training in the best practices of planting the crops. The greenhouse projects are driven by some of the main principles of agroecology: responsible land stewardship, respect for local knowledge and profitable production. The project will improve food security and nutrition for these global neighbors.

You can see the pictures from our potluck picnic in the web album, here. We had over 25 attendees from both clubs, and wonderful food that everyone brought to share. The weather was perfect, and there was some cutthroat (well, casual, actually) horseshoes and bocce competition as well. The s'mores were a success too, as several had to go in to wash up after dessert. Click on "more" see Margie's perfect marshmallow.

Stillwater Sunrise Rotary hosted the inaugural Bridge the Valley – Bike Rally last Sunday, August 15th  in Stillwater. 
500 registered bike riders had picture perfect weather with sensational views and after-ride experiences in downtown Stillwater. 
Nearly 100 volunteers were engaged throughout the River Valley supporting the Bike Rally.
 
The outcomes and results of the first annual Bridge the Valley – Bike Rally will continue to support Stillwater Sunrise Rotary in doing good around the world! 

We had a great inaugural Bridge the Valley – Bike Rally last Sunday in Stillwater.  We had almost 500 registered riders and almost perfect weather. Our riders had a great day of biking, views, and after-ride experience in Stillwater.
