Do I dare mention?

Claremont has a happy new tradition!


An idea for this town that's hot!

It's called the "Turkey Trot".


It raises funds for local athletes with needs-

A worthwhile charity indeed!


Doug, Chuck, & John were the leadership team

That produced an event which makes us all beam.


Claremont Sunrise Rotary can indeed be proud,

As it was responsible for creating a happy, motivated crowd.

---Arnie Thompson


No Rain,

only Shine!

Another great Thanksgiving with so

many reasons to be thankful--

including another successful...

Why We Run--to raise funds for Youth Sports Scholarships locally, and to support our international projects 

Turkey Trot 2010


The 3rd Annual Turkey Trot 2010 has drawn to a close.  The many months of planning and organizing, the many volunteer hours provided by Rotarians and community members alike, were rewarded with an overflow crowd and a gorgeous, picture-perfect morning.  We feel blessed and give thanks to all of our sponsors, and for the opportunity to serve our community and be instrumental in such a wonderful Claremont tradition that has been adopted by so many families.


Congratulations to the Overall Winners!
