Sunset This Week: Surfers for Autism

Surfers for AutismThis week on the Sunset Club calendar is a Saturday service project with Surfers for Autism:
4th Annual Bay Area Surfers For Autism Beach Festival
Saturday, July 12th
9A-4P
Pass-a-Grille Beach, St. Petersburg

The Surfers For Autism mission is to unlock the potential of people with developmental delays, support advocacy for autism issues and scientific research.

At their beach events, like the one we are volunteering at, the surfers are provided a safe, fun, judgement free environment where highly skilled surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, fire engine tours and much more.

This project is a club favorite and we are all very excited to get out to the beach on Saturday! Click here to SIGN UP and join us!

Sunset Club is Trying a New Format!

Happy New YearRotary celebrates the beginning of a new year today! With the new year comes a new format at the Sunset Club!

In an effort to better utilize our time together and maximize the positive impact in members’ lives and in our community, we are trying a new weekly schedule effective immediately.

In a nutshell, a typical month for the Sunset Club will now consist of:

  • Two (2) engaging speaker meetings at the Hilton, on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month.
  • A service project, usually falling sometime during the 2nd week of each month.
  • A social get together, usually falling sometime during the 4th week of each month.

Service projects and social locations will change each month, so the best way to keep up with this new format is going to be to follow along on our club calendar or Facebook page.

You can find our July Schedule here.

Cheers to a new Rotary year, and an exciting new format! Come check it out!
