Sunrise Foundation Director Ann Syrett has a special place in her heart for Rotary and its Ambassadorial Scholars Program.  Way back in 1973, Ann spent a year as a Scholar, hosted by District 1210 in the British Midlands.  During that academic year, along with working on her  Master’s Degree at the University of Keele, Ann was “adopted” by her Rotary Counselor, Ron Lucas, of the Newcastle-under-Lyme Club, and his family and spoke at over 35 Rotary venues.  Her experiences in this much wider world than the one she grew up in, a small town on the Oregon Coast, piqued her interest in an international career and the rest is, as they say, history.  

Following completion of her MA, Ann pursued a career with US State Department and spent the intervening 30 years traveling the world as an American diplomat, serving at foreign posts as diverse as Rwanda and London, Paris and Haiti, Egypt and Antigua.  Her final and most challenging overseas position was as the US Consul General in Cairo, Egypt, in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the USA.  

When it came time to retire, Ann and Tony, her husband of over 30 years she met during her studies in Britain, chose the BVI as their home, having fallen in love with the Islands when Ann served at the US Embassy in Antigua.   Ann was delighted she would be in one place long enough to join Rotary herself and give back to the organization that played such a pivotal role in the direction her life took.  

“I can honestly say that my year as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar was the key to my life’s journey ever since.  It led me to a tremendously exciting life of public service and adventure and, even more important, it brought my path across that of the most important person in my life, my sweet husband, Tony.  Thank you, Rotary Foundation and all the Rotarians who support it, for everything!!”

Dear Fellow Rotarians,
 
As President of the Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town for the past year, I continue to be filled with a need to give my heartfelt thanks to the officers, members, and friends of the club.  We have grown much together in this past year that passed so quickly.
 
Together, we co-hosted the Rotaract Club of Virgin Gorda, and I hope that we can continue to show our support to this growing club and encourage the youth to do great things in our community.  I will be visiting them from time to time as Immediate Past President, and it is my hope that some of you will join me.  We also launched the Green Machine computer initiative, delivering refurbished computers to the Isabella Morris Primary School.  We supported disaster relief in St. Vincent and The Philippines, something we should be very proud of.  I hope that we can continue these endeavours along with our other established initiatives in the community.    
 
We celebrated our 5th year together with a wonderful meeting and a fellowship event, and I am eager to see what the next 5 years will bring.  Our club has grown to what feels like a true family, and I am proud of that.  I am very happy to hear that some of our previously-absent members have come back because the club simply feels good again.  Also, it is clear to me that we are no longer just the new club, but a club that stands upright on its own.  We achieved many accomplishments at the recent District Conference in Cayman, such as First Class Club, District Governor's Platinum Award, Public Image Citation, Club of the Month Bronze, and others.  Way to go Sunrise!!!  
 
We had meetings that encouraged the free exchange of ideas amongst our members, such as Shame The Trashers!  
 
Rotarians Edwin, Marvin, Jeanette, and Shana brought us 4 new members who are second-to-none, and I want to thank each of them for adding such quality members to our club.  Rotarians Karl, Kendall, Robert, and Maria, thank you for joining the best Rotary club available to you.  I am confident that you chose wisely, or in Karl's case, "SUNRISELY"!     
 
I thoroughly enjoyed this past year, and I hope you did also.  Thanks to PE Jean, VP Corleen, Past President Allison, Secretary Jeanette, Sergeant-At-Arms Ken, Treasurer Rosemarie, Assistant Treasurer Mitchel, Directors Tamara, Fanny, Natalie, Monique, EarlyAct Chair Shana, and everyone else who gave their undying support.  It was a wonderful journey, and I am truly thankful for all of you and your dedication to getting the job done in the name of Rotary.  Thank you for serving so faithfully.  
 
Thank you, Rotary Sunrise, our officers, members, and friends.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve a club that is dear to my heart.  I look forward to seeing it grow even further with your continued participation.  I am very excited about President-Elect Jean's upcoming year, and I hope that you give her even more of the same support that you gave me.
 
