Projects

Community

  • Park Benches – We have placed special benches with the Rotary Logo and Sunrise Rotary name in the parks in the City of Shasta Lake.
  • Fundraiser for UPREP scoreboard replacement
  • Shasta Lake Parade – We run the ‘Damboree Parade” to kick off the city’s Damboree Days Special Celebration. It entails a few months work getting the entries and then the fun begins as we line-up the parade participants and perform the smooth release for the parade.
  • Christmas Gifts – We purchase gifts for underprivileged children in the City of Shasta Lake. This is a fun way to involve high school youth in charitable giving.

 International

  • Rotoplast – We collected from each member a quarterly amount and sponsored our own team to repair cleft pallets in a third-world country in 2006.
  • Polio Plus Campaign – We continually contribute towards the eradication of the Polio Disease around the world.
  • LN-4 Hand Project – Reaching out and touching those in need of hands in third-world countries.

Youth

  • Scholarship Fund – We are currently building an endowment that will eventually fund our scholarship through interest generated. Our 2004 Bill Cosby performances gave us the largest boost in funding followed by special event partnerships with Win River contributed substantially to our fund.  We are currently set up to award two (four-year, $5,000 scholarships) per year and we have extended that to also be flexible enough to award two-year scholarships for vocational training, such as nursing.
  • Interact Club – We sponsor an Interact Club at Central Valley High School and will sponsor another at Mt. Lakes High School.
  • Student Recognition – Quarterly student recognition for the outstanding accomplishments as awarded by their teachers and principal. They are brought to a meeting with their parents and praised and awarded a jacket and a gift certificate.
  • Special Olympics – We furnish lunches for over 300 participants for their special games and recently we also furnished uniforms for that event.
  • School Dictionaries – We provide dictionaries for third-graders in the Gateway School District.
  • Book Project – We provide books for the Gateway Unified School District Libraries.
  • School Supplies – We donate school supplies annually in September for underprivileged at Central Valley and Mt. Lakes High Schools.
  • Camp Venture – We sponsor a number of students for the annual Camp Venture and Camp Royal Programs.
