Link to the District's Speaker's Bureau

The District Office receives many offers of programs for clubs’ consideration. They have set up a Speaker’s Bureau online to help you find programs, and they add new programs quite often. Date added is far right hand column. You will need the account name (future) and password (yourhands) to access this list.  Here is a link.

Fair and Balanced

Please note that our club has a long standing policy regarding political candidates as speakers:
"During election season, elected officials or announced candidates may not speak to the Stillwater Sunrise Rotary Club after June 1 in the year they are up for election."
This preserves the club's "fair and balanced" status amongst our members.  Thank you for understanding.

Rotary's Areas of Focus

Rotary support grants and other activities based on six areas of focus:

  • Water & Sanitation
  • Education and Literacy
  • Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution
  • Maternal & Child health
  • Economic Development
  • Disease Prevention & Treatment

We strive to present programs that identify with at least one of these areas of focus.


Speakers That Have Contacted Us
We have been actively pursuing those in need of restoration and hope from a life of addiction for over 30 years – and as a result have provided tens of thousands of lives with a renewed hope and a positive, drug free, outlook on their future. I am reaching out to not only introduce myself, but to inquire about an opportunity to come and speak with your group on behalf of MnTC.
