Bishop Sunrise Rotarian and amateur chef Ed Morse made the soup at the November 4th Soup Kitchen (a delicious lentil!).  Contrary to popular belief, the Soup Kitchen doesn't always serve soup. In fact, Ed noted that of the many times he's volunteered at Soup Kitchen over the years, this was only the second time he's made soup.  Thanks Ed!  Other volunteers that day were Sarah Sheehan, Bernadette Johnson, and Marshall Rudolph.  Sarah and Bernadette deserve special commendation for filling in at the last minute for some vacancies on the work crew.
On November 2, 2022, the Club held a social event honoring certain Non-Rotarians with Paul Harris Fellows for their volunteer work on the Club's project to provide much-needed medical supplies, equipment, and professional training to medical clinics in Chiapas, Mexico (a very rural, remote area of Mexico).  The project has been funded by global grants from the Rotary Foundation.  Bishop Sunrise Rotarian Ramona Delmas has spearheaded the project since its inception.  Honorees were local OB-GYN doctors Martha Kim and Jeanine Arndal, interpreters Jose Garcia and Julie Burns, and Rick Delmas (the "detail man").  Event attendees included two Interact Club officers, an RYE student and her host family, and members of the Rotary Club of Bishop (the noon club).
Bishop Sunrise Rotarian Ramona Delmas presented a moving PowerPoint explaining the history of this amazing service project, which she has spearheaded from day one.  Ramona received a well-deserved standing ovation for her work.
Paul Harris Fellow recipient OB-GYN doctor Martha Kim, who went to Chiapas multiple times to help train the doctors there.  Fellow OB-GYN Jeanine Arndal was also honored but was under the weather and unable to attend in person.
Paul Harris Fellow recipient Jose Garcia, an expert translator who has volunteered countless hours in support of the Chiapas project.  Fellow translator Julie Burns was also honored but was unable to attend in person.
Paul Harris Fellow recipient Rick Delmas was honored for his countless hours working behind the scenes as "the detail man" for the Chiapas project.
 
 
 
Jason Brown (on the left) was formally inducted as a member of Bishop Sunrise Rotary by President Marshall Rudolph.  His sponsor was Jeff Gabriel and his classification is Film Production (how cool!).  Jason is already an active member of the club, having participated in service projects, fundraisers, social events, and of course club meetings.  We're lucky to have him.  Welcome Jason!
Bishop Sunrise Rotarian John Loomis helping to install one our new "brand-compliant" Rotary signs on the North entrance to Bishop (off Hwy 6).  John's nephew Dean assisted and took this picture!  John and Ed Morse also installed signs at the other North entrance to Bishop (off Sierra Highway near the former veterinarian building).  Thanks guys!
Dr. Arndal and Dr. Kim delivered two babies by c-section with the resident physician in the newly rehabilitated operating room and installed pessaries in a dozen women.
