Good Morning!

Welcome to the Champaign-Urbana Sunrise Rotary Club website. We meet every Thursday morning at 6:45 a.m. (yes, 6:45 in the morning). Although this may be early for some, not for this lively group of philanthropic people. Each week we enjoy fellowship, fun and lots of laughter all the while supporting many worthy charitable organizations in our community, nationally and internationally.

Rotary Social on Lake Shelbyville

On a warm September Saturday, several C-U Sunrisers and guests took out the ‘Party Barge’ on Lake Shelbyville. There was lots of great conversation and food as we slowly sailed up the lake… only to loose the steering at Eagle Creek. However, it was a perfect opportunity to go for a swim (Todd, Beth and Ed) and to fire up the grills and have lunch.

After we were towed back in to the marina, Keith Brandau invited us all over to his houseboat. Thanks Keith for putting this all together!
