Service above self....you are welcome!

About Our Club

 

"Service Above Self"....  That kind of says it all when it comes to Rotary.

Hello, and welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Cranberry Township – Sunrise. Whether it is an endeavor by Rotary International, a Project by the Local Rotary District, or a Community Improvement Effort by our local club, the theme of "Service Above Self" is at the heart of what we Rotarians do on a daily basis. Here you will find information about one of the most active service clubs in the Cranberry Township area. We are one of over 33,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries as part of Rotary International - non-political, non-religious, and open to all cultures, races and creeds. The Cranberry Sunrise Club is over 40 members strong and we are passionate about serving our community, our friends, our neighbors, visitors and guests of our wonderful community.

Our club is comprised of men and women from varied backgrounds but a common cause.  That cause is to better our community and to help those around the world who need a helping hand.  Locally we have scholarship programs, school dictionary programs, as well as fundraisers for the local Gleaners Food Bank, VOICE, The Community Playground and differing causes for the need of the day.  On a larger scale we foster international relations and better understanding of each other through our common thread of Rotary.  We also have been instrumental in the fight to eradicate Polio and to provide clean drinking water to those in need.  Numerous individuals from our club right here in Cranberry have been to Mexico to help through Caring Hearts and to many other places around the world to help the less fortunate.  They often come back and humbly just go back to work and go about their lives with no fanfare.....they are truly unsung heros.  They know it is not about personal accolades but rather it is about utilizing ones resources and skills toward the betterment of our fellow citizens of the world.  THAT IS ROTARY !