Yours In Rotary Service,
 
President Norman (for the last time)

Dear Fellow Rotarians,

This morning, we conducted the induction for our newest Rotarian: Maria Hopkins. I am very thankful to Rotarian Shana for bringing Maria to our club.  Congratulations to you both, and congratulations to our club for gaining a quality member!  Please welcome Maria!  Thank you, Director Fanny, for arranging today's induction. Today was a great day for Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town!
 
Yours In Rotary,
Norman Allen

I would like to thank all of those in my Club who have been a part of my team this year.  However, we could not have gotten here before those who lead before us, starting with Past President Monica, whose vision is largely responsible for the formation of our club.  Together with her team, she laid the foundation for Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town.    We thank you.  To the Rotary Club of Road Town, our sponsor, we thank you.  To the Rotary Club of Tortola, we thank you.  I’d also like to thank and recognize the remainder of our Past Presidents (Ken, Donna, and Allison), for their commitment, hard work, and for everything they have done to strengthen our club.  We would not be here without them.  As for me, it has been an honor and privilege to serve as your President. 
 
5 years ago, little did I know how many friendships would deepen and how many new ones would be created as a result of being a part of this great organization.  Little did I know how much I would learn and grow as an individual.  I could not possibly have done any of it without my team, our members, our guests, and the leadership who preceded me, and I thank all of you. 
During our history, Rotacy Club Sunrise participated in activities in Anegada, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, and Tortola, from community service to fellowship.  We have painted homes and schools, provided for the handicapped, helped the autistic, promoted literacy, supported disaster relief efforts in Haiti, The Philippines, and St. Vincent, donated recycled computers, and co-sponsored a new Rotaract club, among many other accomplishments.  We hope to continue to play an important role in our community, our District, Rotary International and the world as a whole.  We have attracted new members from all walks of life, and I am confident that we have a winning formula.
 
While performing good work in the community and the world, I hope that we can continue some of our fellowship traditions, such as games night at Rtn Heskith’s house (and sometimes PE Jean’s house), bowling night, and I will never forget our first sunset sail.  We surely know how to have fun!   
 
Where will we be in 5 years?  10?  Will President Antonio become a future president of Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town?  What about our newest members Robert, Karl, or Kendall?  What about our prospective members?  We have come a long way in 5 years, but our story is just beginning.  I look forward to our many future accomplishments in advance.
 
Friends, Fellow Rotarians, and guests, it has been a wonderful 5 years as a Charter member of this club, and I thank you very much for celebrating this important milestone with us.  Please rise and join me as I give a toast to The Queen, and To Rotary Club Sunrise.   
Happy 5th Anniversary, Rotary Club Sunrise Norman Allen 2014-04-01 00:00:00Z 0

During the singing of Christmas carols today, one of the patients came to the elevator lobby to get a closer look of us.  He was so moved by our Christmas carols that he offered to give us money!  Of course we refused it, but it was really touching that we made such a difference, especially during Christmas.  Thank you to our Rotarians Annjel, Ann, Allison, Tamara, Corleen, Fanny, Ingrid, Jean, and Rosemarie for lending their voices.  And a BIG thank you to Rotarians Rosemarie and Tamara for arranging and organizing the gifts that were greatly appreciated by the patients at Peebles Hospital.  
 
Christmas is here.

Our Big Fat Greek Wedding was a successful, fun Sunrise-style, fund raiser.  Many of our guests enjoyed the buffet and commented favorably about the Vegetable Moussaka.    As a Big Fat "Thank You" to our supporters, I am providing the recipe.  OOMPAH!
 
Vegetable Moussaka
 
Ingredients
 
1 kg potatoes (I used russet)
4 large courgettes (zucchini)
8 medium eggplants

extra virgin olive oil (for brushing the vegetables)
 
For the Sauce
 
1kg button mushrooms
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 tin chopped tomatoes
2 onions finely sliced
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 bay leaves
½ cup olive oil
 
For the Béchamel
 
1 litre fresh milk
250g butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
200g grated parmesan cheese (2/3 for the béchamel and 1/3 to sprinkle on top of the béchamel)

 
Preparation
 
Slice the potatoes, courgettes and eggplants lengthwise into ½cm slices.
 
