The first of our 4 Little Libraries has been installed at Mountain View Park!! Thanks in part to a Rotary District 5280 Grant, we were able to build and fully stock four little libraries!! The other three are soon coming to Lundigan Park, Vickroy Park, and Johnny Carson Park. The libraries will feature book geared towards children and young adults. It is our sincere hope that these libraries will encourage children and families to read. Thanks to our partners the Rotary Club of Burbank Noon and The Literacy Club! A special thank to the City of Burbank Parks & Recreation and Library Departments for helping us make it happen!!

Club members donated bicycles to the Bike Angel program. In Burbank, the Bike Angels are a group of mostly city employees who refurbish bikes during the year to help insure kids in need get a bicycle. In addition to haunting garage sales during the year for used bikes, members also donate any shortfall of bikes to ensure every child that asked for one, gets one. This is in conjunction with the Salvation Army Angel Tree program where community members take tags from trees in various locations in the city and fulfill requests. Then members volunteered on distribution day when food, toys, and bikes are given to needy families. Smiles like this one are what its all about!!
The club adopted 4 families at the Coordinating Council Holiday basket program. This is a community wide event. Each of our families received food and gifts for each member of the family. Club members also volunteered on distribution day delivering baskets to needy families.
The Burbank Noon and Sunrise Rotary Clubs had a huge turnout to the annual BCR Christmas Party! Each year we host a dinner and Christmas party for developmentally disabled teens and adults in our area complete with gifts and Santa Claus.
Burbank Sunrise proudly sponsored and served approximately 3,000 people at the annual Salvation Army Community Thanksgiving dinner. Our Rotaract and Interact members served and bussed tables while members dished up the food consisting of turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing, gravy, and rolls.
Burbank Sunrise is a proud supporter of Wellness Works and Not On Our Watch 2017! Not On Our Watch brings awareness to the community of the veterans who lose their battle with PTSD. From September 20th through the 23rd, Veterans stood watch on the Colorado Bridge in Pasadena, 24 hours a day. As veterans stood or walked posts on the bridge, they wore a dog tag that represented a veteran who was being remembered/honored. Club members made donations and attended the opening ceremony. One of our veteran members, Juan Guillen, participated in the vigil. On September 20th, the opening ceremony will begin at 10am. On September 23rd, the closing ceremony will begin at 10am where we honor all our fallen.
Burbank Sunrise was honored to  be the first club visited by Governor Cozette Vergari from District 5280!!!! We presented her with a $500 donation for Rob's Run towards the eradication of polio! #Rotarians
Burbank Sunrise was well represented at the 2017 Rotary International Convention in Atlanta Georgia! We were able to take in the sights, be entertained, eat amazing food, and be inspired by the good Rotarians are doing all over the world. Highlights included Bill Gates speaking on finishing the challenge to eradicate polio and Ashton Kutcher speaking on the problem of human trafficking.
Burbank Sunrise and Noon Clubs applied for and received a District Grant to refurbish the social hall for the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Burbank. We painted, installed new ceiling light panels, upgraded the electrical in the hall and on the outside, installed new lights in the hall, and replaced exterior fixtures better illuminating the front of the building. This will enable them to rent out the hall to create a cash flow.
