Creating lasting change in communities around the world

Welcome to Sarasota Sunrise Rotary

We are neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.

For more than 100 years, Rotary has united leaders committed to applying their expertise to better their communities.

The Rotary Club of Sarasota Sunrise, chartered in early 1981, is active in community and international projects ranging from helping under-privileged local children to supporting the worldwide drive launched by Rotary to eradicate polio.

Members of the Sarasota Sunrise club meet every Friday morning at Der Dutchman Restaurant at the corner of Beneva and Bahia Vista for an hour of fellowship, networking, discussing how to raise funds for projects and listening to a local or nationally known speaker talking about issues of current interest.