Coat the eggplants and  courgettes on both sides with olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper
Bake in 400 degree (f) oven for 12 minutes.
 
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the potatoes and cook for exactly 5 minutes - no more, or they will be too soft.
 
 
 
The Sauce
 
Gently fry the onions in a large pan.

Add the crushed garlic and stir for 1 minute.

Add the mushrooms and continue stirring.

Add the tomatoes and bay leaves.

Add the parsley.


Continue heating until all the juice has been absorbed and you have a thick sauce.
 
 
Béchamel
In a heavy-bottomed pan gently heat the butter until it melts.

Add the flour and stir continuously, three minutes, until mixture turns golden blond in color.

Add half of the milk and continue to stir with a whisk.

When the mixture starts to thicken, add the rest of the milk whilst stirring continuously.

When it starts to thicken again, lower the temperature to the minimum and add the grated cheese and then turn off.

 
 
In a deep oven dish, coated with olive oil, place a layer with half of the potatoes at the bottom.
 
Add a layer with half the eggplants on top and then a layer with half the courgettes.
 
Spread the mushroom sauce on top.
 
Add a layer with the remaining courgettes on top of the sauce.

Add another layer with the remaining eggplants on top and finally a layer with the remaining potatoes.
 
Add the béchamel on top and sprinkle the remaining cheese over it.
 
Bake in a pre-heated moderate oven (375 degrees f) for approx. 40 minutes or until it has turned a golden colour on top.

Today, we had our first Club Assembly for the 2013-2014 year at Maria's By The Sea.  Rotarian James joined us after a prolonged absence, and our meeting was joined by members of our sponsored EarlyAct club.  Our directors presented their plans for the Rotary year, and we proposed 3 new members for membership.  

This Saturday (October 5th), let's join the Charity Run at FSN at 4:00pm to support a great cause during Domestic Violence Month.  Bring your canned goods for donation!  

During our October 8th meeting, EarlyAct will again be joining us, and we hope that they will tell us a joke or two.  It's always a pleasure having them around!  During this meeting, we will begin taking nominations for our upcoming Board of Directors and Officers for 2014-2015.  Let's identify our future leaders and bring them on board!

On October 15th, we will be voting on some Club By-Law changes and celebrating a Family Day, organized by Director Fanny.  Bring your friends, family, and loved ones!  

Don't miss our Day Sail, planned for October 19th.  Details are coming together, but I hope to enjoy a nice day at sea together.  Let's enjoy some fellowship!   

On October 22nd, we will be holding our elections!

Don't miss out on what will be a month filled with activities for all!

Today, our meeting was chaired by Rotaract!  Our breakfast at Marias By The Sea was packed to capacity, to the point where they ran out of food!  Our meeting was full of extra energy and AG Delma watched on as we heard from Mr. Marquese Maduro, our guest speaker for the week.  Mr. Maduro spoke about recycling initiatives covering glass, metal waste, and compost, etc.  It was amazing to hear the various initiatives being spearheaded by the Waste Management Department, and I am thoroughly excited about the possibilities.  Imagine finally having the ability to recycle!  They even started a "curbside" pickup!  Mr. Maduro's presentation was so moving that President-Elect Jean began to practically recruit him on the spot to join our club!  

Don't miss Guess Whose Foot on Friday, hosted by His Excellency and Mrs. McCleary!  Tickets are only $25.00!

 "Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. (Proverbs 3:27) If you have the means to respond, do not withhold good from those who are in need. If you have it to give, give. God is not asking you to do what you cannot do or give what you do not have to give. If you have the power to act yourself or you can influence others to provide service, by all means get the job done."

Our weekly meeting began in high spirits on the heels of a very successful Games Night on Saturday (the pictures in the attached bulletin speak volumes!).  We were a rather large gathering of Sunrise Rotarians, visiting Rotarians and guests, totalling 30 in number.  In our midst were the top five performing students of the Primary Five examination - affectionately dubbed the “Fab Five”- accompanied by their parents.  Director Marvin must be commended for shining the spotlight on youth achievement.
